I was thinking It would be kinda fun if we all active members here could share some photos from the different places around the world that we live in!

So I will start by sharing this photo that i took on april 14 2012 in Honningsvåg, county North Cape Norway.

It shows the harboro on a warm spring day.

Can't wait to see how it looks where you live!

Have a great day,
reg. Mrbingo83

I also wanted to add that I DID like the casino. It was not crowded at all on a Monday to Wed. Hardly anyone there, which made it really nice. The casino was big, but not so big that one gets lost, like the ones around here, lol.

Here is a link to where I stayed. It is way out in the "boonies."

Also, my friend had a jacuzzi SUITE for us all to stay in, so I felt very spoiled for a few days. 🙂

Hey all, just finished recovering from a long weekend in Auckland,NZ. Spent most of yesterday in the Sky City Casino. Biggest/best casino in New Zealand. 14 hours at the casino. Hours playing slots, 5 hour stint playing Blackjack and Caribbean alone. Ended up down a couple hundy by 3am so all good.🙂

Dinner in the Sky Tower as the sun went down was awesome! Little pic as we were leaving late last nite of the tower.

Ah sorry for some reason I thought you were from Australia.

My daughter is 7, I can't wait until she wants Bieber or more likely One Direction tickets... 🤢

Sounds like a top weekend!

Speaking of Justin Bieber, your girls might be disappointed to find out he already has a wife. This is so cute.

Adorable.

This was a while back but they did meet and get "married." I guess Avialana has since passed away. 🙁

Poor thing. I wonder if he ever did go and meet her.

Back in my part of the world we bought some strawberries a few weeks back and found the biggest strawberry I have ever seen in the punnet. In the pic that is an Aussie 50 cent coin next to it. That is our biggest coin and according to wikipedia it is 31.5mm (1.24 inch) across. So you can see that the strawberry was as big as a decent sized apple.

Yes, the second video shows them together, and it is really touching that he did this for her. Made me think twice about him.

Wow, that strawberry is HUGE and it looks so good! I LOVE strawberries. This summer a friend gave me some right out of his garden, and I swear they were the best strawberries I had ever tasted in my life. I love and miss "summer fruit" already. I cannot believe how big that one is. Were there any others close to that size or was that one an exception in the "punnet?" That is just wild!

Lol, I had to look up the word "punnet." I learn something new every day from this place and often from you, CL-Ed. 🙂 I like how this site attracts people from everywhere, not just the "same old, same old." lol

Oh sorry I missed the bit where you said "they did meet"! We need an "I'm an idiot" smilie. 😨

I actually did click on the 2nd video then got there and read the bit straight away that said she had died and I scrolled down and read a few comments and by the time I looked at the video it was showing photos with her mum or someone so I figured it was a tribute video and it was making me sad and I didn't realise it was about her meeting him so I closed it down.

Good on him. What a nice guy.

As for the strawberries, there were a few other ones that were larger than usual but as a punnet is quite small (about 10cm square) there wasn't another one that big. There were only 4 or 5 strawberries in the punnet while there are normally more than 10.

My son has to take a piece of fruit to pre-school each day which they cut up and share amongst all the kids. So he took the strawberry in to show all his little friends "the biggest strawberry in the world" as he called it.

This weekend we took a little trip to a place called the Hunter Valley which is a couple of hours north of Sydney. It is known for its wine and there are loads of vineyards. We went there because my wife and sister in law wanted to see Alicia Keys in concert on Saturday night. Even though I'm not really much of a fan, I enjoyed the concert - and hey its pretty good sitting on a hill in the afternoon and early evening drinking loads and listening to music. Sorry if that makes you folks in the northern hemisphere cold season jealous!

But before that we went to a few vineyards and met this fellow at one of them who let us hand feed him (or her?) some crushed up crackers.

Hope, That was a bittersweet video. Sad that she is gone, but sweet that she got to meet him. What a nice thing for him to do.

Love the peacock photos. What a pretty background there with the mountains.

Wow. And YES, I AM jealous. I used to love visiting the vineyards and doing the wine tasting thing. Amazingly, MN does have a few Vineyards. It's more fun in California, though.

I am also jealous of the outdoor concert: I LOVE outdoor concerts, and I really like Alicia Keys! I think she is very talented, not the "canned talent" so prominent these days.

Thanks for sharing the photo: I used to take my sons to a place in St. Cloud, MN where they have beautiful gardens (Mungsinger Gardens) across the river from St. Cloud State University (where I obtained my first degree) and they always had a peacock down there in a cage. They are so pretty.

I also love seeing the GREEN! Our warm season here is MUCH too short, and this year worse, since summer did not really arrive until the end of June. I already cannot wait for spring!

Here are some shots from our cruise to New Caledonia and Vanuatu. In order:

1. A striped sea snake that gave us a fright as we did a glass bottom boat tour around Amadee lighthouse island. I leaned back over the edge of the boat, turned to look in the water and saw this guy sitting on the side of the boat. The guy next to me freaked out and jumped up out of his seat when I pointed it out. 😂

2. Amadee lighthouse island in New Caledonia.

3. Isle of Pines, also New Caledonia.

4. A hermit crab my son found on the beach.

5. A towel crab our room attendant made for us one day.

6. My daughter climbing the rock wall on the ship.
