Saturday wanderings

It wasn’t quite raining, and not too cold so we got the wellies out, packed the dog into the car, and armed with cameras headed for a local shipwreck.

We walked around the point at the waters edge and returned an hour later – right in time to miss a small but heavy rainfall.

Good morning Weekend

A little something while I get this weeks ‘weekly photo challenge’ organised. Have a great weekend.

The Pub…before Peppermint Bay

By the time I received these pictures I felt a sense of pressure to make sure I used them.  I had made a few queries as to where I might them (there was nothing on the web) and before I knew it, it felt like the whole of Woodbridge was looking for me.

Yesterday I did a post about Peppermint Bay and last year did the same, but I wanted to show you what used to be there.

A square brink two story building that appears to have been wiped form the history books considering how hard it was to find pictures.  If all else failed I could have asked the old owner – who originally built the new pub.  Now that would have put pressure on me.

What you see are photos of old photos so I apologise for the quality.
Once the pub was sold all items that were movable – and I mean everything -was auctioned off before the bricks and mortar was demolished.  I even know the guy who bought the front door to the pub, or the Bar door.  It was joked at the time that he used it more than anyone and so was his almost by default.  Apparently he has since stopped drinking. The wooden deck you see in the bottom picture now resides at my parents place. 



Happy Saturday 🙂

Have a great weekend 🙂

Rev heads paradise

It’s that time of year again.
Targa. (See last years post here)
We packed up the kids (+1 extra) and dog, (lordy I love him, he was so well behaved, sitting quietly and not phased at all by the cars) taking two cars to Woodbridge to see the start of the today’s time trials over Woodbridge Hill. Thankfully they started on time this year and we were out by 11.
I may love my muscle cars, but a Lamborghini never fails to impress.
I had moved to get a better perspective of the cars and got talking to an old dude. He commented on how big my camera battery was and we ended up discussing the pros and cons of the whole digital thing. It makes us lazy to an extent. We take less care with each picture as we can just delete what we don’t like, if you have a film you pay more attention to what you are doing as there are only so many pictures you can take. I told him I usually delete up to half the pictures I take for one reason or another (chopped off heads/scenery, missed the action, out of focus…..).
I took 85 photos, of which 24 were no good and deleted.
There are now 61 left, which includes one or two family shots. Which leaves me with decisions on which 10 or so to show you. Snap happy and wasteful maybe, the benefits of digital may have made me lazy, but I find I am more inclined to try new things, and play around if I know I can just delete the bad ones.










And just for fun…



(As I finish this post Mr 16 is letting out his inner rev head on the xbox… coincidence, I think not)

Have a racing good day 🙂
