Making and recollecting – One word Sunday Challenge: Memory

This week Debbie has challenged us with the following:

Welcome to One Word Sunday. Now, over to all of you to share a memory for this theme. Share an image or some words, or even some music – allcomers welcome.

Well I have shared two pictures of this space in previous posts this weekend, so no reason to change that pattern!  The below is a 3 photo stitch of the Druids circle in Penmaenmawr.

This day will, or perhaps I should correct that to has already become a memory, a two day old memory, but already a memory.  It is now filed under the day we visited number 49 of 50.

The previous time I was here was with friends when we were spending a week long holiday in Snowdonia, very happy memories, vibrant energised days, walking, talking, eating and drinking, some 16 years ago I think.

And the first time I came here was 20, now nearly 21 years ago.  How had I not know this circle was there!  I had lived most of my life nearby at that point.  A friend that now lives the other side of the world took me to visit it, my memories of our friendship are full of joy.

House of Mirrors? – One word Sunday Challenge: Dazzle

This week Debbie has challenged us with the following:

Welcome to One Word Sunday. Now, over to all of you to dazzle me with your image for this theme.

So a photo taken on Lake Windermere, while the reflected sun was not quite enough to dazzle so much that I could not look, or take a photo, I feel it still fits the bill.

Hanging – One word Sunday Challenge – Vertical

This week Debbie has challenged us with the following:

Welcome to One Word Sunday, and over to all of you to join the challenge with your own vertical post.

A photo taken at Fyne Court, small logs suspended vertically from a cross beam by wire.  It is a bit like a vertical wooden xylophone, as the thin logs are cut to different lengths, and there are ‘beaters’ provided should you wish to interact with the item using more than sight.

Moor lines – One word Sunday Challenge – Row

This week Debbie has challenged us with the following:

Welcome to One Word Sunday, and over to all of you to join the challenge with your own row post.

I thought I would use another ancient monument this week, no surprises there I hear some of you shout!  I don’t think I have used this location for a challenge before though, and it seemed very fitting for this one.

On Dartmoor there are many stone rows, this one is part of the ‘Merrivale complex‘ of ancient sites.  It is a double row, for an added bonus for this weeks challenge I feel.
