I'm quite chuffed about that. I've found flints, the odd roman coin (very common round here), even the tooth from a horse once, but I've never found a real fossil before.

I've spent the day going through old photos and have spent hours (I swear it seems like hours) scanning and re-sizing. This is on Curacao a few years back when my sister and I took a trip to get away from winter. I want to take my husband back someday.

I'd like to find any of those but a sea urchin fossil is a great find, well done! I would be chuffed too.

Another photo I scanned yesterday. This one was taken in Vermont in 2001. We were very interested in buying this old car. I wish we had.

I thought of Satguru's interest in road signs when I saw this. Not many Clearway signs left now I'll bet. This one is situated on a side road adjoining the A.325 between Aldershot and Farnborough.

Love the old car, the duck, the fossil and the daffs - and everything else!

This is the view out the window of my back door, just a few minutes ago.

A chic white-out!

Copago and ClaraSue have captured such lovely summery colours. It's nothing but dirty grey here. Today the fishermen had lined up all their handiwork on an upturned boat - new bright ropes on the lobster/crab pots.

Love that old car, probably worth a small fortune done up.

We had a lovely sunny day today with some interesting cloud formations

More trips for me now- that clearway sign is actually an old one despite using lower case- it was the only official one which did and was only issued for a couple of years. I've just found the location. I've got a bag of shell fossils from the beach near Swanage (I did anyway, goodness knows what happened to them) but even with a metal detector I've never found a Roman coin.

I went to an archive exhibition at Harrow Museum last night as they used one of my photos in their poster. It's the view across the hills but the flash managed to reflect off that exact one when I took it.

Round here the Romans were so prolific it's quite usual to unearth a coin when gardening, or to find one that's been turned up when they've been cultivating the fields.

I'm a classics graduate, so would be over the moon to unearth a Roman coin! I'll have to get down to your part of the country, Christina smile

The other view of Pulteney Bridge in Bath, where the shops are over the River Avon. I did not walk over the bridge and back...

The Romans were all over Essex. Colchester was sacked by Boudica, and the fields round there are full of Roman bits and pieces. The museum in Colchester has some fabulous Roman mosaics as well as weapons, coins, pottery, every day utensils, even a chariot.

We got some snow overnight...
There's a Jeep Liberty hidden under there.

Great pic! Love the JEEPRZ tag!

Today the sun is shining here, and Precious was quite adventurous in the snow.

All that snow! Brilliant pics!
Yesterday here it was 41* (112*F) and we spent the afternoon on the lake with the water temperature being 30. Just thought I'd share ... wink

Howie, thanks solely to your pictures, I knew the answer to the location of the Pulteney Bridge in a recent KO round!
SpanishLiz,I can't imagine Twiggy venturing outside into the snow (she hates the rain), but Precious seems to be relatively at ease?
Love the Bearded Dragon - imagine asking kids to draw that based solely on the name! - and the flowers; and Sue, I'm sitting down to lunch straight after this post as my mouth is watering. Nothing as grand as your fare though.

Here's another splash of colour - I THINK this is a variety of Corymbia (a flowering gum) but I'm very happy to be corrected by anyone with more knowledge on this!

I've been looking through some old photos as well. This is a beat up old boat we saw beside a fishing lake when out for a walk about three years ago. Don't know as I would trust it, but it appeared to be still in use
