I~~~~~

Our first evening in Europe and we were in Brugge… and had to walk back through beautiful

Het Zand Square

to our hotel.

 

If some one asked what was my

most memorable place in Europe…

 

Het Zand Square at twilight

would be right up at the top.

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL-Way

 

 

Way

While searching for this week’s post…

I found this sight-seeing bus…a way

for visitors to see Melbourne.

York’s signpost pointed the way to

various point in the city…

as did these signs on a

Freeway/Autobahn in Germany.

While visiting Fromelles we had to walk down this path…

to see the site of the Fromelles mass graves

which were recently exhumed and created

the Fromelles Military Cemetery.

 

Finally, this is the way to the

Toronto Avenue Military Cemetery

in Belgium.

I~~~~~

I  will never forget the morning I took these shots.

It was my first morning in London with MGW,

and while I turned to take these photos she disappeared.

 The crowd behind me was as dense

as the crowd in front of me. 

I had about twenty yards of clear vision. 

I did not know whether MGW had crossed

Westminster Bridge or followed

the white bus along the Thames River.

After the longest ten minutes in my life

MGW appeared on the bridge

wanting to know what I was doing! 

And why I was standing there at/near Big Ben.

Of course she had told me she was

crossing the bridge!!!!!!

I’m sure I did not have this problem back in 1976!!

Not a great variety of bikes this week.

However, they come from many locations.

On display at a nearby market day a few years back.

 

Some of Melbourne’s ‘rent a bike’ collection.

 

Brugge bikes.

Amsterdam.

MGW was nearly run down by

a motor scooter similar to this one.

It ran a red light.

After this incident we were told

the lights were/are only a ‘suggestion’ 🙂
