Sue’s Word a Week Challenge: Anyone for chess?

This pic was taken on the deck of our cruise ship as we sailed into Amsterdam at the end of our Rhine cruise.

Some of the houses we saw in Le Petite France in Strasbourg, were decorated with squares and crosses.

With their solid, half-timbered exteriors and rather small windows, I thought they were really charming, and they reminded me of some of the Tudor style houses I’ve seen in England.

My last squares pic is a fun painting done by my sister. Lately, she had been experimenting with different styles, and I really like this. I’m so proud of her. She has been chosen to represent South Africa in an International Arts and Culture exhibition in Russia, and leaves for Moscow on 23rd of this month, together with dozens of her paintings.
