it's been many years since I took a summer holiday, but this year was the exception to the rule. And where better to go but home? Even with the rain, Halifax, you still captured my heart again. We surfed. We swam. We seagull-spotted (and they spotted our lunch). And we celebrated - my grandparents have been together for a jaw-dropping sixty years - and we surprised them in spades (surprise party! surprise grandchildren visiting! surprise friends and other assorted family!).
