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.

Swanning around again, 22.6.2018.

Met friends again at Daisy Nook Country Park Cafe today, great meeting place!.
5 humans and 3 dogs!.
After putting the world to  rights, discussing the various teams in the World Football Cup, and the state of our coin collecting it was too late to go round the park!.
So Pepe and I set off for home and on the way back I remembered someone had mentioned that there were a family of swans on the lake at the side of the road on the way down to Mockeridge Garden centre.
Had a quick look round the garden centre but didn't find anything that interested me so on the way back up the road parked up and walked to the lake and there they were.

 

But as always seems to be the case, they were on the other side of the lake!, even my big zoom couldn't pull them in any closer!

There were plenty of pond life about, such as these dragonflies and small fish in the water.


So as it was quite hot and didn't want to leave Pepe in a hot car decided to leave the Swans for another day.
Got back in the car and made my way to the roundabout near the Metro Tram car park and there they were on the side of the road, they had climbed out of the water and looked like they were having an afternoon class or is that my over active imagination again   
  

"Pay attention at the back Gladys"!.



It was nice to see so many youngsters, not like the parks were many of them seem to get taken by predators of one kind or another  

After tea I noticed that the Moon was in sight and took this picture even though it was still daylight!, will have to see if the sky is as clear tonight and try it again.



Taken again at 10-30pm.

Another good day but no coins!.
