Another day out!

Yesterday it was a day in Godmanchester. I took these photos over "The Rec" park. Matthew and I spent two hours over there taking photos. Matthew took over 200 on his little camera! He has good eye to see what makes a good photo, so maybe next Christmas a better camera for him. 
After the park it was back to dads for a lovely pork chop roast dinner, yum as usual.
A photo of one of the many weeping willow trees.
Matthew sitting under the tree waiting for the ducks.
I wouldn't mind this being my back garden!
Then of course you need the odd boat or two.

The Causeway.

One of two little bridges leading over to the locks.
Hi Matthew!

The Chinese Bridge with St Mary's Church in the background.
Just a great looking tree in the churchyard.

A day out at Hinchingbrooke Park.

We had a lovely day out today at Hinchingbrooke Park. Justin had the day off today, and Matthew is on school holidays for this week.
It was a warm day but chilly too, lol, I can't describe it as anything else. Warm in the sun, chilly in the shade??
I used my Sigma zoom lens, which isn't too great. It was a cheap lens (still over £100 though!) and it doesn't like auto focus I found out today, so these are manually focused. We were out for nearly 3 hours! We went on our bikes, and I haven't ridden my bike for about 6 months... I had to walk part of the way. I'm so unfit! 
We took a small picnic as well, stopping off first time in the woods, and the second time by the lake to eat. It was a lovely day... back home and then Justin cooked a lovely roast chicken dinner, which he should have cooked yesterday!

Penny Black challenge, and Charisma Cardz!!

The challenge this week at Penny Black challenge blog (Charisma Cardz below this image)is to create a card with more than one PB image. So here’s my entry.
The girl, the sentiment, and the robin, are not Penny Black stamps, but the two snowman, the lamp post, and the trees are from the Jolly Folly Penny Black stamp set.
Coloured with ProMarkers, glittered with Stickles Stardust glitter.
The card below is for the Charisma Cardz challenge, although the top one could have been as well as it’s for a “more than one fold” challenge.
Anyhooo, here it is. Another Penny Black stamp, coloured with ProMarkers. Glittered with Stickles Stardust glitter.
