It is difficult to choose my all time favourites for the final weekly photo challenge but here are a few of the photos I treasure for various reasons; happy memories, lovely holidays, and just because… I hope you enjoy them.
The view from Wiseman’s Bridge towards Saundersfoot, Pembrokeshire, West Wales
The Azure Window on the island of Gozo, it fell into the sea following a storm last year. Feel privileged to have seen it.
This is the ship ‘Vasa’ – it sank on it’s maiden voyage in 1628, in the harbour in Stockholm, it was raised over 330 years later and is now in the Vasa Musuem in Stockholm.
Peonies, my most favourite flower
This pearl monument is sited at the entrance to the Dhow Harbour in Doha, Qatar.
These are some of the super ‘trees’ that form part of the Gardens by the Bay in Singapore.

This is a guide to the Creek Street area of Ketchikan in Alaska. Fascinating place with some interesting history. Married Man’s Trail led over the river and through the woods… but definitely not to grandma’s house!!

What a lovely welcome after a hard day shopping!!
There was no-one else around when I took this photo of a path onto South Beach. I walked for a while and sat on the beach, watching the birds wheeling and diving and the clouds floating by and thought it was just heavenly. I think of it still and remember the feeling of peace and solitude.
