I’m so glad you all enjoyed my “Shamu” photo, for this challenge, and here are some more photos of a more personal nature, showing movement.
I rather enjoy hula hooping these days. I find it quite relaxing to do, and great exercise for the tummy muscles. In Punta Cana, I decided to show my little granddaughter how it’s done, and although I hadn’t done it since I was a child, I managed to get up to five hoops,
before they got the better of me. 😉
I got a photo from my son the other day. Now my little granddaughter is a couple of years older, she following in granny’s footsteps, or should that be “hula twirls.?” 😉
Here’s my belly dancing debut, and one and only performance, at a fancy dress party aboard a Nile cruise when we did our Egypt trip in the 90’s. I’ve posted it before, but thought it would also do for the “movement” theme.
Hope you enjoyed my movement pics.
Sadly, another Russel Ray camping trip comes to an end………………..Hope all is well.
Thanks for all your likes and comments, Russel. You’re welcome to visit any time. Have a great weekend. 😉
Wow! That is SO cool! Wish I could do the hula hoops 😆
If you did it as a child, I don’t think you’d have a problem. 😉
Wow, lovely pictures, perfect for the challenge.
Thanks for the visit, and your comment, Nisha. 😉
Perfect selection for the challenge AD. Your granddaughter had a great role model to emulate! Does she belly dance as well ? 🙂
Thanks, Madhu. I’m sure she would try if she saw me do it. 😉
A very moving spectacle!
Hehehe. Glad you found it so, Coil. 😉
Love those hoops – what a great idea fo the theme
Thanks, Jo. Glad you enjoyed the pics. 😉
that belly dancing must have been great fun.
Your granddaughter does very well.
I never managed more than the traditional 1 at a time hoola
Yes it was fun, Rosa. Most people would be quite happy with one hoop. 😉
Hula hoops and belly dance makes for quite the resume.
Yeah….. maybe I could join a circus. 😉
Thanks, Tina. 😉
I think I must buy a hula hoop!
When would you find the time to hula, Tandy? It’s a bit difficult to do it whilst you’re cooking. 😉
Very impressive hula moves AD 🙂
I haven’t touched a hula hoop in years and I used to love them when I was younger. I think I should get my hands on one sometime in the near future 😉
Yes you should, TA. I got mine from Sportsman’s Warehouse. It’s quite a big one and weighs 1kg. It comes in pieces and you fit it together. 😉
Awesome shots… I never learned to do this and sometimes I feel like buying a hula hoop. 😉
Well there’s no time like the present. Just do it. 😉
😉 😉 😉
Really great pics, perfect for the theme, too.
Thanks, Naomi. I thought they were fun. 😉
Nice work with the hulas, seems like u still got it?
Thanks, evea. Of course I’ve still got it. 😉

Thanks, Jake. 😉
You go girl!
Thanks, Suzanne. I will do that. 😉
Great pics (awesome,teehee! :P)! Nick LOVES and is very good at hoola hooping,brings much joy and laughter to watch his facial expressions when he gets more than one going,LOL! 🙂
PS: Sent you an email
That’s so cute, DC. What about Jamie? 😉
Jamie,not so much with the hoops-too much like work for her 15 year old self (DON’T tell her I said that…her sense of self worth seems fragile lately,LOL).
that is amazing AD! your little granddaughter looks as if she will give you a run for your money! LOL!
Yes, she’s a very determined young lady. Can’t wait to see her when she visits next month. 😉
Looks to me like you’d be the life of any party! What fun… great choice for movement!
Thanks, Gunta. I have my moments. 😉
You look wonderful in that photo!
Thanks, Gilly. I quite enjoyed my moment in the spotlight. 😉
Each night there is hula hooping at the San Diego Zoo during the summer Zoo hours.
OK. Thanks for letting me know, just in case I happen to be there. 😉
Yay – hula hoops!! I love these shots! And the belly dancer is fun, too! 🙂
It was fun to be a belly dancer just for one evening. 😉
Wow, belly dancing on the Nile cruise! Thank you for sharing your wonderful, fun travel memory!
It was great fun, Amy. I’m really very shy. 😉
Could never manage those hoops, even when I was very young and fit.
I’ve been trying to teach hubby, but he’s the wrong shape. 😉
It was such fun. 😉
You never fail to impress me! Great pics!
Thanks, ppd. I do my best. 😉
That’s certainly something I could never do, hula-hoop that is 😀
Maybe you’d be better at belly dancing. 😉
Thanks, Madelaine. 😉
