These are great! Where did you get a picture of a camel? That's amazing.

Melli said...

How CLEVER you are to come up with idioms to fit such recent pictures! I bet you had that in mind the minute you saw those camels... RIGHT!
Well done!

Thom said...

Well done. The pictures are so good with the idioms. I like the Straw that broke the camels back. I wanted to use that but I couldn't get a camel LOL. Great job :)

Jientje said...

Very good, Gattina! I am smiling.
I enjoyed riding a camel many years ago. Like you said, it sways like a boat.

Excellent Gattina!
Nobody could have done that idiom (camel) better than you did. :)

Oh, wonderful! You are sharing all the photos from your vacation in very creative ways. I love it!

AND, from my post: we call a snail escargot if we plan to eat it, otherwise it is just a snail. (And no, we didn't eat those snails, I wrote that because the anemone was eating one.)

Wonderful job, Gattina. I love the camel photo. Both photos fit the idioms perfectly.
