Pull Up A Seat Photo Challenge: Two ‘Throw-backs’.

I decided to take part in XingfuMama’s photo challenge this week. All you need to do is post photos of objects one can sit upon.

Here’s a ‘throw-back’ from 1998, snapped by our son Jeff. Hubby and I were resting on a bench in a rainy Central Park before leaving for the airport on our way back to South Africa. I really loved that flowery umbrella and wish I knew where it eventually disappeared to.


Another memory from 6 years ago when our granddaughter Sienna was visiting us with her dad in Johannesburg. In our local shopping mall we came upon this rather flashily-dressed cow reading the Daily Mooews.


Wishing you all a great week ahead. To take part in this challenge, go to https://xingfumama.blog/pull-up-a-seat/








Cee’s B&W Photo Challenge: Isolated Objects

Here’s a gorgeous tri-coloured heron in monochrome for this week’s ‘Cee’s B&W Photo Challenge‘. Still so beautiful and and even more elegant without the colour.




Sightings from the Old Key Lime House Loo-vre

Lunchtime on Valentine’s day found hubby and I once again at the Old Key Lime House restaurant.


We really love the casual vibe here


and also the splendid view over the Intracoastal Waterway.


A trip to the ‘loo’ on our way out, meant that I could once again peruse the art gallery and words of wisdom to be found there.


This cartoon made me smile, somewhat wryly. We’ve all been there.


Should the men’s be fully occupied, there’s always this.


I love this street artist’s impression of his demure subject.


I’ve posted this chorus line before. but maybe you missed it.


Last but(t) not least, a ‘Follow your heart’ image for Valentine’s Day.


Hope you’re all having a fun weekend.



Cee’s FFC: Color Of Your Choice

My colour of choice for this Valentine’s Day is of course ‘Red’.

A handsome Red Cardinal showing off his Valentine outfit.


Anatole the backyard Anole lizard, displaying his red dewlap which is meant to lure in females during the mating season.


Beautiful, romantic sunset seen from Sunset Beach Hawaii.


From the sublime to the ridiculous:

Horns in Wyoming

A few years ago we stayed in Jackson Hole on our way to Yellowstone National Park. In Jackson town centre is the George Washington Memorial Park which has four archways built entirely out of elk antlers. There are approximately 2,000 antlers to each arch.


On our travels through Yellowstone we saw many bison, the largest land mammal in North America. The males can weigh anything up to 2,000 pounds and females about 1,000 pounds. They can run up to 35 miles an hour, so it’s best not to have a race with one, as they can quickly pivot and suddenly be turning to face you.


These bison are pure descendants of the vast herds which once roamed the grasslands of the United States and the largest bison population is to be found in Yellowstone, where they have lived continuously since prehistoric times.


For the sake of safety, these photos were taken through the open car window.

Happy Sunday everyone.
