The statue on top is called the Angel of peace, Just as we were approaching it, the Household Cavelry rode through on the way to Buckingham palace.

Yes, I thought so too Ren, and it was covered in bees - shame it's seen as a weed.

Here's one end of my local shopping centre from 1965-93 in Hampstead Garden Suburb, which is also the A1 from London to Edinburgh since it was built to replace the old one a couple of miles east of it.

Lol! You find the most interesting things on your walks

This is what appears to be a little putting green. It was located on a rock jutting out into the Pacific Ocean at Pebble Beach. It's not one of the main golf courses there, but I didn't see any signs to explain it. Anyhow, there was a narrow path along a bit of a cliff that led to it -- kind of weird!

As always, terrific snapshots, folks ! My contribution isn't terribly panoramic and/or original today, but it's kinda relevant . Without a bit o' warning (or good sense slash planning) I ended up with a *roommate* this week! He was a rescue that, after a stop or three, found his way to my door. He's so happy to have a place to 'take over', too - a very grateful lad, I'm thinking. He spent the morning selecting which bed he likes best [I think he found it, too] and rearranging the lounge chair to his liking. Typical cat. His name is Middlemarch (and, yes, I know that's a very odd name ... but there's a mostly sensible reason for it, I promise). It's no wonder the cats in my life have been so especially neurotic -- considering the monikers I saddle them with ...

He is great . Why do you need a sensible reason for naming him Middlemarch?That it's a great name is fine!

Lovely cat Gats, I must ask my neighbours if any of them are going away so I can have another visitor for a while.

This is exactly why Hampstead Garden Suburb was given its name, this is just round the corner from where I lived there.

This magnificent fellow was swooping around us the whole time we were visting with my Mum by the bay this afternoon. There was a large dead fish floating in the water, and we think this is what had caught his attention.

Congratulations on Middlemarch adopting you, Gats! He looks right at home. Szabs, that water looks so unbelievably green! Is there copper in the bed? Professer, I like the shot of the Houses of Parliament. Spanishliz, what can I say about the toilet? lol. Copago, the galahs are gorgeous, what a beautiful flash of colour. Satguru, always nice to see an English garden.

All in all, another interesting round of photos, thanks everyone. I will get back to posting soon. I've been under the weather, and should be back on my feet soon, hopefully.

Allow me to join in on the admiration for Middlemarch! How are you adapting to having a new owner, Gatsby?

A wise cat that Middlemarch! He knew exactly which house to pick. He is lovely Gats and I hope you have many, many years together with your new roomie.

Awww Gats Middlemarch is absolutely adorable, he looks so content too - I am sure that both of you will settle in quite well together.
