A frosty start

We awoke to the first frost this morning. As I walked past some of the neighbours scraping their car windscreens before their journeys into work. I was so glad to have a few days off and could admire the scenery in all its glory instead!


Living by the sea the frost was not too heavy but it still gave the mobile homes - now mainly empty a white coating.

 
Sunrise is always one of my favourite times of the day ......


 and watching the sun rise over our old home town of Weymouth in the distance, was a moment to savour.


There was a thin line of mist as the warmer water flowing out from the harbour met the colder sea water.


 and the hummocks of grass captured the colour of the sun.



Thank you for all the lovely comments welcoming Tavi.  He had his second injections today, so we have another week before he can joining us for short walks and meeting other dogs. Tavi is keeping us amused in the house and garden with his cheeky antics. Some of this favourite toys are those he has captured from elsewhere in the house ......


He has looking with interest at the bottom shelf of this bookcase this morning, I'm not sure how much longer the items will remain here!



  Until next time.

  3. It's amazing that you should have your first frost when we only had ours this weekend up here. Well, we had some a couple of weeks ago but it melted away in no time. Your landscape photos are beautiful. Around here we haven't seen the sun for quite some time now.

    1. Morning is such a lovely time of the day, the light is so special then, and the stillness. Beautifully captured by you. I'm enjoying the first frosts, even if it does mean I have to wrap up warmer. Tavi is so sweet, I do miss having a dog about the house.

  5. It was cold this morning, the dahlias are all gone.
    Oh the joys of having a puppy. Have fun!

  6. Wow. I can't muster any other words to describe those photos.

    And I swear the time between getting our Baker and being able to finally take him outdoors dragged so much! Can't wait to see some fab shots of Tavi playing outside.

  10. Dear Sarah,
    The fourth photo down is just breathtaking! All are so peaceful and quite beautiful, but that is my favorite.

    Tavi, I just want to pick that little one up and give him a BIG hug.... What a sweetheart he is.
    Thank you for sharing your beautiful surroundings..

  13. Dear Sarah,

    It was lovely to catch up with you again and how very adorable your sweetest new little member of your family is.
    Tavi is so gorgeous and you must be kept busy with you new little friend.
    The photos are so beautiful and sunrise is one of my favourite times of the day too.
    Stay warm and hope you don't get too many frosts - living near the sea, you probably won't get as many.
    Enjoy the week and it was great to see some photos from your place.
    hugs
    Carolyn

  19. We have a had a little frost today. This morning was the first morning I actually felt cold as I got out of bed. The boys were thrilled that I voluntarily put the heating on! Beautiful sunrises. Aren't we lucky to live so close to the sea!

  20. What beautiful pictures! I am not a morning person, but I love pictures taken by those who are!!! Can't wait to be back in beautiful Dorset next year! Tavi looks a very happy chappie and full of fun/mischief!!! Enjoy your days off! X

  21. I remember those early "chew everything" days! And I still have reminders when I look too closely at my furniture legs! Your photographs are beautiful. The sea offers so much serenity within it's powerful forces. We are going to have snow before Thanksgiving--practically unheard of in the mid-Atlantic region.

  22. The landscape is so beautiful when it is covered with frost. Your pictures are, as always, breathtaking. Tavi's ears are hilarious - Fergus's looked just like that when he was a puppy. I think your bookcase contents are in grave danger. Please keep posting lots of puppy pictures along with your lovely seaside photos. :-)

  23. That is one cute puppy dog :) I was surprised yesterday morning when I got to work at 6.45 and people said they were defrosting the cars, mine wasn't frosted at all but Mr D said his was. They were parked on the same street but facing opposite directions, mine was facing the way the sun comes up. Interesting, think I'll face that way more often lol!

  24. Lovely sea pics Sarah, I always enjoy them. That glint in Tavi's eye looks remarkably like the expression Poppy still gets. Good luck with the book shelf! xx

  25. My oh my, how beautifully you captured that sunrise, Sarah! What a blessing to live by the sea. And your little TAVI...teeeheee....he is a cheeky little boy for sure! What a delightful little addition to your family. Hugs to you! Anita

  26. No frost here yet! Still tomatoes in the (unheated) greenhouse and summer bedding in pots - amazing. Wonderful morning pictures Sarah.

  28. Lovely images Sarah and like Mark I really like the grass hummocks reflecting the sunrise colours.

  33. Well Sarah, it's not often that I miss an English winter, but your pictures, your beautiful pictures, made me do just that!
    Especially the picture of the frost and the hummocks of grass.
    I have only seen frost, here in Greece, a handfull of times, I do live down in the South though, the North gets very heavy Winters.
    What a little darling Tavi is, I do hope that nice collection of yours on the bottom shelf, stays intact!

  34. Dear Sarah,

    Hope you and your husband have settled in your new village and home? When I look at your beautiful photo's, I think you have.For a city girl like me, it looks like paradise! Your photo's make me wish I had a dog too, to have a walk with on such a beautiful morning.

    Wishing you a happy weekend!

  35. Yes we have settled down so well in our new home. Last week I passed our old house and had no feelings for it. This surprised me as we had lived there for so long. Sarah x

  36. We had a frost too but still the nasturtiums are flowering as well as lots of other things hanging on - very strange. But fog has taken precedence this week- so I savour looking at your lovely shots of blue clear skies - beautiful.

  37. Mobil homes in England? I thought it was an American thing.

  38. Gorgeous photos and such a cute puppy! Best wishes, Pj x

  39. Hi Sarah, stunning photos! We had our first frost this week too and I was totally unprepared for scraping down the car windows! Love your little Tavi, he seems to be settling in nicely! Take care Sharon x

  40. Oh - I'm so pleased that Tavi has such a lovely home. As soon as I read this post (I haven't been around for while so had missed the introduction), I did wonder whether Tavi came from Tavistock. We too, loved Tavistock and I hope to go back there later on next year - just love the Pannier market! Tavi's a complete sweetheart and looks just so cheeky and mischievous!

  41. He is extraordinarily cute, and growing fast by the looks of it!

  42. My husband and I met at Weymouth College in 1973 and have so many happy memories if your beautiful area.

  43. And after reading back the world gets a little smaller . My husband and I lived in Tavistock where our eldest daughter was born .. I love the Pannier market there so much.

    1. I'm glad my posts have bought back some good memories for you. The pannier market is always where we head first when visiting Tavistock. Sarah x

  44. Dear Sarah,

    Your pictures are absolutely breath taking. What a scenery! There's something special with those first days of frost when the whole landscape is covered by a white blanket and everything seem so bright and crisp. And Tavi... how sweet he is.♥

    Take care dear Sarah.

  45. HI Sarah,
    Beautiful photos and sunrise is also my favorite time of the day too. You little Tavi is soooo adorable. They are so fun at the age and yes, you need to keep watch on where they are at, at all times. With Opie, I had a lot of toys for him but he did manage to chew few things. He is pretty good about leaving thing alone.
    I'm glad you enjoyed the photos on my post.
    Have a wonderful day.
    Blessings!

  46. Gosh - your pictures are truly gorgeous. If I ever miss the sea I always know if I pop in here I'll get my fix.

  47. Hi Sarah, I'm catching up with blog reading when I can and have just read through your recent posts. So pleased to read that Tavi has joined your family, what fun to have a puppy in the house! Love your frosty photos, especially the tufts of grass, wow, so beautiful. We've had just one morning of frost here in NW London, last Saturday, and it was all melted by mid-morning, leaving finger numbing cold behind (I managed just one hour in the garden before fingers complained!)
