My Sunday Photo 9th September 2018

The Ferris Wheel

I don’t think I’m ever going to get fed up of looking at my holiday photos. Well, okay, maybe once I’ve finished putting them in my photo book, it’s so time consuming. It’s worth it to keep those memories preserved though.

As soon as we got into Exmouth the Little Man wanted to go on the Ferris Wheel. He had to wait though, as we’d spent time on the beach, having lunch, a walk around the shops on the promenade, back to the beach and dinner in a restaurant first. The Ferris wheel was near to where we had parked our car so we had to go past it again. By this time it was nearly 7pm. But the sky was still blue and it was still really warm. 

The girls were not brave enough to go on so they sat with me an watched their Dad and brother go on the ride. We could hear the Little Man’s exclamations as the wheel went around, at first he sounded terrified, but soon he was crying out, ‘wow, look at that!’ as the view gained dominance over his fear.

I would have loved to have had a ride, but someone had to stay with the girls. How do you feel about these big wheels, do you love them or hate them?

    Love these, they are much more gentle than the fairground ones and the views are brilliant

    they look amazing but I don’t actually like them that much!

    How fun! My youngest son is game for anything…. and I mean anything! Sometimes I can’t look at the rides he will go on.

    I’m like you and could look a my holiday photos constantly. Love how that Ferris wheel contrasts against the blue skies. I can’t remember the last time I sat on a Ferris wheel though. I think I need to change that!

    I’m not keen on the ones where you sit in pairs. This looks much easier. I like the angle you took the wheel. #MySundayPhoto

    Having photos to look back on from holidays is always lovely – especially as they can evoke thoughts and moments of when captured but have perhaps been forgotten. Beautiful blue sky in this photo #MySundayPhoto

    It’s always exciting to have lovely reminders of a great holiday. I enjoy looking through old photos because there are always some that I had forgotten about!

    I was at a vintage carnival a couple of weeks ago and they had a ferris wheel there. I wanted to go on it but couldn’t as I was working at the event. I love seeing things from such a height.

    Hello Anne, You have been blogging for a while like I! Yeah, the Ferris wheel I rather take a shot instead of riding it! We had one close by in Irvine (when living in South. California). Have another meme/challenge for you called All Seasons that also starts on Sunday and goes through Wednesday evening, See 2 comments from people who weekly participate, so I think you’ll like it! Hope to see you there:) Jesh

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I’ve also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit me…is this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I’ve loved. If I don’t love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It’s always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I’ll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
