Cee-BW-Challenge-Fences-n-Gates

~~~~~

First up…

…the type of fence I think of when I hear the word.

A back gate into Geelong Grammar School.

 

That rather flimsy fence was all that

separated animals and visitors.

A sturdy Hobbiton Gate

A Westminster Abbey gate.

My favourite gate….Menin Gate,

Ypres, Belgium

This young lady was brought out to entertain

a group of tourists in Brugge.

Five minutes after she commenced playing

there was no sign of her.

The guide and his small group

had also blended into the crowd.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Renewal

~~~~~

renewal

an instance of resuming something
after an interruption.
~~~~~

One of the most moving sites we visited

was next to the Prowse Point Military Cemetery,

in Belgium.

Prowse Point was of one of

the 1914 Christmas truces.

Apparently both sides were singing Christmas Carols

and eventually decided to lay down

their arms for the day.

  However all that changed once the British Command

heard of what was going on.


They ordered the renewal of hostility and soldiers from both sides

of the battle who had formed friendships for a short while

were again trying the kill each other.

So sad!
