Today I’m packing for a week’s cruise on the Rhine River, which will take us from Basel to Amsterdam. My 100-year-old mom-in-law is treating her close family, and of course she’s coming along too. I’m so looking forward to seeing the stately German castles which stand close to the river bank, and we’re going to do tours of those in Marksburg and Heidelberg. There’ll be a stop off in the magnificent city of Cologne, and we’ll experience the lush landscape of the Black Forest region. It’s many years since I’ve seen Holland’s famous windmills and beautiful canals, In France I’ll be seeing Strasbourg for the first time. and then we’re promised that we’ll experience the nightlife of Rüdesheim’s Drosselgosse, which has been described as ‘the merriest street in the world’. I’m sure the six of us are going to have a load of fun.
Sonel’s B&W Photo Challenge is coming to an end, so I decided that I really must take part in it this week. Here are a few photos of some of the windows and doors I saw on my recent visit to Cornwall.
I really fell in love with the leaded windows at St Michael’s Mount, which is said to be the ‘jewel in Cornwall’s crown’.
Here are beautiful windows in the 15th century church which stands in the grounds of Landhydrock House, the “finest house in Cornwall.”
The harbour town of Polperro has so many picturesque cottages, and I just had to capture some of those old doors and windows.
The Blue Peter Inn, described as “the last pub before France”, is where we had dinner on the last evening of our holiday. Hubby had the Cornish pasty and a Guinness, and I had home-made fish cakes and a beer shandy.
So tomorrow I’ll be off on yet another adventure, and I haven’t even finished telling you about my last one. I’ll try to pop in on some of you, but if you don’t see me around, you’ll know where I am. Have a great weekend.
