My Captured Moment #4 – Riding a Pedalo

It’s time to link up with the lovely Heledd from Running in Lavender for #MyCapturedMoment.


This picture was taken a few weeks back on our holiday in a Centre Parc in Germany. My husband and my daughter were unaware of me snapping away. I often feel that these shots are the most beautiful, as they are so natural and capture special moments much for than those ones you pose for. We were extremely excited to ride on a pedalo. This picture shows the “before we set off” moment. When we returned from our little journey, our faces were slightly red – “driving” a pedalo is harder than it looks. Yes, Mummy Pig and Daddy Pig – we can now feel your pain!

    My two love pedaloes I don’t think they ever grow out of it but yes they are so much hard work x

    I’ve always wondered about CP abroad, did you have a fab time? We would love to host a review of it on minitravellers if you have one you’d like to send in?
    Love these swans and I agree the ones when they don’t know you are looking are fab.

      We had a brilliant time. Sure, that’d be great. I’ll write up a review and will email it over to you within the next few days.

    That’s a lovely photo! Yes those pedal boats always look like so much fun but they’re hard work! #MyCapturedMoment

    Agree with you 100% Heidi. It’s those moments captured when no-one knows 🙂

    What a cute picture. And I totally agree with you, it’s the ones where you catch people naturally which are the most fun I think. Steph xxx

    I totally agree, some of my favourite shots are those taken unawares!! Great shot and love the giant swans. Thank you so much for linking up to #MyCapturedMoment xxxx

    I actually prefer photos taken when family are unaware, or you tend to get either the cheesy grin that always looks a bit odd, or the ‘oh no, I don’t want my photo taken’ look! I love that it’s easy to snap away and capture pure happiness – lovely!
