Antidote – Friendly Friday Photography Challenge – Blue

This Friday we are challenged with:

Interpret the word, ‘Blue,’ however you like and make a Friendly Friday post.

It is fair to say that I have had one of ‘those’ years! It has been hard, but there have been a lot of positives to come out of the struggles.  I have spent a lot of time feeling blue, however a trip here, both to the place in question and to blog, is always a pick me up!

Walk this way – Which Way Challenge: March 14, 2019

Each week sonofabeach96 challenges us with the following:

This Which Way challenge is all about capturing the roads, walks, trails, rails, steps, signs, etc. we move from one place to another on.  You can walk on them, climb them, drive them, ride on them, as long as the specific way is visible.  Any angle of a bridge is acceptable as are any signs.

So we visited Lynmouth this weekend and we walked this way.

Portreath: but not as we know it! – Friday Foto Fun – Ocean Views

For this weeks Friday Foto Fun we are asked to:

Post a photo or get creative about seaside scenes … try some humour!

This 5 photo stitch immediately came to mind,  we were having a trip to Portreath, a reminder of memories of holidays long gone for my wife, her brother and mother, and we would be meeting one of here cousins there.  It was early in the morning and we expected to find the beach quiet, and that we would be able to take a stroll along the sand.  Instead we found a RNLI sports event going on and had to be content to take our view of the ocean from the cafe!

Stone whispering: Weekly Photo Challenge: Quest

Well this weeks challenge is Quest – Quest (noun): A long or arduous search for something.

Getting some of these to stand on end certainly took a long search for the point of balance.

This shot was taken on a visit to the National Trust Colby garden in Pembrokeshire, where we took a lovely walk down to the beach at Amroth.
