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 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.

Monday, 18 September 2017

This weekend, 17-18th September 2017.

This Sunday the PJMP Dog Walkers Club met at Pico'o in Glossop which as I've said before is Dog friendly,so that's our interest there, plus its a nice friendly atmosphere and the interior always gives you something else to look at that you missed the first and possibly second time around!.

Mary and the three dogs waiting for our grub to appear!.

Even the shop next doors thinks of the dogs.

Monday saw us all at Reddish Vale, but Catastrophe!, the Cafe there as decided that after the last school holidays there isn't enough business to open in the week, can't blame them really can you, still they are still going to open at weekends!.
So it was a walk round the lakes and a cuppa in the info centre.
  
Always good to take photo's of as they stand so still waiting for a passing meal.

One of the cygnets, looking a bit more regale now,  

Not so regale now, bottoms up, can just see dad's head, bottom right!.

This Moorhen is taking a chance with its leg within reach of this Terror-pin!.

Can you see how many Cormorants in this picture?. 

Its 7! plus a heron on the right.

A bit nearer,

Think I've mentioned it before, but if you didn't get it, their feathers aren't as waterproof as ducks to help them dive under the water, so they have to dry themselves out afterwards.



The other end of the lake.


On the small lake there was a few visitors as it is quieter in the week. 

A nice fluffy young moorhen.

And the Little grebe is still there hiding at the side of one of the islands.

So we all went our separate ways and it was Morrisons for Fish and Chips for me!.

What do you get if  you cross a cat with a gorilla?,
An animal that puts you out at night.

No body will ever win the battle of the sexes,
There's too much fraternising with the enemy!.

A critic is a legless man who teaches running!.
