Home again – part 1 – into the bush!

Posted on July 29, 2017 by Sioux under General

  I arrived back in SA in the early afternoon and my eldest daughter fetched me from the airport. My two grandchildren were wide eyed with surprise when they saw me and I got loads of hugs and cuddles! I needed loads of those!   I had a week planned at Golden Gate National Reserve […]

Playtime at the funfair and conquering the frontiers of space!

Posted on July 26, 2017 by Sioux under General

  We visited the Magic Festival Village funfair but were very early and nothing much had opened yet, so my grandson had his choice of fun rides to go on. There were some really fun things for him to do!   All the walkways were decorated – some with leaves, others with lampshades, all very […]

Out and about in Doha

Posted on July 23, 2017 by Sioux under General

  I had long wanted to see the mangrove swamps but the area was flooded after recent heavy rains and we got no further than the entrance road way! The water was very murky and mucky looking, so we headed for Al Khor Park. One of Qatar’s largest and oldest parks, it covers an area […]

Free time + camera = travel!

Posted on July 21, 2017 by Sioux under Upcoming Trips

  With almost 3 weeks break in-between jobs, it’s time to explore, so I’m heading to Bath and Chelmsford.   First stop is Bath, a town known for its natural hot springs and 18th-century Georgian architecture. Honey-coloured Bath stone has been used extensively in the town’s architecture, including Bath Abbey, which has some stunning stained-glass […]

Balmy days and desert nights

  My first holiday home after a year started with a week in Qatar with my 2nd eldest daughter and her family. My grandson didn’t know when I was arriving and I got huge hugs and cuddles when he saw me!   Qatar was at the end of their winter season but the heat was […]

Busy bee, holiday time

Posted on July 17, 2017 by Sioux under General

  From Broadstairs I headed back to my base in Tonbridge for a few days before I was supposed to go onto one last job and then my holiday home to South Africa – I had been away for a year and was really looking forward to seeing loved ones and friends.    Unfortunately it […]

Living la vida loca…..

Posted on July 14, 2017 by Sioux under General

  The day after the photo course, my niece and I went for a walkabout in Margate and Ramsgate. The weather was fantastic and I hadn’t been to Margate and had only seen a bit of Ramsgate, so camera in hand; off we went for the day. Margate is a seaside resort town within the […]

School’s out – let’s go play!

Posted on July 11, 2017 by Sioux under General

    I had a full week’s break between jobs and decided to go back-to-basics and do something I have never done – a photography course. The info I gained was well worth the time and money, as there were still areas of photography I was battling with.               […]

In an English country garden….

Posted on July 9, 2017 by Sioux under Green Door

  Heading to pastures new. The first job after my SA holiday and UK friend’s wedding was a return assignment, so no door and window-view photo, however my next assignment has me in Wiltshire, east of Bath, and what a window-view it is!! The house is lovely, as is the client; and the surrounding area […]

Snake with no bite…..

Posted on July 8, 2017 by Sioux under General

  Back at another regular client, and the weather was miserable so I spent a lot of time chilling indoors and catching up on sorting photos, and posting blogs. Fetching the milk in one morning, I thought I saw a snake in her garden and panicked, as the skin looked rather “adder’ish” and there are […]
