Back to Work….


Back to Work….

It is back to work after a long weekend….but for some there was no let up, jobs to do, places to BEE….and for the Bee’s and many other insects it bonanza time for nectar and pollen.  Late summer could be the last opportunity to stock up for the winter.

Flippant Friday …..A Tiger on the Fence

Tiger Tiger

Tiger, Tiger …..

We are told that Tigers are an endangered species……  somehow I don’t think this Tiger is in anyway endangered by the look he is giving Buster

(Oh, and Buster never spotted the Tiger)

Flippant Friday……… Going for a Paddle


High Water……

It is the holiday season, so if you are off to the Beach for a paddle in the sea, you best be prepared.  Do you know the time when high tide is due?

Thank fully this Guest House is thoughtful enough to care….
