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.

Garden Centre Cafe Dog Walkers Club.

Today we had a day out together at Reddish Vale Country Park, we met at the Cafe there which was as you can imagine on school holidays full of parents and their children.
I even met my next door neighbours, with their lovely children, in fact all the children today were all well behaved and enjoying themselves!.
Our group all had a nice meal which we didn't have to wait too long for considering the fact they were full of customers, when it came it was nicely presented, hot and savoury and a reasonable price!.
Afterwards we went down to the information centre area and had a walk round to the small lake that the others hadn't seen before. It was nice and quiet and peaceful there and we had the place to ourselves, except for the wildlife!.

Heron.

Cormorant.

Drying out after a good fishing session.

Then it was back to the Info centre for a nice cheap cuppa, and a cornetto each.

 I'd arrived early and had a walk round the larger lakes and saw some of the others birds there and the children were there in Canadian canoe's on the river.
No pictures of the kids, its not the done thing these days is it, they were all very keen to have a stroke of Pepe and were very polite about it!.

Nice fluffy Chaffinch

Beautiful colourful little bird's 

The cygnets are both doing well  on the larger of the lakes

Mum very attentive and keeping her eye on Pepe!.

Plenty of cormorants there today.


The Great Crested Grebe Babies are both doing well 

Quite different to the parents at this stage aren't they 

Not sure what type this one is, no doubt mate Bob will let me know before I can find out myself!.

Also on my solo walk round found these colourful flowers/ weeds? with lots of bees all over them., they didn't seem to be bothered if they were Flowers or Weeds!
These were all taken with my IPhone, so turned out quite well I thought, so included them all!.

Patience is something you admire in the driver behind you and can't stand in the driver ahead of you!.

One thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion,economic status or ethnic background, is that, deep down inside, we all believe
that we are above-average drivers!

If your wife wants to learn to drive, don't stand in her way!.

  1. As always a brilliant selection of photos, it's a shame that nobody was quick enough to capture the Kingfisher.
