Default Photo challenge #135 Vacation {July 12, 2011}

Photo challenge #135 -Vacation. It's summertime and lots of people are on vacation. For this challenge I want you to take photos of people enjoying vacation activities....yes, there have to be people in the photos!
Photo Challenge Rules:
~ Have FUN with this! There are no right or wrong photos.
~ Take as many pics as you want, share the few you like best.
~ Please share only current photos, taken after the challenge was issued.
~ We CANNOT upload our photos to the SCS galleries. You may upload them as an attachment or host them from your blog or any online photo hosting site. Just provide the direct link to the photo in your post and also make sure that it is not from a password protected album.
~ Just a reminder that we are a family-friendly site if you are sending others off this site to view photos in an album hosted elsewhere.
~ You can jump in and start any of the photo challenges at anytime..
~ Again - HAVE FUN!

My pictures My sister-in-law and friend walking to the beach called 'Singing Sands' where you can walk out 1/2 kilometer and still only be in water up to your thighs. It's in a bay and the water is warm and the beach is sandy. Second photo is of our hosts and my SIL enjoying morning coffee on the dock, before we went for rides on the seadoo. Third photo is of a pitcher plant in bloom. It is such an unusual plant and I have only ever seen it in this small ecosystem across from the Singing Sands beach. It is a carnivorous plant that injests bugs. My friend Carl is in the background, also taking photos. This is an annual trek for us.

Oops, something happened while I was uploading this post, and the photos didn't transfer. I'll try again.
I added a photo of my friends in the water. We had already walked out quite a ways into the water, and see how shallow it still is?

The photo with the boardwalk over the sands and the last photo are my favourites, love the perspective in the last one.

I've been having trouble finding photos for this - it was too early when I was in the park on Thursday. And while we were on a beach last weekend, that was before the challenge, and anyway my camera was in the bike .

Does biking count as a vacation activity. This photo is indoors, but when we holiday in Greece, hiring a bike is always an important part of the holiday, so I'm counting it in .
And I saw these two guys playing tennis on the local courts when I went out shopping in between downpours this morning.

That steel drum one is cool - I've never actually seen one before. I like the beach ones too with the guys burying each other, and the southernmost point is a great shot.

A group shot of young people at my house. We first met the couple in the middle (blue shirt and plaid shirt) back in '98 when we visited South Africa, she was 8 and he was 12. They just came over to America for the first time to visit (went to Canada and a few other States too) and we had them over to our house. My oldest (in XC shirt) turned 2 in South Africa (my kids are half African so this was a treat to celebrate there) and is the only kid in this group to have met them so it was a real treat for the rest to met each other. (my other daughter is in the pink and that is my baby brother beside her)

The first picture is obiously posed but the second one is my favorite as I kept snapping while they were talking and my brother had just said something funny. My girls were the only ones paying attention and both made faces without the other one knowing! Only my kids!!

Amber, fun pictures and great for a memory book. I'm so glad you had a great visit!
Diana, I love all your fun summer vacation photos! The beach is always fun and I love the prow of the boat pic and also the sun in the background shot.

Karrie - that is beautiful. It reminds me of Greece . I love the soft pastel colours of the beach chairs. I just wish I was there sitting in one of them!
Thanks for sharing.

Karrie, I agree, that is such a peaceful scene! Can't we all just imagine ourselves in those chairs! I love the waves coming in to shore.

Our holiday was so late this year, and the not-very-good summer meant I never really got any photos round and about the place here.
The kids making sandcastles were on the beach at La Rochelle, along the Atlantic coast in France.
DH on the beach was also the Atlantic coast, but further north, in Brittany. It was really mixed weather that day - I'd thought about swimming but when it clouded over it was too cold.
The guy with the guide book was in La Rochelle - easy to pick out the tourists there as we were mostly holding maps .

Looks like you had a fun vacation but did you pack ALL that stuff on your motorcycle?

No way. DH's current bike is not comfortable enough for touring on - we took the car. The bike(s) in the second photo belonged to a Dutch couple who had gone round Luxembourg and through France all the way to Spain, and were on their way back home again. They were pretty well laden!
