~~ Friday’s Hunt v.2.05 -- "E" is for ...

For the week of July 29th Friday's Hunt:
1. Starts with E
2. Week's Favorite
3. Bounce


1. Starts with "E":  English Gardens

I like to visit English gardens, most are kept so pretty. 

The first I caught during our bus ride from Dover where our cruise ship landed to London to spend a few days there.  I do not know what this garden is for or what it may be a part of.  Note the black striped airplane beside the building.

 
My set below are some more pictures of Regents Park, London,
that I took during our June visit. (other Regents Park picture posts)


 
Now some June pictures of our English friend's garden.
They live north of London at Towcester (link), Northamptonshire, U.K.
 

 
 
This vegetable garden was not in England, but in the U.K, at Harwell, Scotland.
It was located adjacent to a church there, I don't know who owned it.
2. Week's Favorite:  Mrs. Jim has found a toy Volkswagen Transporter that she liked.  The Peppa Pig (previous blog link) creatures didn't seem to mind her riding with them.

 
It has to be my favorite because it is a Mrs. Jim Picture.

3. Bounce: My title, "Hang on, we'll bounce when we land".
 
 
When I found this picture at the Cracker Barrel in Baton Rouge last weekend (now you know why I'm so slow in answering your comments last week--it may happen again this weekend?) I had thought that the title would come out.  Wrong.
 
4.  A food picture:  (due to popular demand)
 
"Breakfast on the Ship"
 
Believe it or not, I don't gain much weight, if any, on our cruises.  One of the reasons is that I try to really enjoy my breakfast and make it large.  The omelet is two egg, sometimes I have it one egg, with sausage, bacon, mushrooms, onions, spinach (a double helping)--for color, and white and yellow cheddar cheese.
 
Continuing clockwise is my canned fruit selection, two different types of link sausage, corn beef hash (almost as good as what the Army cooks made), a pile of ketchup,  what's left of a hash brown potato patty, a lemon filled pastry, and a small pancake.  Some days I also have a piece or two of raw pineapple or cantaloupe, watermelon, or all.
 
The cruise ship, Pacific Princess (link), is the Princess line's small ship with a capacity of only 680 passengers.  It will go where other larger ships can't, we rode with it into the Black Sea in August, 2013.  This cruise left from NYC, then we visited Halifax, three stops in Iceland, and two in northern Scotland before we finished at Dover, England.  That was followed by a bus ride into London where we stayed a couple of day.

Oh you have food. I'm getting ready for breakfast, but it won't be as good as your cruise breakfast. I love it when you post your food. Why? I don't know, but I think it's because we like the same kind of food.

Have a fabulous day and weekend. ☺
 
Breakfast is the way to start your day.
 
I felt like having a big breakfast this morning. At least something other than yogurt and granola. Maybe I can talk the Husband into getting BBQ spareribs for lunch. It touched my heart when I read that your favorite photo was your favorite because it was of Mrs. Jim. Sweetness!
You asked where's the "E" in my photo. the trees were eucalyptus ones. :-)
 
Wow..awesome breakfast..would love to have eaten that...oatmeal gets old...and I love the Mrs Jim picture. She looks very comfortable!
 
Love all the gardens. Wish mine looked half as good as any of those. Great shot of Mrs. Jim. What fun! Love the creative take on "bounce." That breakfast looks yummy! Thanks so much for joining Friday's Hunt. Have a great week!
 
Lovely gardens. Mrs. Jim appears to be having a good time. Love the bounce!
 
Comment earlier from a 'double posting':
I will be in London on Thursday for a stop and then continue to Eastbourne. Bois means wood in French, I live in Belgium and don't know any city called Bois, lol ! Your photos are very nice !
