Skywatch




The weather has been foul over in the UK this week and round where I work mostly foggy though today was a bit of an exception and we had sun. I thought I would show some sky's from when my wife & I went out for the day last month. See if you can recognise any of the places I went past.


Bit of and Icon this

Need a head for heights on this one


Even more on this place

Feeling hungry

Slow! Araf






Road Trip


A couple of months ago while my wife & I were in Wales we decided to have a trip to Aberystwyth so I thought I'd show some of what I saw out of the window.




The mountain road




just seems to go on for ever






miles of unspoilt land





and stunning valleys





this part was like a roller coaster ride, I even took video which I need to edit





at the bottom was more valley




and old mine workings
Finally we neared the coast & Aberystwyth. I'll show the return another week

Remembrance day Parade


On remembrance day I went to Newbury  with my wife. Like many other towns & villages up and down the country it had it's parade which I went along to watch. It's the first time I have seen one in a long time

 After the service the parade started with the Royal British Legion





















Next up seem to be the church choir as that was were they were off to next,they were followed by the town council and mayor who were walking slower than a funeral procession

 These two guys were ex forces and were barking out orders you could hear in the next town






another shot of the mace bearers





The Veterans part of the parade





Hero's from the past





and a few of the more able bodied still marching on






just like they were still in the forces





Sargent's at Arms





The Army marches through


Later after the church service the army marched down Northbrook Street taking a salute from a Senior officer as they went by.

Murals by the Altar


If you follow My Graveplace Blog  may have noticed these beautiful murals that have been done by I presume the local children for a Nativity scene. I felt they were worth showing to a wider congregation.


I do like the Shepherd with the woolly sheep

Firework Friday


Here in the UK the 5th November is famous for Guy Fawks night or Bonfire Night when we let off fireworks. The bonfires date back to the Gunpowder plot and after the King proclaimed we should celebrate with bonfires ever 5th November and the tradition had carried on. Usually the weekend either side of the 5th is when the big organised displays are on so last Saturday night my Wife & I watch the one from where I work from the hill overlooking the site. Here are a few of the fireworks I saw. Forgive me but it's the first time I have taken photos of fireworks.
