Cherry blossoms seem very far away today.  :( Our city is covered in slush and ice.

A trip out to Durrington walls, Woodhenge and Stonehenge this evening, the Wiltshire countryside is greening up nicely now, fields full of new born lambs up on the downs.   :bowler:

No far I know, but it's a start.

You all sure have a lot of Henges!  :)  Are you pretty close to them, so the trips out to them are short?

I bet he's never been to Carhenge.
You know I'm going to lose
And gambling's for fools
But that's the way I like it
Baby, I don't want to live forever.

Just a couple of bus journeys and some use of a folding bike, so fairly local.

Yeah henges are common in Wessex, a local farmer even dug one up on his farm.

I once had a girlfriend from Durrington. Lovely part of the country

Damn, I must admit to being very envious. A short journey to so many amazing places!

I used to work in Lexington Mass., scene of the first battle between Colonists and British army. In Spring time before the actual re-enactment of the battle we'd walk to the common and watch the re-enactments rehearsals. Pretty cool. Some of the original buildings are there, as I recall. I was there as a kid in boy scouts. We camped at a camp ground about a town away and hiked to Lexington then to the Concord Bridge for that battle re-enactment. Good stuff. Those events draw big crowds.

The closest I get to that sort of thing is Niagara on the Lake; lots of neat War of 1812 battlefields there, plus historical reinactors at Fort St. George ... I got this neat shot there, of a guy firing a tiny mortar.

Took a walk at the park today. Too many plebs on the path.  :mad:

That's why you need to buy your own park.

Back in Shenzhen for the first time in 4 years. Nice to be back in a decent climate. Traffic is horrific.

Went to the Ħal-Saflieni Hypogeum. Glad I waited to go to Malta till it was open again. Well worth it! Also glad that booked ahead as they had sign it was fully booked until 3 of July.
