Fresh and Tasty for Ailsa’s Travel Theme.

Ailsa has invited us to get ‘Fresh’ this week, for her Travel Theme. These fresh cut flowers seemed to nicely fit the bill.

Of course, you might think it a bit odd if I didn’t include a few edible pics, so here are some fresh and tasty images. Let’s start with the healthiest ones.

Do you believe that saying,"An apple a day keeps the doctor away?"

Of course, life isn’t all about eating, is it? One needs some exercise too. These surfers were doing just great, but are having to tread water, because they are fresh out of waves.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my fresh images; a bit of healthy, a bit of not so healthy, and some exercise thrown in at the deep end.

Tempting Delights I can’t resist, for Ailsa’s Travel Theme

Mae West once said “I generally avoid temptation unless I can’t resist it,” and I guess that goes for most of us, so for Ailsa’s Travel Theme this week, I’m confessing to some of the things which cause me to stray from the straight and narrow.

A delicious Chai Latte is something I can never resist if it happens to be on the menu.

When in the USA, I find it almost impossible to pass a Starbucks around lunchtime, without popping in for a toasted Panini with mozzarella, roasted tomatoes and basil pesto.

Lemon cheesecake would always beckon to me from the dessert trolley,

and a refreshing Mojito on a hot summer’s day, never goes amiss.

The promise of a holiday at Bora Bora, complete with palm trees, ocean, and a hammock to laze in, is the ultimate temptation,

and even up in the hills of South Africa, without the palm trees and beach, a hammock would have to be tried out for size.

So, what do you find too tempting to resist? Do tell…… because Ailsa is just dying to know.
