Visit to Bournemouth

 

A few weeks ago we went to stay with my brother in Bournemouth on the South coast.  We had a lovely time the weather was better than expected and we had several days out.

Zena never leave home with out a bag of food for any wild life that we may meet, and I think they sense this as we have all sorts of creatures come and greet us including this beautiful peacock who followed us constantly hoping for food.

He continued to dance around us until we convinced him the food was all gone.  these pictures were taken on a trip to Brownsea Island also on the island is a colony of red squirrels a treat to see in the south of England as they have mainly been replaced by gray ones, we were told by the guide we would be lucky to see any at this Bournemouth with B & Z 2008 031cropped time of the year but sure enough a couple showed them selves I did not get great pictures but I will share them with you as I was so pleased to see them. Brownsea Island is a nature reserve but also well known for being the location of the very first Boy Scout camp, founded and instigated by Lord Baden Powell

We also had a trip to the New Forest there were lots of new born poniesBournemouth with B & Z 2008 218

This is one of my favorites shots, but it is hard to choose and there were so many wonderful mothers with their babies

showing such affection and some who couldn’t find mummy at all

don’t worry mum was not far away.

While we were there the family got together for a Bar-b-q, and although I rarely publish family pictures I thought this was worth showing you

this is Nicola my niece and and you can see the wonderful array of food she prepared for us and the meat beautifully cooked by her husband Dave

Lastly I must show you a little experiment!

Christchurch to Mudeford panorama

This is my first attempt at a panorama picture, it was taken from Hengisbury Head and shows Christchurch on the left side right across the harbor to Mudeford sand bank on the right it is made up of 5 pictures, it is too small to display effectively here as it covers a large area, again this is a nature reserve we walked as far as the sandbank and had a cup of tea and walked back, whilst the guys were playing golf!

    Also, good to see you enjoying life.
    love and hugs

    Hi Suki:
    It’s really good to see you back, also.  I’ve missed your gorgeous pictures and your wonderful tales of all the adventures you go on.  You seem so much younger than your years….how do you do it??
    I looked at the Spanish Holiday pictures in your photo album and, as usual, they were fabulous.  The one of the two men laying in the horse carriage could probably fetch a pretty penny from a magazine.
    I would love to visit that animal sanctuary, since I’m a huge animal-lover.  I’m just like Zena….I never go to the park without a bag of peanuts and a bag of bird seed.  We have mostly gray squirrels here too, but once in awhile, we still see the odd red one.  I love the way they come running when I make a little kissing sound.
    I’m very happy to hear your info on the very first Boy Scout camp ever founded by Baden Powell himself, was on Brownsea Island in England.  All other info I’ve read on the subject has said that the Boy Scouts were founded in the USA and I just knew that it was in England.
    I think it’s amazing the way you captured the family at the table in your niece’s sunglasses….very inventive and your panoramic picture just blows me away.  The way you have taken five pictures and made them into one….you are becoming a very exceptional photographer!!
    After seeing all this, I can well imagine why you’ve been absent for awhile…..it’s good to have you back.
    Huggies,
    Diane

    Cherno exits the garden with head down, tail errect and wagging, searching for the redheads spoor.

    The panorama turned out great.  I have not tried that yet.  The picture with the pics in the sunglasses was a 10 for sure.  A real classic.  Loved all your photos….

  7. Kuskulana says:

    Hi Suki;
    Thank you for sharing another lovely outing.
    That photo of Nicola is really something, besides being a great portrait of a pretty lady the reflections in her glasses could not have been planned any better!
    Panoramas just don’t show their full effect on a computer screen for sure, 5 frames is quite alot to accomplish, this would make a great print.

    Hi Suki,
    Thanks for the visit and I do apologise for taking so long in replying. Your Spain pics are lovely as is the snippet on the meander through the nature reserve. The picture of your niece with the food display in her sunglasses provided a good chuckle.
    Take care Suki, chat soon.

    Hi Suki,
    The pictures of Spain are lovely…..as are your floral shots.  Well done.  Our summer is going well.  I am pleased with the garden.  The rain has kept it nicely moist but detracts from being outside in the sun.  Hopefully early August will bring some nice weather.  Enjoy yourself.   Bittersweet from across the pond.

    Morning Suki. Great set of pictures to accompany the blog, as usual.
    The pano…….well done; something I’ve not tried yet.
    Sunglasses reflection…..as others have already said, very good.
    The reds……….brings back memories; not seen any of these since I was a kid.
    Certainly looks a great place to visit, especially after tempting us with those pictures.
    Have a great weekend  xx
