A suggestion of afternoon light (Wordless Wednesday)









The Future looks Bright (WPC: Future)

When a sunrise like this greeted us of a morning whilst we were away, it seemed to give the day just a little more oomph you could say!

Future is Bright

Yes, the future looked bright when beginning with such a glorious light. Quite fitting for this week’s Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge of… FUTURE!






Front Row to a New Day (OWPC: Bench)

This week’s word for Jennifer Nichole Wells’ One Word Photo Challenge is… Bench.

We are very fortunate at present as where we are currently staying whilst visiting my darling mother in Australia, on the dock attached to our apartment block, is a bench where one can sit to contemplate the day.

Bench - Front Row to the New Day

Master Fourteen, being the keen fisherman that he is, has already spent many an hour on that dock with either fishing line or fishing net in hand.

Personally, I prefer to simply take advantage of this bench in the early hours of the morning as the sun makes its way into the sky. This time of the day, no matter what the outlook, is always my favourite time of day.

Here however, the birds who have made the island to the left their home fill the air with their morning calls, whilst the migratory birds fly in waves across the sky. Yes, it is definitely the most glorious time of the day!







Morning Harmony (WPC: Harmony)

Last Saturday morning we needed to be up and going very early, something none of us were particularly happy about. However on looking outside our moods quickly changed.


On seeing the magical colours covering the sky, providing the beautiful backdrop for the vast assortment of dancing clouds, an immediate harmony descended upon the family.

Our destination was met on time with a good time being had by all. Plus this morning skyline provided a perfect capture for this week’s Daily Post Challenge Word of HARMONY.






Just another Full Moon Morning (Wordless Wednesday)

My Full Moon





Wish upon a Star!

It didn’t move so it wasn’t an aircraft or satellite. Perhaps a planet but which one? The last lingering star of the night is what I’m going to say as I’d like/want/need a star to wish upon.

Star Light Star Bright

You see, in under an hour’s time my darling Master Thirteen is going in for surgery to have his tonsils and adenoids removed.

Albeit minor surgery anything requiring anesthetic to completely knock you out is a worry to me. He on the other-hand is taking all this in his stride, and bless his cotton-socks, is still asleep!

Not me, my stomach is in knots, sooooo… star light, star bright, first star I see tonight, I wish I may, I wish I might, have this wish I wish tonight!

May all the stars be aligned with everything going according to plan this morning, but {gulp}… “mum, how much longer?”
