Day 361 – Nothing but sunshine.


 
Happy Easter everybody, and hope the Easter bunny was good to you today?  For a change at Easter, the sun is putting on a brilliant show in the tropics.  Normally rain comes and plays but this Easter it has stayed away.  The temperature is beautiful and great time to be outdoors in the wide open spaces.  Hello sunshine and tropical Easter it’s nice to be here. 

Day 360 – Not many calories?


 
A friend posted a salty caramel Easter egg rocky road.  For the love of cooking it wasn’t a question of would I make it, but when.  Easter bunny gathered all the chocolate, caramel eggs, marshmallows, brazil nuts, cranberries, pistachio nuts and put it all together, with pinch of salt on top hence the salty caramel.   So wondering if Easter is like Christmas and calories don’t count?  Or I’ll just stay in my dream world (for next two days) pretending to myself it contains 3 food groups; dairy, fruit, protein, so got to be good for you.  :)  PS:  Recipe came from Not QuiteNigella Blog if you want to check it out, my added extra crushed pistachio nuts on top. :)

Day 359 - Good Friday.





  TGIF, and the start of a four day weekend.  It also means a very holy day on the Christian calendar.  Bare branches are giving way to new life on the trees outside the church.  Set alight by afternoon sun.   People sit inside and reflect what Easter means to them.  Whatever your beliefs on this day; travel safe if taking off, for a four day adventure, treat each other with kind words, actions, be thankful for loving family and friends that surround you.  Happy Easter everybody.

Day 358 – Stoney Creek Falls.





 On the eve of Easter everybody is running around getting supplies and heading off for four day weekend.  Yahoo.  Camping is a very popular pastime of Easter getting away from the hustle and bustle of the cities, heading out into nature.   Recent rain has the waterfalls running and creeks a little above a trickle.  The rain may still be hanging around the mountains yet hope whatever you have planned over the break; have fun, travel safe, hope Easter Bunny finds you? :)

Day 357 – Pumping.




 Riding in the tube of life, red blood cells travel around the body giving life of oxygen all over and removing the waste.  Without its function we would slowly die.  The wonderful thing about blood is that it doesn’t matter what the package is on the outside, we all have the same inside.  Red blood cells pumps along everyone’s highway of life regardless of who you are or where you are from?  Kind of neat when you think about it.

Day 356 - Full Moon Rising.



  
 Full moon is one of those magic things that fascinate me.  384,400km from earth.  The moon is actually not a planet but Earth’s satellite.  59% of the moon is only ever seen by earth and the dark patches are craters filled with basalt.  If you want to improve your golf game perhaps book a flight to the moon in the future.  Astronaut Alan Sheppard hit a golf ball when Apollo touched down on the moon’s surface and the ball went 730m.  Might be a short golf game, but an amazing one. :)

Day 355 – Phoenix.


 
 Only 10 days left in Year through the Lens, and that will be another year complete.  A photo every day, taken wherever I’ve been in the last 12 months.  So can’t help but squeeze another one in of my special four legged friend.  Who I’m sure if could speak human words would never be quiet.  Plus tell me are we done yet?  He is a very patient model.  With quite funny ways; big 12 year old this year in June.  So in the four legged & our world, every day is a cherished one. :)
