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.

Walk on the wild side, 4.2.2015.

Walk on the wild side, 4.2.2015.

Today at the lake it was nice and bright and as long as you kept on the move it was very pleasant!.
Had breakfast at the Cafe and a chat will friends with their dogs all  enjoying the company as well.
The Cafe from a different angle, plenty there enjoying the sun!.


Jean and Button, another Solitaire fan!.

On the island in the big lake, the cormorant keeping his feathers clean and dry

Big webbed feet for swimming under water.



A bit further round there is a Badger sett, and it looks like they are having a bedding change.


Part of the old workings from the coal mine, the coal was used at the mill, the old mill owners didn't miss a trick did they!.

A nice Chaffinch spotted!.

The weir

Just showing off now, Black and White and just above the right side of the weir there is a Red barn.

View of the shy ducks on the top lake behind the sluice hut. 
 Tufted ducks and Mandarins


  
Weir Cottage, there are toilets to the left of the car and behind them is the path through the woods back to the Cafe.

People on the top path in the woods

Me and Pepe up there looking down, like to get up there every year, just to see that I can!.

On the to path, some nice juicy bugs under the bark here


Plenty of bird boxes up here too.

Up in the woods.

Not daft this one, stays near the Cafe with his mate.

And so back to the cafe

There you have it a tour round the lakes and back for a nice toasted teacake and a hot Coffee to warm up though not too cold after doing the top pathway!.

 On the way home we called at friends Bob and Joyce for another Coffee and check out the progress on Bob's present project.
The inside decking, with lino!.

Fitted with Bob's unique motor mounts 4 in all!!, its really big this one!.

Bargain of the week, a pot for the Arachnid Cactus, 99p from a charity shop, you can't take the 1p change can you!, looks nice and hot for a cactus doesn't it!.

What ducks don't rust
Stainless Teal.

Proud father; "My baby looks just like me!".
Nurse; "Well, never mind, as long as it's healthy".

When he was born he was so ugly that the doctor slapped his mother.

Why are parrots always clever?
Because they Suck seed!.

Thats all folks, until next time.
