Ruby Tuesday has legs

Red is the theme of The Teach's fine feature, Ruby Tuesday. I am at the classic mini-golf on Main St. Hyannis. I love this place because it is old and the red bumpers for each hole are short and weathered so I can actually get on the green for a round. Most of the greens, in fact. Unlike the modern mini-golf palaces that dot the Cape. The aforementioned bumpers, the flowers and my sunburned calves complete the ruby themes. When the cold Northerlies are descending this winter, I will refer to this picture to warm my bones...Check out all the red possibilities at Mary's most excellent blog!

I like the old-fashioned flavor of these red bumpers.

I still have not tried mini golf, even though there is the opportunity to do so is not far away from where I live! But it always seems crowded, so I tend to say "next time"!

Lovely reds in this photo!

I haven't played mini-golf in years but I sure have had sunburned calves regardless!

I haven't played in years but the red bumpers and that particular green do bring back great memories!
I agree with Donna that the shadow is really cool!

Mini-golf is so much cooler and more relax compared to playing at the course :) Fun for the kids too! :)
Happy Ruby Tuesday!

Playing on a real course and not the online game is so good. I envy you the lovely day. Nice photo, and thanks for your kind comments on my bejewelled maple leaves.

I hope you're better at mini golf than I am! Even the red bumper would not help my aim. ;-)

That looks like one cute miniature golf place, I do like it when great care are taken to details and keeping it "old fashioned" like this. Even though I'm a *slightly* sore loser when it somes to not winning the actual game...:)

Tracey said...

Love mini-golf...it is the only golf I can play! And it has to have bumpers, of course! ;0)

Olga said...

ooh, you got the red and the shadow!! cool.

Gattina said...

I could play right away !! I love mini golf !!

I think that the fact that your mini-golf place is handicap accessible is wonderful as well. The ones near us can be quite precipitous as I'm always afraid my kids are going to fall into the water. Thank you for visiting and your kind words.

That is a FUN shot! I do have to admit to being a fan of the "newer" courses though...

Hi, Ralph,
original photo angle with lots of curves and lines in it.
I envy sunburned legs.
Mine hardly became pink this year.

I haven't played miniature golf in over 15 years. I think it is time to revisit. My kids will get a kick out of it.

Ralph, this is a nice place to be on a warm afternoon. I hadn't though of putting from a chair but of course you are making it look easy (putting, not making the hole).

The bus in the picture is a privately owned public transportation bus going up a mountain in Guatemala.

It was getting to the head of the line, we were all stopped for a landslide. Most all of the time they are loaded full with passengers and cargo.

Happy WW! Thank you for your visit and nice comment. That was someone else sleeping on the bus, I was enjoying the scenery in Guatemala.

Red bumbers. How very cool ! I love mini golf..
About Gary's layout. It is "O" gauge and takes up most of our basement in a "U" shape. Most all the buildings are scratch built. You can check out Gary's blog here:http://steamacrossthetrestle.blogspot.com/ There are lots of train related pictures.
