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.

Today at the lake, 20.1.2016

Today at the lake, 20.1.2016.

Today at the lake it was brilliant sunshine and we had a full house at the Lake Cafe breakfast club, with Pork pie and a nice iced cake as it was Barry's birthday, had to keep it out of sight though or the Cafe staff would take a dim view of eating our own food, after all if everyone did it the Cafe would close and there's nothing sadder than a boarded up Cafe is there!.
After a chat putting the world to rights and a good laugh we all went our various ways, some shopping others ironing and me and the hound round the park with the Bridge camera today, after missing the Cormorants on Thursday!.
Today were in luck sighting a few pair of Goosander's!, they must just be passing though and stopped for a rest and a snack, remember them doing it last year for a couple of days.

Cormorants still there after a busy weekend emptying the big lake, (see previous post)



A young Moorhen.



A couple of seasiders!.


And finally King Tut the Egyptian Goose  looking for his friends the couple of Swans he seems to attached himself to.

Tut's pal's

Nice view of the dipping pool the Young Rangers that meet here fish out all sorts of bugs and try to identify them

So although it was quite cool out of the sun, we've seen worse days in the Summer here! good day out and Pepe enjoyed it too I'm sure.

Always keep your words soft and sweet,
Just in case you have to eat them.

 Don't hate yourself in the morning,
Sleep till noon.

And remember,
Drive carefully!,
Its not only cars that can be recalled by their maker.
