Week 5 of 366 Challenge

Taking a photo daily and getting it posted to FB is quite challenging on some days when life takes over but, for better or for worse, here are Wk5’s efforts.

Fat Tuesday Umbrella Parade

Well, we do love to party – especially if we (they) can get dressed up for it.

A couple of years ago, Hastings added Mardi Gras to its list of annual celebrations – not just for one day – it lasts all week. The umbrella parade is a daytime event for which the children are encouraged to take part – as you can see, the adults love it 🙂

 

 

Miserable on the Marsh

Well, I can’t keep waiting for the sun to shine so… Here are some shots taken whilst out with the dog on the marsh – at least she loved it. And, we did save a sheep that had got itself wedged under some iron girders – I didn’t know they couldn’t move backwards. Luckier than the one we later came across that had been good pickings for the foxes and crows.

Grey January in Bottle Alley

What can you do when it’s so wet, windy and dark by 4pm? We have a little undercover promenade that was built in the 30s known as Bottle Alley as the walls were decorated with recycled broken bottles – and we think recycling is a modern concept – which is where I spent a quiet hour earlier in January.
