These two pictures represent a weekend away from my family. A weekend in which I met online strangers. A weekend in which I found entertainment and friendship in equal measure.
The venue was PortAventura in Spain where I had been sent along with a bunch other other rag tag British bloggers.
We were all strangers when we met but we parted friends. Good friends. The sort of friends it sometimes takes a lifetime to find
The first picture is of an amazing Polynesian show at the park in which Maoris put on a display of their traditional dance and it really was quite breathtaking.
The second picture was later that evening when we found ourselves in the bar (imagine that! A bunch of mums in the bar ordering cocktails. The Spanish were not impressed).
The mums in question were Laura (Are We Nearly There Yet Mummy), Erica (Little Mummy), Jo Bo (Jo Beaufoix), Alice (Dulwich Divorcee) and myself.
Have a guess who was the classy one who opted for a glass of wine and not a trashy, Crayola-coloured cocktail . . .
** Look at that, we’re on week 3 of The Gallery already!
I launched this new feature to showcase all the amazing photographs I see dotted around the blogs I visit. To create an online art gallery of all your work.
And this week’s theme is colour.
Are you joining in this week? At the foot of this post you will find a widget to add the URL to your own Gallery post.
The aim is to get as many of your photographs viewed by others, so if you do have the time, make sure you try and visit some of the other entries – even if it’s only a couple – and let them know what you think.
And if you’ve missed this week’s prompt, no problem as there will be a new one on Friday.
I can’t wait to see what you come up with.
