Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Colourful Choice

We had a wonderful weekend, celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary. One of the highlights was a visit to Niagara on the Lake, Ontario. One of my favourite places to visit. I’m sure I’ll be sharing more about NotL since it’s full of Canadian history and we’re about to start a year long celebration for Canada’s 150th.

As we were walking toward the Shaw Theatre to pick up our tickets for the evenings performance of Alice in Wonderland this whimsical wind catcher caught my eye. It was fun and beautiful and I became ‘Curiouser and curiouser’. 

When I was playing with one of the photos I used the crystalline effect. I enjoyed the colour and the feel of the photo seems to match the unusual feel of Wonderland😉


Kindly take a moment to visit Lens and Pens by Sally to see what she and other challengers have shared this week.



Here’s a peek of the wind catcher / sculpture.

It’s found at the Shaw Club Hotel & Spa.

Sadly I didn’t see the artists name.

A few weeks ago we were cat sitting for my sister. Her cats love an occasional (supervised) outdoor adventure. The older cat goes to one corner of the yard and watches the fence. No doubt terrorising the local mice. The younger cat wanders everywhere. It’s fun to watch her. I’m always wondering what she is spying.




Kindly visit Lens & Pens by Sally to see what photos we can spy this week.


If we were having coffee .. distracted

If we were having coffee I’d be apologising. The kettle isn’t on. I meant to be ready for you and I even thought about what I wanted to chat about. Then

Then I read the news headlines. Barely a week after the 15th anniversary of 9/11 and bombs are exploded in New Jersey and New York City. I can’t imagine how they’re feeling right now. I know they’re strong and this certainly won’t keep them off their feet. Thankfully reports are of “just” injuries.

Sorry… what would you like to drink. There’s a fall chill to the air. Would you like something warm?

So, this week’s highlight…🙂 We went to the Drive In to see the movie Twister. I’ve always p18026_d_v8_aawanted to see it at the drive in. Years ago when it was first released my now husband and I were going to go see it at the Drive In but there was a storm that night and…yep a tornado went through the area damaging one of four screens. Yes, the one that Twister was scheduled to play on.

We love going to the Can-View Drive In, in Fonthill, Ontario. It’s the best way to watch movies. Our son brought a cot along. He set it up beside our van with some pillows and blankets. What more could you ask for? Stars on the screen while under the stars in the sky.

The really fun part of watching Twister at the Drive In? Yes, the drive in scene is more intense but at the end where the F5 is chasing them; the wind picked up as that scene started. It was like those 4D movies where the seats move or they spray you with water.

Other than that life is settling back into a routine. Which makes me feel content.  Not much to chat about here. What’s happening on your side of the screen?


Thank you to for hosting the Coffee Share.
