Wordless Wednesday.

Our second and now obviously final visit in 2018 to St. Petersburg, Russia.

 The Lakhta Center is an 87-storey skyscraper built in the northwestern neighbourhood of Lakhta in Saint Petersburg, Russia. Standing 462 metres tall, it is the tallest building in Russia, the tallest building in Europe, and the sixteenth-tallest building in the world.

The second day we were there England were playing Croatia in the football World Cup semi finals (they lost!). We had been asked if we wanted tickets but declined, and looking at the huge queues I am very glad we did.

Wordless Wednesday - Clapper Bridge

 Old 1780s bridge at Postbridge, Dartmoor and known as New Bridge.

Much older bridge, thought to be 12th century! Tin was mined on the moors and carried by pack horses who crossed the clapper bridges to take it to Tavistock, an ancient stannary town.

Wordless Wednesday - Bucklers Hard.


On the banks of the Beaulieu River, in the heart of the New Forest, you will find the peaceful haven of Buckler's Hard which remains untouched by the passage of time.

Once a thriving shipbuilding village where ships for Nelson's fleet at Trafalgar were built, now Buckler's Hard is a tranquil haven, perfect for escaping the hustle and bustle of modern life.

Amble down the high street to watch the boats sailing by on the Beaulieu River or, if you're feeling more energetic, follow the scenic 2 mile footpath between Buckler’s Hard and Beaulieu.
