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.

Sunday at the lake,17.5.2015

Sunday at the lake,17.5.2015.

At the lake today it was a slow start, but soon picked up around lunch time when whole families descended on the Cafe, I think the staff do a marvelous job considering the size of the kitchen and preparing area and they certainly work their socks off at weekends.
There was the usual steering competition on the model boat lake and another children's taster session on the yachting lake, I was told that they got 45 new members at yesterday's session!.

A walk round the lakes with Pepe we discovered these Moorhen chicks just passed the first bridge on the road up to the farm. It's surprising the amount of people that walk right past them without noticing them, too busy on their mobile phones most of them and the rest not even looking or don't know what to look for, real townie's!.

Moorhen chick's
All legs and beaks hey.

These coot chicks are still doing well


And this coot still in the maternity ward 
Being well supplied with building material and food by her attentive mate.

Tact is the ability to describe others as they see themselves.

Who ever said you couldn't be wounded by a blank, obviously hasn't received a taxation form!.

Teenage boys complain there is nothing to do and then stay out all night doing it.  

     Thats it once again folks!.
May you slide down the bannister of life, with nary a splinter!.
