Black & White

My attempts at black & white images.

Dog Mobile

This lovely dog, who I shall name ‘Henry the Basset Hound’, loves his owners small tractor, especially for all the trips around the shows they visit.  Well he does only have little legs 🙂

Taken at one of the many country shows we visited in 2106

Two Americans in Norfolk

 

The two Americans….. are my niece and her husband, we attended their wedding in 2015 in the US, and some of you might remember, I posted photos of their wedding.  They came to stay overnight in April 2016, they were doing the rounds, visiting relations and friends in the UK.  My daughter and family came to visit at the same time, and we went on a family day out.  I am so late in posting this, but better late, than never……. I hope anyway 🙂  We headed to the North Norfolk Coast, it’s a bit difficult to show off where you live in one day, but at least the weather was good to us.  We stopped at Burnham Market first, and had a look around a Norfolk Village, before it got busy.  Then we made our way to Wells-next-the-Sea and had a fish and chip dinner, and a go on the slot machines.

An April Bike Ride

 

Around the outskirts of Peterborough in Cambridgeshire, is great for bike riding.  Apart from the really good bike routes, the terrain is mostly flat.  We try and take the caravan to Ferry Meadows Caravan Park each April and have at least one twenty mile bike trip…..which in truth only happens once a year and this year it didn’t happen.  Although we did take the bikes all the way to Scotland this year, to ride on some of the Islands, but it rained so much, it just never happened, they didn’t come of the bike rack.  So while sorting through the endless amount of photos, I found last April’s bike ride, 2016 and as it was the only one we have managed to achieve in two years……I am going to post it, to remind myself how nice it is to ride a bike.  My husband pulls a cart on the back of his bike for the dogs, as little dogs tire after a few miles, and as we now have four dogs, its better for them to travel in style.  Hopefully the photos will show you a little of the lovely countryside around Peterborough.  We also stopped off at Ferry Meadows and Orton Mere stations to watch the steam train on the Nene Valley Railway.  Finally three little dogs, we had another dog just after our break, back to the van for a well earned drink.

 

Once Upon A Time……..

Once upon a time there was a young airman…… ha ha that’s all you get 🙂  I took this photo wondering if this gentleman had been an airman…..once upon a time.  

Taken on a visit, July 2017, to see the Shuttleworth Collection, at Old Warden Aerodrome, in Bedfordshire, where, there is a wonderful collection of vintage airplanes.  There are also vintage vehicles, and a beautiful garden, I will post about them all later.
