Have a picnic or BBQ and relax with your friends & family

On Tuesday, the 30th of December 2014 we met Tristan, Stephanie and their daughters Kianga (7) and Jakira (6) at the Blue Lotus Water Garden. They provided everything for a BBQ, such as sausages and salads. Martin had brought along some pieces of watermelon as well as a good selection of fresh berries, custard and cream.

We arrived early and waited near the entrance for our grandson Tristan and his family.

I soon found out I could quite well walk around the garden. But I used my walking stick since my left knee was still bit sore.

    We had a good time, didn’t we? We were four generations.

      It was absolutely super, even though it drizzled a bit from time to time. But maybe it was good that it did not get too hot.
      Thanks for commenting, Berlioz! πŸ™‚

    That looks like a great day out, in a beautiful place. Who cares about the drizzle? You get better colours on photos in the rain! And those are truly lovely waterlilies. Glad you could enjoy the outing and get to walk a bit, too.

      The walking was quite good for me, Cat, since everybody just strolled along, meaning I did not need to walk too fast and could take frequent rests. πŸ™‚

    You must have had a good time with family and in such lovely surroundings too. Great photos.

      It was lovely to see the family again, Gerard. The girls had grown a lot since we last saw them. πŸ™‚

    Hey! I understand this is somewhat off-topic however I had to ask.
    Does managing a well-established blog such as yours take a lot of work?

    I am brand new to blogging but I do write in my journal everyday.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can share my own experience and thoughts
    online. Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for brand new aspiring
    bloggers. Thankyou!

    • auntyuta January 18, 2015 at 8:21 am #

      Hello, Hubsa, my suggestion would be to use a lot of your journal writing for blogging. If you have pictures, that are suitable, your might want to add some of these.
      I am sure the Word.Press management people would like to help you with setting up your blog/. πŸ™‚
      Cherio,
      Aunty Uta
