    I'm posting to say thankyou to you all for your friendliness and your warm welcome to GardenStew! It's wonderful to have come across such a down to earth, funny and knowledgable bunch of people as yourselves. And you mentioned you love photos....? Thought I'd share with you just a little bit of my part of the world. :stew1:

    Thank you for the photographs Ophelia. The first two are fantastic but I have to admit the third one made me feel a little queasy. I pictured myself attempting to walk over that bridge and almost passed out with fear at the thought. :oops: Yes you've guessed it I have a problem with heights. :rolleyes: I'm a quivering jelly if I even stand on the second step of a ladder so can you imagine what I'd be like 40m up? :eek: :D :D

    I'm with you Eileen. I couldn't walk out on that bridge. I tried to cross one not that high when we visited my son at his university. If dr hadn't been there I might have been stuck in the middle. I had to close my eyes while he led me the rest of the way across.
    I do like the beach and the hiking pictures though.

    That beach has such pretty white sand with the beautiful blues of the water beyond. I wouldn't mind taking a hike with your boys, that looks like a pretty place.

    Oh my, put me in the catagory of 'not walking across that bridge' I bet those unbothered by heights had a gorgeous view tho.

    Great photos. Love the beach pic. The bridge would be OK (I think) IF I didn't look down. :rolleyes:

    I'd love to laze on that beach, and your bush looks very inviting too. But that tree top thing really scares me. :D I'm a big sissy.
