My best shot of Big Ben.

One of the highlights of the vacation we just enjoyed in London was spending the better part of one day at St. Paul’s Cathedral. We made the climb to the top “gallery;” more than 500 steps. Great view from up there (it’s that small ring atop the dome, below what appear from this angle to be a set of pillars supporting the top piece).

Perfect day for a bike ride. This is on the W&OD Trail, west of Leesburg, Va. Did a little more than 21 miles. Question: How come it felt like the wind was in my face both on the way out and back? Also, how come it seemed to be uphill both ways? 
Great ride.

Scotland’s glens are spectacular. This was on the way to Loch Ness on Monday.
