After all,what more could I want for breakfast?



Toast with Marmite spread thinly on it might be good, or perhaps some porridge.

Superb colour and imagery cinnamon!
Here are some wet goslings in the water weeds - they're Canadas by the way.

A monument to a brave man killed in 1910 while attempting to stop a runaway horse. This spot is today next to a very busy main road. How different it must have been in his day.



Here is a close-up of the inscription, which reads:

NEAR THIS SPOT
ON THE 30TH MAY 1910
CAPT CHARLES CLAUDIUS-de la POER BERESFORD
ROYAL ENGINEERS
WAS KILLED
IN A BRAVE ATTEMPT TO STOP A RUNAWAY HORSE

Hats off to Capt. Charles Claudius-de la Poer Beresford (quite a name too).

Recently in this forum I learned what a blue jay looks like – and now, thanks to cinnam0n, I’ve seen a cardinal bird. Thanks, cinnam0n.

This is the courtyard of Somerset House in London – the home of art galleries like the Courtauld Institute and Hermitage Rooms, not to mention some of the top brass in Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs.

For many years from the age of 9 I went to school via this back entrance to Golders Green station. About 20 years ago they closed it and everyone has to walk half way round the block and go in the front entrance. They also had a separate ticket office so now they all have to funnel through a tiny room instead of having two separate streams of commuters. Progress...

My sister and I planned an evening of scrapbooking tonight at a local shop, but when we arrived no one was there. After waiting awhile we headed back to my place, ordered pizza and sat on my deck and had a good time anyway!

This is all the kit I take with me on one of these outings, sitting on the deck waiting for me to take it inside. I carried less than this for four days in Ottawa last month!

Back at the Buddhist Nunnery(sorry folks this is the last one I will post).
This lotus thingie is in the middle of the complex, it is burning incense all day . Through the wrought iron shapes you can see part of the Buddha statues which are not supposed to be photographed.

There aren't many of these around anymore. We call 'em phone booths, not boxes...

THe old windmill that used to supply the house with water - a big windstorm blew it to pieces about ten years ago and it was replaced with an electric pump. It makes the eeriest sound when it creaks away in the wind.

Stunning photo up there Cinnamon!

Didn't know you scrapbooked, Liz, that black toolbox looks very handy.

Has anyone else found that taking these photos makes you appreciate your surrounds a bit more and take more notice of things? That windmill has always been there but i can't think of the last time i actually *saw* it.

Being a holiday destination I think many people just assume I am a tourist.

HAHAHA! Well, I am the opposite - I see several good photo-ops every day and have not yet gotten into the habit of carrying my camera with me. Last night I was driving to get my daughter at work and saw the most beautiful sunset, but alas, couldn't capture it.
Jane, you have lucky friends to receive such nice cards.
I think ren is secretly considering becoming a Buddhist nun....

Another view of Golders Green Station, this is the old 102 stop on Finchley Road where I waited for the bus home from school from 1969 onwards. This is the H2 Hampstead Garden Suburb hoppa which is the only bus that uses this bay nowadays.

My sister got me started when I moved back to Canada in '05, and I was hooked immediately. We each have one of the black toolboxes - she found them at a Liquidation Warehouse for a very good price. They are, as you say, very handy!

A view taken while out cycling yesterday. The plateau to the left on the horizon is where we cycled to before heading off in the general direction of home. It was a warm and dry day but note the colour of the sky. When are we going to get some sunshine?!!

Nice heather in there Martin. That reminds me, I must go to the north coast to see if the heather is out there, it can be gorgeous.

For you crafty ladies, this arrived today, there are three layers so 75 stamps in total.

I'm intrigued Sue, what is it, what size is it, and what does your 'crafty ladies' comment mean?
Here's a view down the Lea Navigation Canal from one of the locks near here.

I think we "crafty ladies" should just keep you wondering, picqero!
