Anana & I haven't been up to too much lately, but we're going wine tasting in northern Michigan this weekend! In the meantime, enjoy the pickup line Anana thought up in case we meet any lady pineapples. Grin

We had a very nice family day trip yesterday and Baranof got to see some very interesting and amazing large structures...

roler - take note for your visit!! Wink

First of all we went to the Falkirk Wheel - it's a structure built to connect the Union Canal and the Forth & Clyde Canal. The wheel replaced a stair case of 11 locks over a height difference of 35m.  It was opened in 2002. The Wheel only takes 1.5 kWh of energy to turn (same as boiling 8 kettles).

They've made a big fun area on the basin and around with water play for kids, water zorbing etc. We've yet to actually go ON the Wheel, but the structure is amazing as it is. Smiley

After the Wheel we went to the Kelpies, which are just about 10 mins drive away (or you could walk/cycle there - 6km).

They're named after the very strong water spirits which are said to inhabit the lochs and pools of Scotland and appear in horse's form (or human). The Kelpies in Falkirk are a monument to horse powered heritage across Scotland. The horse's heads stand 30m tall from the ground (that's taller than the sphinx) and have an underground structure of 35m more.

Both structures are absolutely amazing, and free to visit.

Today we're going into town as the Hobbitses need to have their pre-school eye testing done. And we're hopefully going down to the Harbour so my big sis can take some photos of lighthouses. Smiley


I love the Kelpies Smiley and that wheel is AMAZING!

We just got back from longlining. It's very fast paced and can be dangerous so I couldn't take photos while we were actualy pulling gear. I did get a few photos of some of the fish we caught and released-


a skate


and grenadier

and occasionally some deep sea starfish or brittlestars come up with the fish. I put them in a tin so my kiddo could look at them before we set them loose. Nessie checked them out too-

A photo of Poundcake the day I took him to work, standing on the back of another mythical creature, a centaur.
This metal centaur sculpture was made for the Diagnostic Center for Population and Animal Health at MSU when the new building was opened in 2005 by sculptor Jim Cunningham. The staff and faculty are greeted every morning by this handsome fella. Poundcake thought he was neat but wondered why his 'fur' was so chilly!

What a suave little gentleman!!!  Grin Stella and I hope to have some fun this weekend to make up for the fact that I had a migraine last week and missed out on a few things.

While last week was mostly stressful and not fun (waiting at the hospital for 10+ hours for my mom's hip replacement surgery - which thankfully went well!), we did go to Tampa Bay Comic Con this weekend since my mom's surgery was originally scheduled for June and we had pre-purchased the tickets so we HAD to use them. Cheesy I haven't had time to sort through pics yet so those will be coming soon.

I've just been SO hectic busy and I've got a couple orders to make and another swap to finish but pics are coming soon!!

Here's one teaser to tide you over:

Ooooh... Comic Con! Cheesy Can't wait to see more photos!!

Baranof on the other hand went with us to a double header at the cinema on Sunday to see Suicide Squad and Star Trek Beyond.




We still have to finish labelling school uniforms this week, and we'll go to our first ever baby shower on Saturday (baby showers not really a "thing" in the UK).
