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.

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’ 🙂

 

Tower of London ‘rent a bike’ collection.

The peloton nearing the end of the

Cadel Evans Classic last year.

Support vehicles and bikes.

 

Four laps of Geelong to go.

Outdoor entertainment at Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe.

This group of young entertainers danced and

on the last day of what we thought was

our first and last visit to Africa.

Week 1 Signs

Signs from Australia, Botswana,

Great Britain and France.

A tradesman’s sign, or service provided,

above his/her shop door.

 

No fast crossings.

 Personally, I think we are more likely to say “G’day”

 

A tea-room in The Somme.

My favourite sign in London.

Not certain exactly where, however,

we were on our way to the Apple store.

Week 119

People

Over the past twelve months, or so,

we have seen people doing many things.

Sun-baking on a stone beach at Nice.

 ~~~~~

Many of us grumble that our early entry to

the Palace of Versailles was not that privileged…

until we completed our tour and sighted

the line of people waiting to enter.

 

More people at Menin Gate Last Post Ceremony.

 

 By comparison, to some of the European sites we visited,

London’s Trafalgar Square

was almost empty.
