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.

Easter Sunday,2017.

Woke up today to bright sunshine and thought the weather forecast I'd seen the day before couldn't have been more wrong, but by the time I'd showered and shaved it became apparent that the forecast was right after all, it was a light drizzle so decided to go out anyway!.
We went to Reddish Vale as there was a Easter Do on there.


The band setting up

What a pity the weather was the usual bank holiday kind!.

The volunteers 

Setting up the Easter trail for the children.

The rear of the visitor centre, on our walk to the fields.

This is at the entrance to the playing fields. 








Signs round the Vale.


Then on to the lakes to see the wildlife.

The baby Moorhens are doing well.

The Swans nesting.

Having a snack of grass cuttings.

The Grebes still on the nest can't see any babies yet!.

Dad, very attentive.


The Mandarins all very aggressive looking for mates. 























This Mallard seems to have quite a following.




This Coot has quite a big nest Hey!.

Resting before the crowds arrive.

Then it was home to dry out!.

Pity about the weather for the event!, hope it didn't stop too many turning out!.
..............................................................................

Organic!, at my age I need all the preservatives I can get!!.

On a billboard ad for a safe company.
If your stuff is stolen its not our Vault.

A sign on the side of the road with a message from the police,
If you drink and drive, we'll provide the chasers!.
