Biddeford Pool, Maine

David and I had a great week (which certainly wasn’t long enough) in Biddeford Pool! We had a delicious food, took a really nice bike ride to Timber Point, took a tour of the nunnery building and I got some tennis in. I can’t wait to be back there.

Big Bend National Park

I’ve just spent a few wonderful days hiking in Big Bend National Park in The Chihuahuan Desert on the Texas-Mexican border. The Rio Grande River runs though about 120 miles of the park and forms the divide between the United States and Mexico. The landscape and geology throughout the park is beautiful. Although it’s hard to get to this part of West Texas, it’s absolutely worth a visit!

New Mexico Part 1

I’m having a great time in New Mexico! We have been to the Folk Art Museum in Santa Fe, an Isotopes baseball game and went on a beautiful hike in the Sandia Mountains. Here are a few photos.

Paralympics

I finally made it to Olympic Park and saw athletics at the Paralympics and spent some time in the park, which is great! I’m sad to see it all end…it’s been a great summer of sport in London.

Olympics, Part 3

Sadly, the London Olympics have come to an end, but I had a great time watching the men’s marathon, supporting the USA and GB, and of course, watching the Spice Girls perform at the closing ceremony.

Olympics, Part 2

I had another great day of Olympics! We went to boxing and saw bantam weight (56 kg), heavy weight (90 kg) and super heavy weight (+91 kg). Then, we had a lovely evening in the USA House, with red, white and blue jelly beans!

Olympics, Part 1

It’s been a great start to the Olympics in London. I caught the tail end of the men’s road race and then spent the day watching women’s gymnastics!

Polo

I went to my first polo match over the weekend. Luckily, the weather was fantastic and as it turns out, it’s really a chance to socialise and drink Pimms! It was a great afternoon.
