Saturday Steps with Bridget

Bridget is joining me this week

 I know Bridget she's a peeps!! in fact mom's friend, she was quite happy to have her photo taken but said Mom could do the write up!!!  

"Ok Mom its over to you!!!"

“Thanks George, this is my friend Bridget we have known each other for over 15 years. We met through working together, and although I no longer work at the same place we still keep in touch.
Its because of Bridget I found my interest in taking photos. Both of us love to have a day out when possible, not to go shopping but to visit gardens or country house’s, stop for a coffee and the biggest piece of cake we can find, to catch up on things and enjoy taking photos.
It was Bridget that came with me and George on his Birthday outing to the water fall, and also took the photos for my interview with Coffee with a canine. She’s the only person I trust to take a half descent photo of me, as I hate having my photo taken.
I would have loved to have taken George and Tess to Powis Castle as its a National Trust property and we are members, but they don’t allow dogs in, “sorry George will take you and Tess somewhere soon”
I’ll leave you with some more photos taken on the day” 

"Thanks Bridget for joining me this week,
 and to Mom for the write up"

You can always join me on Saturday Steps, just send in a photo of yourself on Steps plus a little about yourself and email me at
I will return an email telling you which week you will be here with me.

My pesky sister will be here later in the week
 with up to date news in
The Tess

Have a good weekend
See You Soon George xxx

Those are just fantastic, magnificent photos of Powis Castle, and how lovely to meet your friend Bridget. We all have reason to be grateful to her for prompting your interest in photography.
Cheers! Gail.
PS Bertie is sulking because dogs are not allowed at that castle, so I had to write this today.

My most precious friends both human and canine,

This is a very special post. The wonder of your country and view of life has set me up with much joy as I sit here on this most lovely of spring days. It is raining, but that is OK, for from tears come life and from rain comes hope of beauty. TESSY DEAR, how do you feel about not being able to amble through those GORGEOUS GARDENS????George mi man, are you watching your little sister? BE GOOD YOU TOO! Oh Jan, those photos are wonderfully shot. LOVE THAT WAVY HEDGE!!!!! Anita

What a beautiful place and those pictures are awesome! I always enjoyed visiting those National Trust properties as they do keep many beautiful castles and buildings when I was in the UK. The scenery there is magnificient too.

Will you be going to the Yorkshire Dales? That's my favorite! Can I go too? lol

Wyatt said...

Pawesome pictures of a pawesome place! We are still dizzy, thinking about trimming all those hedges and topiaries! Can you imagine?


P.S. Kisses to you both, Stanzie has been flirting with the Airedale Boys, but it's not serious, George!

Outstanding, loved all the photos, shame about George & Tess being banned, do they not know who they are ?! It looks like I won't be able to go here as there is a severe risk that I may copy some of your material :-)
