On New Year's Eve we had friends Faye and Jamie staying with us, with 3 year old Finley and baby Jakob. In the afternoon we decided to go for a walk on the beach. It was a gorgeous bright afternoon and the sun was beginning to set, casting a wonderful golden glow over Spurn Point.
Jamie and Pete walking ahead.
After our walk on the beach, we got ready to party in the New Year with all of our neighbours at Dave and Karen's house party. It just worked out that it was Pete's weekend off, so he was able to have a few drinks. Infact, he seemed to be enjoying the champagne as the clock struck midnight. It was a lovely evening that everyone enjoyed and a great start to the new year. We have a very exciting year ahead of us! Only a few months until the big day...!
On New Year's Day we went for another lovely walk on the beach. I think our visitors enjoyed their stay and didn't really want to leave, especially 3 year old Finley who has made lots of friends here!
We were coming to the end of our walk when the pagers went off and the bells sounded: a shout. Pete and Jamie were off in seconds and were gone until after the sun had gone down. So we had a lovely chilled afternoon, watching Christmas films and drinking hot chocolate. A wonderful weekend to bring in the year 2012, and what a year it's going to be :)
