Weekly Photo Challenge: Sea

The Weekly Photo Challenge for this week is sea.

NO!! Daily Post this is just not fair! This challenge is just rubbing it in … we were due to have our final family outing to the seaside today – enjoying what are, essentially, the last days of summer – but due to car problems … well, we haven’t gone! Instead, we will be going for a long walk to the Savill Garden in Windsor Great Park, followed by a picnic, then the walk home. I can’t complain about that at all, but I guess I’ll just have to raid the archives once again. And besides, what would a post about sea be without the beautiful Caribbean island of Puerto Rico …

Until next time …

Weekly Photo Challenge: From Above

The Weekly Photo Challenge for this week is from above. Well, for me, there is nothing more relaxing or more beautiful than being on a plane and looking out at the clouds below you. I could share hundreds of those pictures, but this one is a particular favourite, taken somewhere in the Bermuda Triangle, on our way to Puerto Rico …

Day #020

Today is a special day for me. Today marks 1 year since Chris proposed to me on that beautiful island of Culebra, Puerto Rico. A year has passed and we are just about ready to begin the application for my visa to move to America. I can’t wait to return to Puerto Rico, I fell in love with that island, as I’m sure you’ve realised by now! So, I’ll just share one picture for today …

Weekly Photo Challenge: Beyond

The Weekly Photo Challenge for this week is beyond.

This challenge could go in many different directions but I’ll keep this one to just 3 images …

Snow in Windsor, UK, Jan 2013

This first picture was taken earlier today, when the snow was falling hardest. For anyone in the south-east UK, I am sure you will agree we got more than we bargained for!! You can see our poor trees suffering just beyond the blizzard of snow.

The beautiful view, coming back to Carolina from Cayey, Puerto Rico, Jan 2012

This second picture (I think I’ve posted one quite similar before, but I hope it wasn’t the same one!) was taken on my trip to Puerto Rico. I love this shot so much, as it captures everything you could associate with a Caribbean island: the palm tree silhouette, the startlingly blue skies, the warm ocean visible in the distance, and the rolling lush green hills. I would give anything to return there in an instant!

Taking the mountainous route through Pennsylvania on our way to Ohio and ultimately Missouri, May 2012

And this final picture I think represents the meaning of beyond for me perfectly. What I absolutely love about the USA is, especially on a long drive (I’ve had my fair share!), there is always something to look at, or look for. There is always something around that bend, waiting just beyond your line of sight. When I finally get my driving licence (it’s 4 years late, but I will get there!), I cannot wait just to be out on the road, discovering.

Some of my favourites: A Meditative Journey With Saldage, Newbie Academic in a ‘Stan, Francine in Retirement, Slump’s Blog, What’s (in) the Picture?,  Alien Shores, Les Petits Pas de Juls, Polit-onomics & Travel, Nature in the Burbs, Wind Against Current.

Until next time …

Weekly Photo Challenge: My 2012 in Pictures

The Weekly Photo Challenge for this week is my 2012 in pictures.

Well, what a year it has been! I’m sure I’m not alone in saying that 2012 was an eventful year to say the least! It is the year that I decided to venture into the world of blogging, and Little British Pea was born. I know I haven’t been able to keep it up regularly, but towards the end of this year there were just so many things going on! I hope 2013 will settle down, though I doubt that very much! So, here is my year in 12 pictures …

Until next time …
