Snapshot Sunday:Mercedes Benz

While I was out today with the dogs I spotted a Mercedes Benz parked outside the pub. The pub is one of the best places to find cars because people will go there for a drink or a meal as they serve meals all day long. I found the second one stuffed in someone’s garage sadly in need of some work. I don’t know the years of either model but you can really see the changes in the cars over the years when you compare them.


Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge:Letter G_Needs to have the letter G

Here are my photos for the letter G at last. I took my camera with me when I went to walk the dogs this afternoon. We had a lovely walk up and down the High Street. We looked in shop windows and met a few friends who were also out and about. The dogs met a few doggy friends and some who were not their friends at all.There was a pleasant breeze as we walked. It felt good on my face and I thought the dogs looked cute with their ears blowing back as they trotted along the road. I could have stayed out all afternoon but we took over an hour anyway. Here is what I got today.

My G’s are:

  1. goal
  2. morning glory
  3. garbage
  4. garage
  5. gumball
  6. goose
  7. Gay Street

Cee’s fun foto Challenge:Letter F-fun or flowers!

Fun or Flowers

Even with the bulbs already finishing off early Vanda and I still got some nice photos of the other plants and flowers. We like a lot of the same flowers so there will be a bit of doubling up here and there. Here are the ones I took.

Snapshot Sunday: Botanical Gardens

As Vanda said we had a lovely walk through the Botanical Gardens on Saturday before heading to the newly redecorated restaurant for afternoon tea. We had a lovely Devonshire Tea with English Breakfast Tea a  firm favourite. There were some beautiful flowers in bloom but sadly the bulbs were already finishing. They were very early this year so we didn’t get to see them at their best. I am looking forward to the roses and hope I will manage to get back there again. Here are a couple of snaps that I took while walking around yesterday.

On the Road with Naomi, Wazza, Phillip, Toby and Teddy.

While my friend Phillip was over here we went for several drives and often took my two dogs Toby and Teddy along with us. We decided on a trip to “The Foreshore” by the Derwent River between Montrose Bay and Wilkinson’s Point. Wilkinson’s Point is just after you get to the Derwent Entertainment Centre or DEC as it is known around these parts. We left the car near Montrose not far from the boating clubs and walked around the bay. There is a pathway that takes you over several boardwalks until you finally pass the DEC and arrive and Wilkinson’s Point. I’ll leave it to the photos to describe what we saw along the way but it was a very nice walk despite our usual bad luck with the weather. Rain saw us dodging in and out of shelter sheds but we had a lot of fun that afternoon. There are some links for those who would like to know more about this walk.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Letter E-Needs to have two e’s in the topic word.

Here are my photos for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge Letter E. I decided to pick out a wide range of subjects from my archives for this one. The weather is still not very Spring like at the moment. We’ve had snow, hail, wind and rain over the last few weeks so getting out just to take photos has often been a wash out. Thankfully the letter E has been a much easier letter than the previous ones to find subjects for. We are starting Daylight Saving in another week and I hope we will get some nice days. It will be great to get out and take some new photos. I feel more drives in the car coming on. Anyway here is what I came up with for E.
