PICTURE THIS #208 - HOLIDAYS, VACATIONS, TRIPS by Marianne

Hello, Good Morning all you beautiful people. I am sitting here in my dressing gown, freezing my butt of on a very cold winter morning on the Highveld. The sun is shining, as it is most days in the interior of South Africa. Blue blue skies, but a low of 2deg C this morning with a promise of a  high of 19deg C. There is a bit of a wind, so doubt we will get warm today.

Firstly congratulation Joanne for making the banner this week. It is a lovely shot of a beautiful old church and cemetery  One of my favourites from that popular theme you hosted this last week. 

I have been asked to host this week, with not a thought or idea of a theme in my silly befuddled brain. Have had such a busy week, as daughter dear has been helping me out with cold calling and canvassing for new clients. We desperately need more business  times are very bad here at the moment. Anyway enough of me and my private woes, better left for a blog or two. *smile*

As I have now dilly daddled enough, decided to let you all have a holiday and some fun. It is summer holidays on the northern globe and we have also had winter school closings here. I am sure you all have been out somewhere, to the cabin in the woods, the chalet by the sea or fishing in the lake. Maybe visiting relatives or having people over.

The theme is open 

HOLIDAYS, VACATIONS AND TRIPS


I will be back now now with my contributions, but feel free to start off with your entries, if you are awake.

    1. There is a first for everything, Mitch and you know how I love to be different .... *winks* ........and difficult.

      I will be back in a second with my photographs, simply wanted the post up quickly before I could change my mind yet again, what theme to choose. Sitting here with hundreds of nice photographs, cannot match a theme to it, we have not done already and sitting with hundreds of theme ideas but blank what photograph to use myself. .

      This way was fait accompli , no going back, no choice, it is done *grins*

    1. I doubt it's the theme, it's such an easy one. More likely just one of those weeks where several people are away or are too busy to take part. Unfortunately not everyone tells me if they are going to be unavailable on a particular week, so it's hard to say. There's always some drop-off in numbers during summer (in the northern hemisphere).
