Default Photo challenge # 201 'Vacation favourites' Sept. 2/14

The kids go back to school here in Canada today. So, for most people, vacation time is over. Our warmest weather has come in the past week, and I am certainly not ready for summer to be over. It's been a great summer, and I want all of you to share some of your favourite vacation/summer photos from the past 4 months.

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.
~ Please jump in and join us in the photo challenges at any time!
~ HAVE FUN

A few of my photos:
The first two were taken at my friends' cottage near Tobermory, Ontario. They now have three kayaks, so all three of us ladies can go out together. A sunset across the peninsula from our friends' cottage.
The next ones are from my vacation in the Netherlands. The two people in front of the windmill are my 97 year old aunt, who lives in a senior's apartment right there and myself. The tulip and canal photo was taken in the town of Dokkum where one of my cousins lives. It's in the north of the most northern province of the Neterhlands, where they speak a whole different language called Frisian.

My favourite is the kayaks, love the colours. The Dutch tulips are pretty cool, too.

I posted a few of my holiday photos in various challenge threads from the past, but I'll add my top favourites here.

All of these except the wagtail were taken over in Connemara, which is on the West coast. It was the first time I'd been back there for almost thirty years, and although it was only for a weekend it was really lovely. We were blessed with great weather and managed to fit an awful lot into our two and a half days. It's partly mountainous, partly coastal - and sheep everywhere!!

Sabrina, all I can say is WOW! I think I need to take a trip to Ireland. it's beautiful! I love them all, the scenery being so beautiful. Those sheep are so white! The sheep around here are usually pretty grey/brown.
