Boats and Hippos
This week’s Weekly Photo Challenge has afloat as it’s theme, and the above photo combines floating boats, a jetty, and a few hippo in the background keeping cool in the water and watching us as we prepare to go afloat!
Juno keeping cool in the heat
And a swimming pool is the ideal place to cool down in the African heat, especially if you are a White Shepherd with lots of fur!
Clouds afloat in the sunset
I think the best sunsets are those that have lots of clouds afloat in the sky, to make the colours more interesting.

I often post photos of being outdoors in the mountains when hillwalking, but here are a few different photos of the great outdoors, discovering new places and ancient monuments.
Sometimes it is hard to avoid crowds in places of great beauty and historical interest.
Crowds in Venice
But sometimes the place is so beautiful that you ignore the crowds (and the scaffolding!), and the queues to get inside.
St Marks Square, Venice
But I think I still prefer to be in the outdoors with nature.

Old Maltese house.
The wooden shutters and balcony on this house have been given a little Tender Loving Care to spruce them up, in contrast to the house below, which has been neglected and left unloved.

One, two, three, Jump
Fleeting moments that we capture on camera bring back good memories of something that would otherwise be only a memory. This photo was taken on a hilltop in the Matopos, near Bulawayo, Zimbabwe a few years ago where we went to watch the sunset while having a few ‘sundowners’. Some of us can jump higher than others!
