Too funny about the girl at McDonalds..... ironically; I have a friend who calls herself a vegeterian; but she eats chicken and fish; just not beef or pork
I have come across people like that before and I never get it. I always tend to describe myself as a "non-meat eater" or a "demi-vegetarian", as I still eat fish, so to say I'm vegetarian isn't 100% correct.
Friday 16 September – part three: posing from nearly extinct animals in the UK!
Filled up and with a restroom visit under our belts, after the attendant saw we’d purchased and let us in and we headed outside again.
Mark spotted a piano outside...
... then we saw a guy playing another one. It was all very odd and no doubt part of a festival.
We wandered back towards the car, getting lots of photos on the way.
We also found some red squirrels, which was a real treat for us, as they’re nearly extinct at home. They were attacked by the more ferocious grey squirrels, which were introduced to the UK and that’s all you see in the wild now.
you are seeing right – I did get him full flight!
Once we’d finished photographing our posing pals, we programmed Son of Tim for the City Park, with me getting photos on the way. I was staggered to see so many beautiful old properties right in the city centre. It was a really pleasant change, as in too many other American cities, things like this just didn’t survive and made way for skyscrapers. It always amazes me how much Americans love history, but somehow they don’t seem to protect it, if you know what I mean...
What a cute little squirrel! Love that in-flight shot!
Oh, I am so envious. I wish I had the ability to say, "We're off to France for the day!" Hope you have fun!
It's a nice perk of living in the UK - I could also say that about Belgium if I wanted and we've done day trips by plane to the Netherlands and Ireland before now. We'll be doing a day trip to Scotland with my best buddy in June!
Great pics! I had a friend recently return from a trip to Paris and I've really been dying to go since all the great things she has told me about her trip; not to mention the beautiful pics..... Don't think I'll be going any time soon though.... Have a great trip! I'd love to see a few pics from your *day trip*...
