Goodbye 2019…

As the end of 2019 draws ever closer it is time to look back on the year we have just had and in particular the 5 and a little months that I have been blogging. I am mainly going to do this through photographs for the Lens Artist Challenge #77 which is favourite photos of 2019. It is lovely looking back to see the fun and adventures that we have had.

In January Mr H and I visited Liverpool Cathedral while waiting for Mr Hs car to have its MOT at the Cathedral was the knife angel, this has to be my favourite photograph in January.

My next favourite photograph is from February is Charlie dog saying hello to some of the ducks in Botanic park in Churchtown. He just loves to walk through the aviary.

March’s photograph was from a trip to Hesketh Park I always love these steps.

My photograph for April is of Franks Bridge in Kirby Stephen. This was taken before meeting up with Mr Hs family.

My photograph for May is Mr H and Charlie dog when we visited RSPB Hesketh Out Marsh to take Charlie on a walk and see what wildlife we could see.

My photograph for June is a moorhen and chicks seen from our caravan window on a wet June day but they seemed to be happy.

In July we went on a guided walk on Ainsdale beach to the Star of Hope shipwreck this was a fascinating day and Mr H and I learnt a great deal of information from the guide who was extremely knowledgable. We saw the remnants of two shipwrecks and plenty of jellyfish.

When August arrived it was time for our only camping trip of the year. I love this picture as every time I left my sleeping bag Charlie dog decided it was his bed.

September brought us heritage days and although we didn’t do a lot of them this was one of my favourites. The reopening of the Mansion house in Calderstones Park in Liverpool and the relocation of the Calder stones that gave the park and an area in Liverpool its name.

Calder Stones shown prominently in their new home.

In October we went to Martin Mere just outside Burscough it had been a long time since I visited last and it was Mr Hs first time visiting. I love the unusual look of the Muscovy duck pictured below and it was the first time I had ever seen one of them.

November brought this fabulous sunset over the caravan. I couldn’t leave it out of my favourites.

December brought lights and these are my favourites. It is a fabulous light show all done to music. This was our second year visiting them and can’t wait for next years.

My look back on a fabulous 2019 and here’s hoping that 2020 brings even more adventures.
