Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: One

Here I am in Umhlanga South Africa, enjoying the ocean views, the sound of the crashing waves and of course, the daily sighting of my number one favourite lighthouse.

It’s good to be back here and to spend time with my one and only sister Yvonne. We’ve have some really fun outings together, involving lots of eating, chatter and laughter.

Pull Up A Seat And Relax

It’s time once again for XingfuMama’s ‘Pull Up A Seat Challenge’.

Here are a few images of relaxing places to sit a while.

Cats have purr-fected the art of relaxing, and Ravioli who rules my daughter’s house in Johannesburg, is no exception.

This Siamese had commandeered a comfortable place to spend the afternoon.

Watching the waves is a very relaxing sport and one which I’m hoping to do a lot of whilst in South Africa.

Sitting watching the sun set over Montego Bay is a very fond memory for me.

I’m so looking forward to seeing my Mom-in-law in England next week. She’s not looking too bad for almost 106.

Pull Up A Seat At The Garden Centre

XingfuMama’s ‘Pull Up A Seat’ challenge showcases many places one can sit and rest one’s self either comfortably or sometimes not so comfortably, as is the case with this one I found at my sister’s local garden centre in South Africa.

Just around the corner, was this cute couple all snuggled up on a tiny bench in the shade.

My Sunday Photo: Lighthouse Memories

My sister’s painting of the Umhlanga lighthouse, which she did for my birthday a few of years ago,  has survived the trip over from South Africa, and it’s so nice to see it again. I have such great memories of living there, right next to the beach.

Hope you’re all having a great Sunday. Mine can be summed up in two words, “Packing Boxes.” We’re going to the Super Bowl dinner at the club tonight, so that will be a most enjoyable end to the busy day.

WPC Alphabet: Smokers’ Arch

In my South African seaside town of Umhlanga Rocks, an arch has been erected in the main street. It stands between the ‘Europa’ and the ‘George’, the two most popular ‘watering holes’ which are both open to the street. Complete with large ashtrays, it’s meant to stop the littering of the sidewalks with cigarette butts.

Last time I was there, the arch was deserted and the street was still awash with cigarette butts. I think some people really need to learn their Alphabet.

I’m using one of the new 2016 WPC badges, designed by The Cardinal. There are a few lovely ones to choose from, but of course I chose the bird.

Wordless Wednesday: Any Old Iron

This mini junkyard at the Piggly Wiggly Country Village in South Africa, reminded me of that old Harry Champion song, ‘Any Old Iron’ which was often playing on the radio when I was a child. This bicycle looks as old as the song. I just realised that this photo fits Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge ‘Metal and Wood’, so am linking it to that too.
