You go without taking
My state remains the same
helpless without you
Return me to you
in you I belong
The tides at St Michaels Mount
The Tides are caused by the action of the heavenly bodies, principally the sun and the moon. When they are in line with the earth the attraction is multiplied, announcing spring tides, this corresponds with the period of highest tides ; on the contrary, if the sun and the moon form a right angle (in quadrature), the attraction is reduced and we are in neap tides, the period of lowest tidal movement
A quick stop in London for the day, time for a few hours sightseeing before heading to Hong Kong on our way home to Australia
Well Paris has come to and end so I thought I would leave it with The Louvre courtyard at night.
Thank you to Everyone for all your fantastic comments I have really enjoyed them.
My Last Night is Paris was spent catching the metro, visiting the places I wanted to get a Photograph at night off
The The Pont Alexandre is definitely a must see especially at night if you ever go to Paris
The Pont Alexandre III is an arch bridge that spans the Seine, connecting the Champs-Élysées quarter and the Invalides and Eiffel Tower quarter, widely regarded as the most ornate, extravagant bridge in Paris. It is classified as a historical monument.
Who can come to paris and not see the Eiffel Tower ? It is so impressive as soon as you see it you just go WOW
we went to the very top and WOW again.
Had to come back at night especially at nine o’clock as the tower sparkles !! amazing sight
Today the streets of Paris , above the fantastic Le Pure Cafe
where I had one of the best steaks I have ever had
A walk along the Champs-Élysées ,I can see where places like Rodeo Drive got there inspiration from. All the well known shopping brands are here along the Champs-Élysées, and then at the and you come to the Arc de Triomphe. Huge crowds again and cars and buses everywhere.
From WikipediaFrom Wikipedia
The Arc de Triomphe de l’Étoile is one of the most famous monuments in Paris. It stands in the centre of the Place Charles de Gaulle (originally named Place de l’Étoile), at the western end of the Champs-Élysées. It should not be confused with a smaller arch, the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel, which stands west of the Louvre. The Arc de Triomphe (in English: “Triumphal Arch“) honours those who fought and died for France in theFrench Revolutionary and the Napoleonic Wars, with the names of all French victories and generals inscribed on its inner and outer surfaces. Beneath its vault lies the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier from World War I.
Paris today was the The Musée du Louvre and the courtyard outside, also just wandering the streets of Paris
taking in the sights and sounds. The city is very crowded at the moment so lots of patience needed to get the pictures you want.
Paris, and it certainly is an amazing City.
My first two Photographs from my walk today. More to come and hopefully some night shots in the next couple of days. !!
The Gold on the bridge below, that you see is actually thousands of padlocks !!
Dugald Stewart Monument
View of Edinburgh from Calton Hill
Ready to Leave Edinburgh behind. Next stop Paris
Dugald Stewart Monument is a memorial to the Scottish philosopher Dugald Stewart (1753–1828). It is situated on Calton Hill overlooking Edinburghcity centre and was completed in August 1831.
The National Monument
The monument dominates the top of Calton Hill, just to the east of Princes Street. It was designed during 1823-6 by Charles Robert Cockerell andWilliam Henry Playfair and is modelled upon the Parthenon in Athens. Construction started in 1826 and, due to the lack of funds, was left unfinished in 1829. This circumstance gave rise to various nicknames such as “Scotland’s Disgrace”, “Edinburgh’s Disgrace”, “the Pride and Poverty of Scotland”, “Tait’s Folly” and “Edinburgh’s Folly”.
