Time for Friday’s Hunt and Weekend Reflections.  This week we are at the letter W, Favourite, and Machine. While i was on the I.O.W it was my daughter Gillian's birthday and I took her out to lunch at the WHITE Hart Inn.  Notice all the WIRES across the street and the WHEEL on the WALL and WHITE WINDOW frames outside the pub.  

Notice we were not WATCHING our WAISTLINES in the food we ordered and for the first time in my life I had a Seafood Lasagne which was WONDERFUL.

Plenty of W’s on that sign and as the water was frozen I took shots of the REFLECTION of the ferry and cranes that all must have MACHINES on them.

Many thanks for visiting and also for leaving any comments.

In the UK, this Carrion Crow would be very familiar to everyone however to me from N.Ireland it is  not.  We do have some however the majority are Hooded Crows in our part of the world and these are much rarer in England.  Since I did no know Tex's meme was finishing, there are fences in the shots.   This was shot in Ryde on the Isle of Wight.

When I was walking home through my town the other day, I spied this white cat but unfortunately it saw me and really came too close to photograph but this is the best I could do.  I am linking to SATURDAY CRITTERS.
