I have been busy these last few weeks putting the boat in good order, a few changes but mostly heavy maintenance items. Our bottoms are newly cleaned and painted so we are ready for the off.
Planning to do what I call “The Northern Loop”.
She wouldn’t sleep as a baby, boy did she keep me up at nights. I would always do the late night / early morning stint and you can imagine my joy when she dozed off.
Peace and quiet, tranquility, a moments rest, call it what you will but this picture on the left perhaps depicts my feelings best.
It’s hard to believe that she’s now in her twenties, was it really that long ago?
And that’s what I want from you, cherished colleagues, a picture that perhaps describes tranquility in your life.
It can be a special place in the garden, a room, a chair, a holiday destination or as in my case a ‘special occasion.’ (even a ‘rare moment’ perhaps )
As usual I’ll accept multiple entries from participants.
Closing date Saturday June 22nd, any time zone, anywhere in the world, I’ll do the judging on Sunday, have fun and good luck!
Red-nose: “I see that Big Ears is avoiding the show today.”
A dull, wet day today. This is looking south down the road through the woods – about half a kilometer to the lane.

….. in Pennsylvania in the 150th anniversary year of the Battle Of Gettysburg.
You would go on a tour of the battlefield. This the view from Little Round Top, the statue being of General Warren who first realised the strategic importance of the steep hill. Seeing the distances involved, and the famous landmarks of the battle; Cemetery Hill, Little Round Top, Seminary Ridge, etc. really brings home to you the enormity of the battle.
….. in Washington.
One of the first things tourists try to do is go to the top of the Washington Monument. On a clear day, the views from the top are stupendous.
Unfortunately, because of the earthquake in DC a couple of years ago, you cannot, but as you can see, the obelisk is under repair.
Sorry Comrade, but we refuse to move further to your right.
I prefer my Peking duck crispy – as do many residents of Hong Kong, I’m sure. Does this one have a death-wish, I wonder?
I probably see them every day and thought a picture would be a suitable entry for the current photo competition
