Tag Archives: Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge

Across the generations

I’ll be honest, I’ve been a bit absent lately, busy with other things – including celebrating Dad’s 90th birthday.

Here he is with his great-grandson when we went out for lunch on the day.


I took this candid photo on my phone: Dad and Rupert close together  as we sat in the open outside the restaurant celebrating this happy event.

How lucky for me that this brings together several challenges this week. I’m trying to catch up.

Happily Dazzled by this Group

We were happy to be able to go to the Edinburgh Military Tattoo where we were dazzled by the performances, including this colourful group.

Solitude on the highway

I’m combining Cee’s “Freeways, Expressways, Highways” and Hugh’s “Solitude” challenges this week.

The Burnett Highway in central Queensland can be very quite, making it a much nicer drive than the busy Bruce Highway. It’s much less stressful and I definitely prefer it, especially when I’m on my own as I was on the day I took this photo.

The view through the gap

At the end of our walk to Lake Reid in New Zealand’s beautiful South Island we sat for a while enjoying the view through the gap in the mountains.

We loved this area around Glenorchy and Kinloch and intended to go back. Little did we know that just 2 years later our son would be working in this area and we’d take this same walk again while visiting him.

Perhaps we’ll get back there again one day.

Sweet! Before and After

At Easter, Hugh has challenged us to be sweet. Some would say that really is a challenge for me 🙂

Here is a picture of one of the most delicious crème brûlées I think I’ve ever eaten … and the aftermath.

It was a cold and wet day on our first trip to New Zealand and we chose a random place for lunch – mainly because it was warm.

The main meal was nice but the lavender and honey crème brûlée, with the piece of shortbread and Turkish Delight was truly spectacular.

My mouth is watering at the memory.

Don’t worry – despite them still being in the “after” photo I did finish the shortbread and the Turkish Delight.
