Big Bertha's on the Move

That's right my friend.  As you're reading this we are in
California.  Bertha will be parked at a campground
in Morro Bay for a week.  And we will be having some house
guest's on this trip.  My Daughter and SIL and Myles will be
flying in to join us.  So you know I am one
Happy Camper.

I was able to get my
SCAVENGER HUNT
done before we took off.  I must warn you there is a whole
lot of stretching going on with this week's photos.

So with out further ado

Here we go..




VACATION
How funny that the first word prompt is Vacation and
we are on vacation.  OK I must admit I am always on Vacation.
I am stretching this one a bit.  These ducks look so nice and calm,
its as if they are on Vacation..  See, I told you it was a stretch.
It just gets worst from here.



FOOD(S)
Apple is definitely a food.  Right.
Some of you might have seen this on Flickr.
I did this photo for my beyond class.



SOUND
Another stretch I know.
We all know the Sound a pig makes.
These are my sister's pigs.  
I just had to share them with you.
They are so darn cute.  



TEXTURE
I don't know what it is about this photo but I just love it.
I put a Texture on top of this photo. But I also love the texture
the Ocotillo gives in the background.



ANYTHING
Yeah...  I could do what ever photo I wanted so this isn't a stretch.
I had so much fun watching this little guy trying to scare this dove away
from the feeder.  Believe or not it worked.  After chirping and puffing his
feathers all up the dove finally flew away.  I can just image what he said
to the dove.
"Step away from the feeder and nobody gets hurt"
I am sure it was something like that.






I might not be on my computer much for the next week or so. 
I will be busy spoiling my grandson.  I promise to catch up with
you soon.  


Hugs~

Such cute piggies!!! They could have been texture too....look at that coarse hair! Love your picture of the apple! How'd you do that? I think you did an excellent job with the prompts! I thought they were a little on the difficult side myself!

Fabulous photo's and of course the ducks are on vacation! Love them, Linda, lucky you a week with your grandson! We have had another two days of rain this week. My rain barrels and all the things I can fill are full again after just emptying them this past week. Planted a beautiful border with red,white, and blue Vinca's today. Picked more tomatoes, a bell pepper and green beans on Friday! It is summer my friend! Hugs for your trip I am excited for you. Have a wonderful Memorial Day!
