Family Visit 2014

Jon, Rinat and Callum arrived from London, Ontario, on Friday, 5th September 2014, for a 17-day visit. It was the first time most of Carole's family and mine had seen our, (as yet), only grandchild. Needless to say, we had a wonderful time catching up with each other and visiting lots of friends and family members. During the course of their visit, we managed to get a 5-generation shot on Carole's side of the family and a 4-generation shot on mine! Callum also got his first taste of a seaside beach ~ literally! Then, during the second week of their visit, we took them away for a short break in Solva ~ a little village in Pembrokeshire. It was new territory for all of us and we thoroughly enjoyed exploring this little 'corner' of the British Isles.

This gallery is a pictorial souvenir of those precious 17 days. I hope you enjoy the photos, even though some of them will be little more than 'family snaps'.

(This will hopefully explain my recent absence from Pbase. I'm looking forward to catching up with some of your recent shots.)
