Sunday-Stills-0912-Going-Back…

~~~~~

going back

(of a clock) be set to an earlier standard time,
especially at the end of summertime

~~~~~

 

In a few weeks, October 3 to be precise,

we are going to be thrown out of gear

for a few days as we go back to

Daylight Savings Time

which will last until then the

1st Sunday of April.

In 1976 I set off on my overseas trip

as was the norm in those days.

I spent a month touring around Great Britain,

before heading over to Canada,

my real destination.

In 2016 we returned to Great Britain,

for a few days, prior to crossing

the English Channel, from Dover,

for our European holiday.

***

It was not until we were home a few weeks

that I began thinking of going back

to France to visit the Western Front battlefields

where my Grandfather served during World War I.

 

In late May 2017, I again landed at Heathrow

where I boarded a London bound train to

St Pancras International Station.

At St Pancras, I boarded the Eurostar

for my trip across to France,

disembarking at Lille.

From Lille, it was only a 45-minute

train ride south to Arras.

  2. Wow, a poignant reminder of the sacrifices made world-wide to maintain order and freedom, Don. The French cemetery is sobering in its beauty and symbolism. Love the tongue-in-cheek fun of changing clocks again. We will fall behind sometime next month, sigh….it takes weeks for me to get used to the time change! Glad to have you back in my orbit for Sunday Stills! Have a great week.
