Well, I don’t like posting family photos publicly, and this is essentially a travel blog after all, so my family photos are of my favourite wild animal, Elephants. We all know from the many wildlife programs that they display complex social and emotional behaviour and are said to value their families more than most animals.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Beginning

Cheri’s first post of the year is about  Beginning.  She wants to see what we see through our lenses.

Snowdrops are usually the first flowers to raise their heads above the frozen ground, so it is an obvious choice for me to choose the common snowdrop or Galanthus nivalis.

My Year in Photos – 2013

2013 has been an unusual year for me in that I have not left the shores of the UK once! That doesn’t mean that I have stayed at home all year – no I have travelled to the south-east, the south-west, right across the Midlands to the east coast and to the west into Wales. The only direction I haven’t been in this year is North! And in between all this to-ing and fro-ing I even managed to have a few local trips, all of which have made me grateful that I have my health to enjoy such travels.

So here are some of my favourite memories of this year, enjoy them  and I wish a Happy New Year to all my WordPress blogging friends 😀

This post links well with a couple of the end of year challenges, notably Sue’s ‘A Word in Your Ear’  Reflect,  and the Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge showing Joy.
