Love the Bayeaux Cathedral!



Whilst we were in Darwin recently, Maynooth and I were enjoying the warm evening and having a drink by the side of the pool when this little fellow (possum) decided to join us. Apparently, he lives in the garden of the hotel and often comes down from his tree to scavenge whatever food he can find in the bins and around the pool/barbecue area.

Here is an image that I thought some of you may like to see. This is a picture of St. Michael's Mount taken from the causeway that leads to it near the village of Marazion on the shores of Mount's Bay, Cornwall.

It requires some effort on the part of the visitor to get there, but the view from the top is well worth the climb.

Thanks for that. It brings back a most romantic memory of climbing it in my younger days!

This is a statue, one of four, positioned on the outside of the building known as the Historisches Kaufhaus in the city of Freiburg-im-Breisgau, Germany.

Built during 1520 and 1521 the Kaufhaus was the building in which the Guild of Merchants would meet and this is one of the most visited historic buildings in the city; this may have something to do with the fact that it is located barely 100m from Freiburg's beautiful Gothic cathedral.

This statue represents the Habsburg Emperor Maximilian I who was the Holy Roman Emperor between 1486 and 1519. The remaining three statues, all of Habsburg Emperors and which will be featured over the next few days, represent Charles V, Ferdinand I and Philip I of Castile.

Here are the statues from Freiburg's Historisches Kaufhaus that represent the Habsburg Emperors Ferdinand I, on the left, and Charles V. Both were grandsons of Emperor Maximilian I.

Above each statue we can see a representation of a 'baldachin'. This was a large canopy that was raised above a throne or an altar and is also known as the Canopy of State.

Just one more from the Toronto Zoo, in part to celebrate becoming a Polar Bear in the FT Duel! This chap had a real routine going, swimming over to a spout that was emitting (presumably) cool water, flipping on to his back and gliding until he reached a rocky island, from which he pushed off first with a front paw, then a back paw, finally going deep, then flipping on to his stomach again to repeat the whole exercise.

The A3 just before the fairly new Hindhead tunnel, which replaced a ridiculous narrow road after a major dual carriageway which snaked through the North Downs for some miles and caused endless holdups including some sets of traffic lights right in the middle. Instead of being bypassed most of the old road above the tunnel has now been grassed over.
