A different view of the park

In the past I've photographed the wildflower meadows, but the park also has meadows of grasslands. This year they mowed a path through this one along a hillside:

First sunset picture of the year

At least, I think so. Shot it Sunday evening.

Live music Saturday Night in Greenbelt

The brother of an old friend of ours has a rock band called Second Sole, and we have enjoyed their music many times over the years. When we heard they were playing at the New Deal Café in Greenbelt, we toke advantage of the opportunity to listen and dance to them once again.

Alan plays lead guitar and does most of the vocals. The drummer is new and is very good.

I took this last picture of the front yard today:

Trip to England and Wales

At the end of April, Pam, Greg, my sister Elaine and I flew to London. Rebecca joined us a day later, and we had a wonderful trip.

Elaine took this shot of Pam and me on the first day in St. James Park.

Elaine also took this one of Pam, Rebecca, Greg, and me with the Tower Bridge over the Thames in the background.

One day we took a side train trip into Llangollen, Wales where my grandfather was born. Pam took this photo of Rebecca, Elaine, me, and Greg, all grandchildren and great-grandchildren of David Jones. The setting was a bridge over the River Dee which runs through the town. The day was cold, wet, and windy, weather which I believe is not unusual there.
