'Ticked off'

So how did you do at the weekend?

I ticked off five out of the ten items I had on my weekend 'bucket list' which for a first (I think) is pretty good going.   We also had the weather to contend with on Saturday which put a dampener on our plans in the afternoon.  But I'm pretty impressed that we achieved half of it.

Not all of it turned out perfectly - like my salted caramel brownies.  I just couldn't get the caramel to the point where it was a lovely deep brown kept crystallising.  But to be honest, it wasn't a list to be followed rigidly - it was just nice to have some options.

So this is what we ticked off.

We discovered something new.  We went to Wilmslow in the morning.  Not very exciting I know, but it's a found and done thing on our bigger list of exploring.

We fed the ducks.

I made squidgy chocolate brownies with vanilla and salted caramel sauce...on the side.

I captured the super moon - wasn't it gorgeous.  I used my ::  300mm lens -  f/5.6 -  ISO100  - 1/400 sec  :: The only editing I did was to crop in tighter.  

I've not included the new hill we found as we were in the car and not on foot - which was my initial intention.

And I filmed all the footage I needed to make my short film on the 'Capturing Childhood' course I'm taking.

As mentioned on Friday I'm going to make this a feature, so if you would like to join along with me we can discovery the adventures, share the discoveries...together.
