T Stands for ........trip in the new car!!!

Hi everyone! When we found that our old car was going to cost so much to repair we decided it was time to buy a new one! In fact we decided on a NEW new one!!!It is a Panda like our old one but a much nicer colour!
It does have lovely aroma inside!!

We went up to our caravan for a few days - the weather wasn't brilliant but we went out to the RSPB for a walk on Saturday and then to Sizergh Castle on Sunday!
The gardens are really waking up now!

From the garden we went up to the woodland walk..

On the way back to the caravan we passed a hill with deer on! They are often too far away to take photos but this time we were really glad we stopped!
Just as we were walking away I noticed that they were heading  towards the river so we rushed back! 
They formed an orderly queue to get into the river having stood there for a while contemplating!!
They started  eating after shaking themselves!
 I don't know why they didn't all cross - there was a small group left!
The stags all just lay down in the grass!

Over the weekend we have had several drinks or meals out and I forgot to take photos of any of them, so I will take you back to March when we met up with my youngest son for lunch at Moose in town.
This is my French toast ham and cheese sandwich and as you can see we had water to drink!

I am now quite tired, so if you will excuse me I will visit after a sleep! 

Thanks for looking, Chris

Congrats on the new car! It's very exciting to get one, isn't it? And those gardens looked fabulous. It's nice to see some green coming out and some flowers too. What a pretty place. And your sandwich and salad look delicious. I think this is a cheery post for this cold APril day. Happy T Day Chris. Hugs-Erika

Gotta love the new car smell:):) Congrats and best of luck with your new baby! Oh, if only things were looking like spring here. Lovely photos and landscapes. Your meal looks yummy too. Happy T day!

Kate said...

Wow! When you said the gardens are waking up you painted that picture beautifully. I love how everything in those photos is gray and dull and then you see gorgeous yellows popping through the ground.
Your meal looks amazing, full of bright colors.
Happy Tea Day,

that's a big group of deer - nice to get some photos. The walks look chilly but at least dry, it seems. had lots of rain here.

A new addition to the family in the form of a new car, enjoy using it, I am sure you will have many trip planned already.
The photos all looked lovely, but I was really drawn to the ones with the deer, that must have been wonderful to see.
Happy T day wishes Chris.

Congratulations on the new car first of all! Looks very very nice.
How lucky to see so many deer. I have never seen a herd quite like that and what a wonderful sight to see them crossing the water. A lovely day out - for you and for us via your photos.
Hugs, Neet xx
ps Port Sunny I hope

Lovely photos!

How nice to see your new car. It's a beauty. I remember that new car smell, too.

WOW! I was so impressed by the deer and the queue (a word we Americans seldom use) at the river. It was a wonderful sight to see.

You sound like Theresa and me. We ate out a couple of times, and even though I took my camera with me every time, I never got a single shot of our meals or drinks. I was intrigued by your French toast ham and cheese sandwich, since I have never heard of one before. Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful photos of your walk and your lunch and water with us for T this Tuesday. And yes, you did it right, dear friend.

We've just ordered ourselves a new car, as Hubby will be losing the company one now he's redundant. We opted for a Skoda Fabia Estate, can't wait for it to arrive with its new car smell :-)
Lovely photos too, I love the deer!
Happy T-Day Chris,

I've never heard of the Panda, so I googled it. Cool. And exciting to now have reliable transportation. I enjoyed my virtual walk with you. Lovely signs of spring :) So many deer! That sandwich and salad looks delicious, and what a fun name for the restaurant. Happy T Tuesday

Your new car looks amazing 😁. Glad you have a fun trip to enjoy that new car smell 😉. It looks like spring is finally on its way, I love the photo of the pussy willow and those deer are a spectacular sight! Moose Coffee is one of my favourite places too and your food looks so yummy 😀. Wishing you a very Happy T Day! J 😊 x

It's always a joy to follow you on garden walks! I think there must be more gardens per km where you live!Thanks for sharing a little Spring with us!☕

What a beautiful road trip Chris, memorable moments with the Deer. Congrats on the new car enjoy and may it take you to many more adventures with lashings of tea and scrummy sandwiches at the end of the day.
Creative wishes Tracey xx

Ah ... that new car smell, Chris. Congrats on the new wheels and - hopefully - an end to visits to the car repair shop.

The deer photos are lovely. Why some stayed behind and why the stags all settled apart make me wonder.

I'm late to T again. Sorry! I'll catch up one of these days ;-)

Happy T-day! Hugs, Eileen

Halle said...

How fun to get a new car! Love the garden photos. And all those deer!!! Amazing!
Happy T day!

Sorry I am late to comment, in fact: very late. Oh, well, better late than never!
Congratulations on your new car. That Panda looks very smart. You might remember we bought a new Fiat last year. We got a Fiat 500x, and we are very happy with it.
Thank you for taking me to the park to see all the new growth and gorgeous daffodils and deer.
Enjoy your weekend and CU on Tuesday,
