Diamond jubliee weekend

This weekend the Diamond Jubilee celebrations are taking place.  Most of us have Monday and Tuesday off, so a nice long weekend to celebrate. I have never seen so many union jacks flags everywhere!

 I hope everyone has a great weekend to celebrate this unique occasion . I admire the hard work and dignity of an amazing woman.

  1. We have Monday off as it's our Queen's Birthday holiday, but I shall be very busy at a craft market that a friend and I are organising.
    There doesn't seem to be much to show for the Jubilee down here, apart from on the news of the preparations in London! It must be an amazing sight to see all the flags flying. Enjoy your lovely long weekend and all the celebrations.

  2. A lovely post Sarah...
    I agree with your comments about the Queen (Soo dignified)
    Have a super time!

  15. Hi Sarah,

    We have had a holiday here, celebrating Queens birthday weekend, which has been lovely.
    I have been enjoying watching the celebrations and loved seeing your photographs with all the red, white and blue and all the Union Jacks.

    enjoy the celebrations and the new week

  16. How exciting for your Country this weekend. I have seen some of the footage on the News.

  17. Hi Sarah,
    I do not live close to the beaches, about an hour and half to most beaches. There are some beaches I will not go to, too dirty and that is a shame. We usually get to the beach early to avoid traffic, it is terrible here is Southern California. I do not mine the long drive but stuck in traffic is not a good thing. Now is the time for families to vacation, summer break here in the USA.
    There are beaches that allow dog and others do not. We check the website for that. There are beaches that have blocks of the year that dogs are allowed or portions of a beach where they allowed. The beaches I like the most are in the area of Monterey, Northern California. Very nice up there. We hope to get back up there some day soon. Thanks for your visit and comment. Have a great day.

  18. Dear Sarah,
    congratulations to your son. yes, what a fitting way to end his varsity days.. He will be going on a long journey now.
    Lovely post Sarah,
    I was glued to the tv. at least i could watch sky news on my portuguese tv. It covered most of the jubilee, such a fantastic affair. truly something i will never forget. I missed some of the singers at the concert. would love to find out now if there will be a dvd of it all.!
    Great photos of your sun running.
    enjoyable post
    best wishes happy thursday val x x x
