Welcome to my new Blog



Welcome to my Blog.
My Blog is mostly about my hobbies, ie Model boats,Cross Stitch, Gardening, Days out and about and Photography with pictures taken at and around our Model Boat club at Etherow Country Park, where I can be found quite a few days a week on the landing stage, you might recognize the hat and the dog rather than me. My models and other hobbies can be found in the tabs at the top above the header picture.
There will also be entries of days out with my long haired Chihuahua "Pepe", weather permitting of course.

Days at Etherow

Friday saw Pepe and I at Etherow as it appeared nice and sunny at home, but once at the park it was more open and quite cold.
Took a few pictures with the new camera as shown.

The ducks in a feeding frenzy as there weren't many people about to feed them.

And don't fee sorry for the little Mandarin Duck in the middle of this group as they are able to stand up for themselves

And Pepe found a new friend, both got their coats on!

Saturday saw us back at the park with John, to try out the new Jet ski! , Met Colin there sailing his "J" Class and what a fabulous paint job on that, there again he bought it off Terry Miles who knows about paint as its his job.

Another pleasant surprise met Velda and I's friend Margaret in the park, she  loss her Jack Russell terrier "Sally" at the back end of last year and surprise surprise there she was with a new one 

A three year old rescue Jack Russell, just picked up that day and introducing her to the joys of Etherow, a bit nervous but  soon came round with a few treats out of my pocket. 
Sylvia was there and as she had just lost her "Laddie" was tempted again I could see, good company, though very tying aren't they.

Well that's all folks, hopefully it will be getting lighter and brighter soon.
