Who's Snapping Who?

By SlowSong
Cheek! No, I think she'd just snapped some weeds and was trying to show her hubs, who obviously only had eyes for me. Grin Had a lovely day out yesterday at Heybridge Basin, near Maldon in Essex. Gorgeous weather together with some snaps and a rather lovely slice of lemon meringue pie with ice cream. Yum!

The OH has just bought me a large telescope. It's very complicated. Doesn't he realise that at my age I'd rather have bath salts for my birthday! Blush (Not really, but it's a bit daunting just trying to put it together. At least the skies look to be clear for a few days so looking forward to doing some stargazing. Goodness knows where I'm going to store it though. Grin

Who's a lucky girl! Lots of snaps to come through the telescope then? As usual Chris, a superb candid, made even better by the eye contact!

Just had a look at Jupiter and moons. Not as easy as you think but once we get the tracking worked out it'll get easier. Missed the ISS but we have a lot of houses in the way and I think it tracked too low. Not sure about sticking a camera on the end though. That's the advanced function I think. Smile

Happy birthday Chris.
And when I was medically retired 5 years ago I bought a telescope to ''pass the time''.
It is still lying in the box in the spare room !!
