Excuse me? (WPC – Pedestrian)

The rules don’t apply so much when you’re young. You like to think you go where you want, when you want. Especially when you want the best seat in the house for the view. There are no consequences to your actions… until of course, there are!

Thanks to this little rebel, hubby is now going to have to re-roof our “summer-house” (and I use this term VERY loosely) sooner rather than later as we now have little hoof-holes like stars in the night sky allowing us unhindered water views.

Pedestrian is the Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge for this week.





Out my car window (WPC – Windows)

If you have to stop for road works over the summer, how nice is it to be able to look out the car window to this “arrangement” of blooms in the grass just off the road beside the car.

Windows is the Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge for this week.











Waiting in the Wind (WPC : Waiting)

It became quite the waiting game over the summer to see how many days this withering flower and leaf caught in a spider’s web would last out on our deck. It lasted long enough for me to forget!

Waiting is this week’s Daily Post’s Weekly Photo  Challenge.







Going with the flow when traveling! (WPC – Delta)

We arrived at the Oazarazate airport at midnight where a car from our kasbah was to meet us. After 20 minutes with the airport all but deserted we rang to check on its whereabouts. They’d forgotten us, they’d be there in an hour!

Into the back of this tiny car with doors only opening from the outside, went our hand-luggage, two children and I with hubby sitting up front and off we went. Into the blackness of the night we drove and drove, leaving any signs of light far behind.

Despite the rough terrain under us convincing me this was our last moments together as a family we arrived at what was to be our beautiful two-storey home for the next week. Emotions changing from final good-byes to pure elation in a heart-beat.

A few days later we discovered all the bumping was from the dry river bed we had crossed. We did ask what happened when it rained however the only response was laughter. Guess there’s never enough rain to make any great change.

What I love most about this river-bed road is how the way to not only our kasbah but a small village before it, is marked simply with white arrows on the rocks. Oh. My. Goodness.

This week’s photo challenge prompt from The Daily Post is much like last week’s prompt of Transient, it’s Delta. The challenge being to share a photo that signifies transitions and change to you.








Focusing on Paris! (WPC – Focus)

Towards the end of our first visit to Paris, both children were bought a souvenir camera that contained images of sights we’d already visited or were about to visit. The children were more than delighted with the photos contained within.

How funny was it though whilst still traveling through Paris, Miss Almost-Three held up her toy to “film Paris“. She was so focused on her filming that at no point did she realize what was outside the window wasn’t what was within her camera!

Focus is the Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge for this week.







Swooping for Salmon! (WPC: Evanescent)

Blink and you could possibly miss that moment when an eagle swoops down, talons reaching into the water to secure whatever it spotted within its claws. It’s a very hit and miss moment – for both the eagle and the photographer, lol!

Evanescent is the Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge for this week. The description for evanescent from the Daily Post is soon passing out of sight, memory, or existence; quickly fading or disappearing.






Dangerously Close (WPC: Danger)

Looking down from our cruise ship as we passed through each of the three locks along the Panama Canal, you couldn’t help but hold your breath on seeing what a narrow fit our ship was. It appeared dangerously close.

Danger! is The Daily Post Photo Challenge for this week.





Standing within the Grand Canyon (WPC: Wanderlust)

When booking our helicopter flight, complete with a champagne lunch within the canyon itself, I’m not sure exactly what I was expecting but I know I wasn’t expecting to be so awe-struck with the Grand Canyon.

The size, the unique beauty. There was so much to see, so much to experience. Wanderlust has led me to so many fabulous places in the world and will lead me to those places yet to be seen!

Wanderlust is the Weekly Photo Challenge from the Daily Post this week.






Gift wrapped Earth (WPC: Earth)

One of my favourite visions of the world is when it’s covered in a blanket of snow. As the wrapping slowly melts, it reveals the wonderful gift beneath of the earth and all her beauty.

This was the corner of our backyard only last month. A tranquil sight of a reasonably thick covering of snow over the earth combined with the morning light filtering through the branches.

Earth is The Daily Post Photo Challenge for this week.




Sunset Surprise (WPC: Surprise)

What a glorious surprise it was last year to look out the window to not only see this beautiful sunset but to also witness the silhouette of this unique boat paddling past.

Surprise is the photo challenge this week from the Daily Post.
