For some bizarre reason, I think "Froggy." Something about his look. I played that character (Froggy), in "The Foreigner" many years ago, and just his look speaks that character.

I know that sounds stupid for a race horse, but I'm not much into equestrian sports. I do like riding, though.

A typical road in Temple Fortune, where I found a parking space for the shops.

Our local Council have made a new wildlife lake. This is how it looked last summer, am hoping to go back this summer to see how it has changed.

Now we are on the way to the next destination of Blackburn. A friend drove me which was very kind and much welcome. These are the Black Mountains in Wales.

Just dropping in again. wink Even if I'm not really posting photos, I am still checking on this board and looking at all the photos. They've been fantastic!

If I were your daughter, MG, I'd call the horse Shadowfax, but she might not be as much of a Tolkien fan as I am. wink

This lake, set in a beautiful national park, was one of my favourite places to visit during the holidays for a day when I was younger. I returned to it recently, and found it was all dried up. Still went on the walk around it though, which was a lot shorter than I remember it being.

I love the old bandstands. We had a lovely Victorian one in Southend but a cliff slip one night took half the site away and they had to move it quickly to save it. It's never found a proper home since, which is a shame. They used to have open air jazz concerts there in the summer which were great.

This was my view as I waited for my bus this morning (around 11 a.m.). The precipitation varied from big fluffy flakes of snow to painful pellets of freezing rain and back again.

Just before leaving Wales and heading back into England, we had a brief stop at Raglan Castle. Brief as we never went in to look, just gazed from outside the front of it. No time as we still had to get to Blackburn and then John had to return home.

Everybody has been posting great photos. I hope to be back in the swing of things shortly.

Christinap, those spiderwebs are great. Liz, I am currently traveling in northern US and seeing sights like what you're having. I miss the sunshine. grin Ren, I'm jealous of your gorgeous days full of flowers and fruit. Raglan Castle looks like it has seen better days, but it still looks like an imposing structure. Lovely photo. I keep telling people I was born in the wrong era. laugh

I look forward to seeing everybody's photos every day.

I've been browsing back through the month. I love all Ren's HK photos, so warm and sunny and just so interesting. Copago, I sort of envy you living so far from anywhere, but how do you cope in emergencies? Liz, that sort of snowfall I couldn't cope with, what is the worst you ever get? Satguru, interesting as ever, Howie's great travel shots, Mike's lovely photos, oh everyone has just contributed so much again. It's always a pleasure to come here even if I don't have anything to share.

Great spider webs, Christina!
Thankfully emergencies have been few and far between but there have been a few hurried trips into town for injuries or illness. The hospital in 40kms away but there is no doctor there - the nurses are great and if they can't deal with it they get the Flying Doctor in pretty quick. We have 40kms of dirt road so rain can make us stuck - there was only one very slippery trip I had to take so far!

Here is a certain little show off on the knee board backwards.

On the knee board backwards! Wow.
I remember trying to water ski on the Loire and I just never managed to stand up at all. My daughter aged 7? Up first time and holding on with one hand after three tries.
Little charmer.

Lovely photos for this month. I'm still driving to work in the dark and driving home in the dark so no time for photo taking. I'll be back posting photos as soon as I can but until then, I'm really enjoying all the different photos you're all posting. smile
