FRIDAY'S HUNT and WEEKEND REFLECTIONS

These are the photographs for FRIDAY’S HUNT and WEEKEND REFLECTIONS.  The prompts are the  letter N ,Vintage and you can choose your own favourite today.   The vintage car was shot as I walked down the Esplanade at Cowes on the I.O.W and where I have just returned from.  All the others are when I went down to my old caravan to cut the grass on my return home.

Nose



These are shots I took as I walked from the caravan a short distance over the causeway to Sketrick Island where there is a great coffee shop and restaurant called Daft Eddy's.




Now you might wonder why I put this shot in?  Well this is a challenge for YOU!  It is taken as I sit at Daft Eddy’s and my caravan is in the shot however it is very hard to see.  I wonder can you see it? Clue - the door of the caravan is open and it is in a field all on its own behind a bungalow.  




OK,  since Sue from EC could not find the caravan, I have added another shot to help you find it. Another clue - look at bungalow just over RHS of island!


These Pale -bellied Brent geese surely will soon be leaving for their breeding grounds however it was lovely to see them looking so good before that trip.

Now do you have a favourite and did you find my old caravan?

Many thanks for your visit and also to all who leave comments.

  5. Margaret, you must have included your vintage car photo just for me. It raised my heart rate. This is an MG TC (1945-50) which came originally with a 1250cc OHV motor producing 54.5 bhp connected to a four speed manual transmission. It was quite sporty at the time, and is fast enough to keep up with traffic today, so long as it is kept off expressways. MG only produced 10,001 of these cars, so they are not common. Most of the production was imported into the U.S. making it the most common foreign car.

  7. Beautiful shots!

    I think I see your caravan. Is it parked in front of some trees? The larger tree is on the right and there is a grassy field behind the trees?

  11. Very interesting geese! And a gorgeous old MG! Around San Francisco, MG's like that one, TC's etc, were among the very first imported cars to be seen---aside from occasional Jag or RR. That was the early 50's.

    1. Well done. I have to say it was very difficult. I must take a closer shot but when I am on the road then you cannot se my caravan. A lovely spot, peaceful and quiet.

  16. Nice pictures, Margaret, my favorite here is the MG, followed by the cow which I think is an Aberdeen. We saw a lot of those up in Aberdeen, Scotland. We haven't been to the I.O.W. But did sail past it a couple of times out of Southampton. We finally made it to Wales last year to round out our U.K. visits over the last ten years. Made it to the I.O.M. In 2007. I'd recommend it if you haven't been. My ancestors came from there.

  17. I love the vintage MG, a quintessentially English name that will always remain British to me despite the Chinese ownership...what a lovely nose on the demure cow. 'N' can stand for 'nice bovine' too...

  18. Love the car and the water shots.

  19. The nose photo and resulting owner were awesome for the 'N' prompt this week.

  20. Love the nose shots! :) I've never been able to get a good one, as our cows are too curious as soon as they see the camera!

  21. I couldn't see the caravan :(....my favourite is the vintage MG...reminds me of my mum...her initials were MG and she used to tell me the car was named for her. She had a tiny little gold MG charm on her bracelet!
