Oh my gosh! I've been so busy, I missed a lot of pictures!  The LVs look like they're having a lot of fun!  Wow, cinnamon Teal, that is one lucky dog!  AD and Adi-- teehee!  So many pretty flowers!  I always love library shots and old buildings! And those pictures of Anana are so colorful!

phoenixfiredesigns - I definitely want to see more of the sunken gardens!

Natasjadreams - Antwerp - D'ood is getting a seriously cultural trip, lucky thing!

Alexampersandra - you must be very excited with the new library!

waterbaby - very very pretty trees!

AD and Adi - Is adorable! Are they long distance and writing love letters to each other? Or do we get to see a date!

And here is our something local photo for this week:



Well, local to our journey anyway! We passed stonehenge, and it was too good of an opportunity to miss!

"Did you know...

Stonehenge was constructed in three phases.
It has been estimated that the three phases of the construction required more than thirty million hours of labour.
Speculation on the reason it was built range from human sacrifice to astronomy.

Age estimated at 3100 BC
Location Wiltshire, UK
OS Reference SU 122 422
Type of stone Bluestone, Sarsen, Welsh Sandstone
Worship Lunar, Solar"
more information can be found here

Plenty more photos of Scarlett checking out my Aunt's garden can be found on my blog post

Paper:
I visited Stonehenge some 4 years ago and I remember croooowds of people around it- how is it possible there are no tourists in your photo? Is it magic?

Me and Aussie saw the Czech musical Kleopatra (about Cleopatra's life Wink). I last saw it as a little girl and it made me love ancient Rome and its history. It's still my passion so I was happy to have a chance to see it again and even to show it to Aussie Smiley


Here: http://aussie-in-bohemia.blogspot.cz/2013/06/kleopatra.html are a few more photos and the videos from the musical.

Violet Anne got to go to the opening of the Real Pirates exhibit (Buccaneer Bash) and Dead Girl Derby this weekend!  Pictures will be forthcoming, but there was also a lot of home improvement and I'm too tired to deal with it now...  O.o

Recently we went on another hike with our neighbor Stuart and his dog Dutch (my dog Bella's on the right):



This time we went up to the Hollywood sign...well, up to behind the sign; you can't actually get touching-close to it.  There are also trails where you come out beneath the sign, looking up at it.  Part of the way we went is dirt road, part of it is paved, all of it is switch-back curvy and somewhat steep, with views first east and south to downtown, Hollywood, West LA, and beyond:





...and then suddenly you're looking north into Burbank and the San Fernando Valley, with Forest Lawn Cemetery directly below:



Keep a-goin' up and eventually you make one last left turn and there's a cyclone fence ahead, through which you get your first glimpse of the letters of the sign:



Several seconds later you're at the top of Mt. Lee overlooking the Hollywood sign, with about 3/4 of Los Angeles spread before you (there's a lot more to the left of this photo) and a great view of Lake Hollywood (which is actually a reservoir):



I've lived in LA most of my adult life and part of my growing up and this was the first time I'd taken any of the trails to the sign!

That is an interesting perspective of Hollywood.  What it represents is larger than life, and there you are, looking down on it all like it's an ant farm.  I'd like to take that hike if I get the chance to go there.
