There's a pub nearby. I wonder if these geese are expecting table service?

Until last weekend I didn't even know this little chapel existed. And it'd been in my home town for over a century!

Beautiful pictures everyone! Leau, you really live in a gorgeous area, and Au-Naturel, I knew West Virginia had some beautiful scenic areas and your pictures prove it!

This is one of many buldings at Fort Worden Military Reservation in Washington State. Fort Worden is where the movie An Officer and a Gentleman with Richard Gere was filmed. You may recognize this building from the movie.

This is the RCMP Barracks and offices at Waterton National Park. Nice place to have to go to work.

If you drive along every road sooner or later you see a gem amongst the pebbles, house wise.



This one's in Hendon, and the large window extends down another floor to a basement.

Here's another image from the history re-enactment week-end I attended. This is my own period, English Civil War, and these are Royalist cavalry troopers.

Thanks ClaraSue! I've traveled fairly extensively throughout the states east of the Mississippi and in my unbiased ("unbiased" in that I'm not a native West Virginian) opinion, West Virginia is one of--if not--the most beautiful states in the east and Pocahontas County is, without a doubt, the most beautiful county in the state.




This is a shot of one of the many lovely areas within West Virginia's largest state park. Built by the CCC back in the '30s, Watoga State Park, encompasses over 10,000 acres including an 11 acre lake.

I went walkabout today to take some photos for the "Walls" theme - and took so many I can't decide which one to use, yet. This is less a wall than a building facade, that was preserved when the building collapsed as work was being done on it about twenty years ago. The original building dated to the nineteenth century.



Here's a link to a photo of the plaque giving the full story. I hope it's legible.

I agree, the pictures get better and better.
There is only one place to have proper fish and chips in HK, so, Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you... today's lunch:

Lovely grub indeed, Ren. I wish I had some in front of me right now. Yummy!

Here is a glimpse into the subway/metro station (a 3 minutes walk from my home) that I use daily for going to work or other very important destinations .

Congratulations Sue, and good to see your daughter.

Here are some typical art deco houses in Hendon. At least the white one has the original windows.

It should be a criminal offence to fit modern windows in these superbly architectured houses; thank goodness some owners maintain the original character!
Here's the last in my series of images of last week-end's history re-enactment - a WWI German triplane. You can see all 120+ images I took at Festival-of-History

Congratulations to your daughter and son-in-law, Sue.

I love the shots of West Virginia, Au_Naturel.

This is the Old Mint House at Pevensey in Sussex. Itís now an antique shop.

I was on my way out today when I took this one of Winston. He seems to be deciding between reading and watching TV whilst I'm away.

Gnawra quite thought her birthday came early , as I gave her a lamb bone as big as her head today.
I will add that I kept my eye on her and took it away towards the end, as I know that lamb bones could splinter and cause problems.

In Hampstead Garden Suburb the rules stop any house being changed from the original, so ours and many others like it all looked as they were built, although a couple now have put on dodgy front doors. They don't enforce the rules as strongly as they used to there but they usually work. Everywhere else it seems a free for all and although you can fit double glazing that looks original as a couple of neighbours here have done they are a tiny minority. I've always lived in one, this is #4!

Thank you, I am glad you're enjoying them.

I wish I could say that this is the view from my front porch...




...but I don't have a front porch.

Actually, this is the view from the lookout tower at Droop Mountain Battlefield State Park.
