Burg Pfalzgrafenstein in the middle of the Rhine River near the town of Kaub. A toll castle on Falkenay Island to guard a customs post. The keep was built in 1326-27 by King Ludwig the Bavarian, the defensive hexagonal wall was built from 1338-4o with more additions made in 1607 and 1755. A chain across the river meant ships could not pass until a toll had been paid. If you refused, you had a delightful stay in the dungeon until a ransom was paid.

I was cleaning the kitchen sink this morning, feeling a bit fed up as it was raining and windy, when all of a sudden there was a break in the cloud and this lovely rainbow appeared.

Very sorry Aaron, that's such a terrible thing to happen.

I caught this sunset by chance today in Wembley.

I'm sorry about Gandalf Howie. Always hurts to loose a much loved pet.

I in the meantime seem to have been adopted by a cat. She is making herself very at home in our garden and has been for a little while now. Definitely not feral, coat is far to well kept for that, she is however an excellent rodent destroyer and we have a lot of mice in the garden.

She's lovely!

The weather here is rainy rather than wintry, but Canadian Tire has declared it Christmas already!

Thank you, he got hit by a car though not a lot of traffic around here and though most don't travel too fast, there are exceptions. Tauriel is still wondering where he is, looking for him and calling him.

Anyway, back to the walk to Cathedral Cove on the Coromandel Peninsula and another view of Motueka Island & Poikeke Island in Mercury Bay, this time over a cliff top paddock.

Belated sympathies, Howie, that's very sad news.

Our local hedgerows are all glowing with berries. Hope it doesn't mean a hard winter

The Christchurch Art Gallery (Te Puna o Waiwhetu) among the traffic lights. Opened in 2003, replacing the Robert MacDougall Art Gallery which was the public art gallery from 1932-2002. Maybe I am totally clueless, but I just do not like buildings that are full of glass. Modern buildings are usually ugly monstrosities.....especially in places where they are so out of place with the surrounding older architecture.
