Weekend away snippets

Just a few photos from my weekend away at Britannia Bay. It’s the most peaceful stretch of beach ever. I wish I could spend at least a week there, soaking up the fresh air, sun and beauty. Not the best pics ever but just wanted to share them anyway, don’t you love the old boat filled with plants? And what do you think of the birthday cake I made? It was very tasty and so were the cupcakes!
