Friday Finds

Starts with Q
Week's Favorite

The first two will be the same, except we’ll work our way through the alphabet. The second can be a favorite image or activity from the week. The third will be different each time.

Friday Finds ABC Wednesday

Letter Q - I'm going to try to find cities/towns we've visited as the theme. I will exclude Canada nad the US from this round.

I will keep a running list at the bottom of the Friday post.

Queenstown New Zealand

Melbourne to Queenstown

Milford Sound

Milford Sound


Week's Favourite - was taken by my husband on Saturday in Montreal. He was stuck in traffic.

The overcoat worn by the Hasidim on Sabbath, is a shiny silk cloth, called a "Kaften" of "Bekitshe".
On his head the Hasid will wear on Sabbath a "Shtreimel" or "Spodik". The "Shtreimel" consists of a cap surrounded with fur of tails from a fox. The "Spodik" is worn by Hasidim of Polish origin. It is very similar to the "Shtreimel", only a little taller and made of synthetic fur.


EVENING most evenings we are treated to great sunsets. This one is from last year as I like the view through the windows.

A reflection

And this one is from this week.


  1. ...a great collection Jackie.

  2. Very pretty sunsets, Jackie, all of them. Thank you for the Queenstown, NZ, pictures. We didn't go there on our cruise. I don't think it was even an option. We went around NZ on its east, from Auckland and then over to Tasmania. It looks like a nice town, cold in the winter I am thinking.

  3. I wa s hoping that your "Q" would be for Quebec City, we loved that town. We picked up our car there and after four days and nights, headed down to Montreal for a bit. We didn't do the pretty East Township this time.

  4. That shop with the sheep in the window looks very enticing - I bet I could spend a long time in there! The sunsets are just stunning. What a neat snapshot of the Hasidim in their finery. I didn't know about the specific types of head coverings. Very interesting.

  5. The sheep are adorable. The sunsets are gorgeous. That is quite an interesting lesson on the outfits. Thanks so much for joining Friday's Hunt. Have a great week!

  6. Lovely photo's and well chosen Q's ;-)

  7. Queenstown has so many beautiful colors.
