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.

Round the lake. June 2015.

Round the lake. June 2015.

Round the lake this week, Pepe and I had coffee and a teacake at the cafe with friends Bob and Joyce with their Greyhound Shadow who they were Doggie sitting for the week for neighbours.
I mentioned in the previous post I'd not seen any Mandarin ducklings and on Monday there these little beauties were!.


Had a sail with my Fiesta yacht on Monday as well.

Repaired my Micro Magic when I got home.

Back at the lake!.
 A little tree sparrow.


 A juvenile Moorhen.

On the way up to the hide saw these different types

 Can't get away from these beauties.

Up at the hide, what can Pepe see?.

I think this plant is called Ragged Robin.


 Then, just managed to catch this Cormorant taking off 


 Then it was back to the cafe for a drink and a toasted teacake!.


 Lot of work going on near to the Badgers sett.
They are going to reinforce the canal wall, but need to cut out the tree roots first that are damaging the wall.

A nice sunny day out, both Pepe and I got home tired but happy.

A bloke lent me a book on memory training last week.
I want to return it, but I can't remember his name.

That's all for now folks
