Scavenger Photo Hunt – November 2020

I can’t believe that we are at the end November already the months just seem to keep on flying by, maybe it’s due to everything seeming to be the same every day (get up, go to work, come home, eat, sleep and then repeat all over again). But on the brighter side that means it’s time for this month’s photographs for Kates I Live, I Love, I craft photo scavenger hunt. This one has been fun as some of the photographs are from the archives so I have been able to remember some fun times which has been great during this time of uncertainty.

The words for November are below, here is what we have found:

  • Houseplant/s
  • Rings
  • Harbour
  • Window
  • Sky
  • My own Choice

Houseplants

My photograph for house plants is a picture of the shoots from the lemon seeds that I potted during our first lockdown, some are still growing strong and have gone into bigger pots some sadly did not survive. It has been nice to see the growth from a seed to a small plant, I only wish that I had taken a picture every day to chart their growth (maybe next time I plant something that is what I will do)

Rings

The photograph I have chosen for rings is mine and Mr Hs wedding rings already in their box on our special day.

Harbour

My picture for harbour is definitely a throwback picture that brings back lots of lovely memories of mine and Mr Hs first holiday together to the Isle of Man. The picture is Douglas harbour and was taken one evening after a lovely dinner before going back to our hotel.

Window

This picture was actually taken this week through my window in work I just couldn’t resist taking it as the colour of the sky was fabulous.

Sky

Although my picture above could have also have been my sky picture I seem to have become obsessed with taking pictures of the sky recently. The colours at the moment seem to be fabulous and I have to say I am not sure if these colours are normal for the times of the year as I have never seemed to notice them being quite so vivid. Maybe in these unusual times, I am just being a little more observant.

Own Choice

My own choice picture is the view through an old railway tunnel. This was taken on a very recent walk we went on along an old railway line close to our house that has now been made into a cycle and walking path. I couldn’t resist this if not just to say that there is definitely light at the end of the tunnel.

I hope that you have enjoyed my photographs this month and I can’t wait for next set of words.

Vacations past

The topic for Nancy Merrill’s challenge this week is vacation memories.

Although each weekend we vist the caravan this does not always feel like it is a holiday but since being with Mr H we hhave been on some lovely holidays especially in the Lake District but this week I was reminded that our first holiday together was in the Isle of Man Below are some of the photographs from that holiday.

We have recently also had some great camping holidays one to Hawkshead in the Lake District and one in Kirkby Stephen. Below are some of the photographs from them.
