Greeting Beverley,

You took us all along memory lane with this beauty, but you should have included some impersonal shots of your friends. Arches in bridges, or indeed in any structure create useful frames. This one is no exception.

In the US we have Thanksgiving on Nov. 22, do you celebrate the same date? The date commemorates the occasion 290 years ago when English Settlers had a 'thanksgiving dinner' at Plymouth Rock, Massachusetts. But it turns out, one year earlier at Berkeley Plantation in Virginia, English Settlers had prefigured the Puritans of Massachusetts. Finally, I just found out that Spanish Settlers celebrated thanksgiving 56 years earlier in St. Augustine, Florida.

Warm regards,

Default To batalay: Just for you

Thank you for your warm critique, Bulent.
Just for you, I have added a shot of my companions, taken a little earlier than the posted shot.

With regard to your question, the only big celebration that we observe in Nov. is Bonfire Night ,on Nov. 5th which, I'm sure you know, is in mempry of the time Gut Fawkes tried to blow up Parliament and the king. At this time we have huge bonfires, lots of fireworks and a Guy on top of the burning stack.

Have a good day,
Bev :-)
