What You See Is What You Get. This is a journal blog, an explore-blog, a bit of this and that blog. Sharing where the mood takes me. Perhaps it will take you too.

Me-Now-Views; Less Speak More Peek

Over at Frank and Ernie's place last week, they shared a wonderful train trip experience. It reminded me that I had not put anymore of my own train piccies up; now's as good a day as any!

This one is at the Skippy the Kangaroo and Koala park in Northern Sydney.

It was taken, like, 87 centuries ago; that is The Maestro (my niece) at 22 months - and now she's 22 years!!!

This is just a taster though... now for a heap of piccies from recent sojourns in East Anglia.

Prepare yourselves - first, glimpses of the OUTWARD JOURNEY.......

Remember to click for 'bigification'

First there was the ALLLLLLL ABOOOOARRRDDDD at Holt Station.  Then we had to have our tickets (which were a little less than $87) properly conductorised...

See the carriage we are in - all 'Potterish'!

We could see the North Sea and we passed through two stops on the way - plus workshops and sidings with lots of 'interesto engineero mysterios'

and we passed the train running the opposite route...

We dismounted at the Sherringham end.  More on this station next week!!!  (I took 165 shots that day alone........... fear not.  I shall restrict myself.  A little.)

What are you all sharing today?
