Lovely beach Sue, and not crowded with people (unless it's related to the same temperature we have here today, 11' we are told).

Here is the entrance to Golders Hill Park

I was just looking at some pictures from last summer and came across this one of the cake I made for my daughter's 16th birthday - the party had a tropical theme!

The St Brelade's Bay photos were all taken last week, so autumn temperatures. The only beach with people in the water tends to be St Ouen's with the surfers.

This is a church that was built in 1877 in Copper Canyon, Texas (near Dallas). The church was founded in 1846. There are new housing developments going in all around.



You can see the historical marker here.

I don't like Hallowe'en at all, but these two pens made me laugh.

Another, larger view.

This is a photo of some Canada Geese enjoying the Alfred Hole Goose Sanctuary in the Whiteshell Provincial Park. Alf Hole started this sanctuary back when Canada Geese were endangered. They certainly have made a comeback.

It's been a dull rainy day today, so I have reached back to the end of September for this shot of the CN Tower, taken from my seat at the Rogers Centre (formerly Skydome) when I went to the last Blue Jays game of the season.

Here is a tunnel I walked up many times as I arrived home at East Finchley station between 1965 and 1993

That's a very interesting marker board on Chinn's Chapel, Dave.
My offering of the day is this reflection, in the nearby River Lea, of an electricity pylon - or tower as it's referred to 'in the trade'.
For the technically minded it's a 400kV (400,000 volt) tension tower - as opposed to the more common suspension towers.

While on a tour in Los Cabos Mexico. We were taken to a glass blowing factory where they used recycled glass. They melted it down and the workers would make new bottles and glasses for restaurants and stores.



Here one of the workers is in the process of making a bottle.

Just a flower from my 'stock', perhaps it is time to go to the garden centre for some fresh shots.

Yes, and I have been wanting to get a picture for quite some time, but never had a camera in the car.

This is one of the newer buildings in downtown Belleville, snapped whilst I was waiting for my bus this afternoon.

The sign near this tree in Hong Kong Park says it is a Bottle tree and a native of Australia. (funny shapes these Ozzies have)

It always makes me smile when I see this little car travelling along the road. Today it was in the carpark when I went to the post office.

Today I attended the funeral of a respected friend, who was also my sailing instructor when I did the RYA Yachtmaster course many years ago.
Fred was also an officer in the Royal Naval Reserve and the Sea Cadet Corps, and was greatly respected in both.
I've never seen so many Naval dress uniforms as were worn at his funeral today!
This photo was taken about 25 years ago, when Fred, myself and a few others were sailing off south west England, and is my tribute to him.

When I got off the bus this morning a flock of birds started swooping around me, landing, and flying off again. I took a number of photos, but I particularly liked this one.

Beautiful photos, all, and my condolences for the loss of your friend, picqero - lovely photo you posted of him.

It's been a busy week and haven't taken any photos, and today I forgot my camera, which makes it REALLY hard to take photos. So here's one from Death Valley last winter. I waited a long time but not once did this raven say "Nevermore".

Another photo from one of our Caribbean cruises. These two ships were moored next to ours. The closest is the Sea Cloud and the farther and newer one is the Sea Cloud II.

If five year old boys had their own heaven this is what it would look like! Actually this is where the hills hoist was meant to go but Conor got to it first and he spends so much time there I can't take the area away from him

Lovely Copago, you brought a smile to my face thinking of my 3 boys at that age.

I did a double-take there, I thought it was a construction site! Tell your little man he had me fooled.
