Getting away from it all

Eight women, three nights, one cottage, a lot of coffee, a reiki room, an incredible fox sighting, many bags of vegetables to be juiced, a surprise visit from a Blondie Bear, a few tears, a roaring fire, plenty of crumpets and chocolate, and a heck of a lot of raucous laughter. Thank you Sas, Jo, Megg, Lisa, Leonie, Penny and Emma. xo

    I was once sitting outside my old back door late at night getting some fresh air, when a fox came down the garden sniffing about. It didn’t seem to notice me and just before it got near enough to touch I got a bit nervous and moved my feet so it would know I was there. It looked up totally startled and ran back up the garden – an unusually close encounter for both of us, I think!

    Oh- that sounds perfect. So glad that you found some quiet time among deep friendship… fox and blondie bear must have made for welcome additions!

    Such beautiful moments captured! And what is up with foxes? I had one napping in my garden bed a few months ago … got some great shots before he wandered off. Still pinching myself (and we had a fox sighting at Squam last Sept by Pixie, of course!)
