Barry’s Favourite 50 Images from 2015 – Part 1

It’s been a very long time since I’ve written and posted on this blog, generally I leave it in Sandra’s capable hands …

However I wanted to select and post some images I took during our 2015 cruising season. Some of these have previously appeared on the blog, but many haven’t; so it’s an opportunity to put a few of my personal favourites together.

The first series takes us from Worcester (our winter mooring) up to Middlewich, then back again to Droitwich and up the flight to Tardebigge.

I’m better at face-to-face communication and capturing pictures to tell stories, than writing, so I’ll let the images talk to you …

The first 10 favourite images of 2015

I hope you’ve enjoyed part 1 – hopefully I’ll get the next four parts posted before Christmas (Sandra will nudge me if I don’t I’m sure!)

    • Hi Phil, I have taken the same photo from the same angle everytime I’ve passed there. I’ll get it perfect one day! Hope all is good there in Gissie. Seems to be working out alright here at the marina. Have had a homebrew introduction night and a photography night so far, and had a good weekend trading so it could work out well1 Nice little frost this morning, so winter’s on it’s way.

      • All good here Barry. Quiz night tonight as usual. You will be very interested in the new Sunshine Brewery on Awapuni Road with their bar area serving a variety of their brews (often up to 9 different ones) with platters. Check it out online if you haven’t already, it’s very popular.
