Oban to Mull, me too, 1970. Saw the seal island and had tea in the cafe at Craignure.

Denni, you managed to get a good shot of a temporary Bucharest plate on the Skoda. The Romanian plates are one of the few identical to ours, and would normally read AB 12 ABC format (B being the only one to use one letter, which is the same as our earlier format), but the temporary was B plus 4 numbers. We see many in London including temporaries though I think many are imported to locals who buy them for a fraction of the cost here and then change the plates to British once the temporaries expire. Always glad to get a chance to go on about number plates...

This lilac is just outside my front door. 'Tis lovely to have it greet me when I come home.



Satguru, I used to have fun with Spanish number plates, trying to figure out what part of the country cars came from. Then they went and changed them, and I lost interest.

Oooh lovely, Liz, I can nearly smell that lilac!
Jill, however much wool is that? Enough for a good few babyjackets I reckon.
Today I bring you more HK transport from a bygone age. The Junk. People buy them for pleasure cruisers now, and this one is usually in the harbour somewhere, much photographed by the tourists. Such a lovely shape.

The Landgate at Rye - the only one of the town's four old gates to survive.

Two musicians from our Spring Bank Holiday festivities. Every year we have a Morris Dancing day on the last Monday in May. People come from all over the World to join in. One of our Morris teams claims to have existed for over 500 years.

That's exactly how I got into foreign plates Liz, in 2001 ours also went silly and I had to give up UK plate spotting as they now look like every other weird random design. Most of Europe ran out of capacity and changed to non geographic plates, as France soon will also. Italy, Finland, Sweden, Portugal, Iceland and Denmark also did, adding to Belgium, Cyprus, Malta, Hungary and Luxembourg who always did, or at least in current times. So the old countries that keep the old geographic formats are Norway, Switzerland, Austria, Bulgaria, Romania, Albania, Greece, Germany and Turkey. Poland did what the UK did around the same time and switched very similar plates to the possibly weirdest on earth. None keep the same format and each town and seems to choose it at random within a limited selection, which has just increased.

My grandparents had a little second house in Rye and the gate was just round the corner. They spent quite a lot in the jewellers next to it as well.

Here is the country lane the last picture was taken from.

Winston and I surprised this fellow behind my house this morning. He sat stock still whilst I took a couple of photos, then hopped off towards the front of the house.

It's the end of May so this thread is now locked. A new thread has been started for June's photos here. Thanks for showing us your part of the world and the photos of things that you think will be of interest to us all.
