Today Was Father's Day

19 Jun 2022 11:01PM   Views : 348 Unique : 202

Sue and I spent the day with daughter Hazel and family, starting off with the farmers' Market at Houghton Tower, near Preston. I was travelling light camera-wise, with just the Pentax K-3 II and SMC Pentax-DA 18-135mm ED AL [IF] DC WR lens, a good combination as the weather varied from sunny to moderate rain. Weather resistance is brilliant! I shot quite a few vegeatbles at the market, plenty to cover my five a day, but we'll look at those tomorrow.

We moved on to Worden Park in Leyland and then had our Geek Moment, where this Dad was quite excited to be on the miniature train. Well, you have to be don't you? The railway is run by volunteers and is free for a trip that lasts a good ten minutes or so, covering quite a bit of ground. It's free, but donations are welcome. The pictures are from the test runs made by the volunteers, plus an image from the train when we had our ride.

Now to the pictures.

Third from last, John, look of enjoyment on the adult face and " What's all the fuss about?" on the boys, made me smile.
I would have been as exited as you Smile
