For the weaving geeks. Have you seen this yet?

In mid-March I went on a "culture break" sponsored by Historic Royal Palaces. The second palace we visited was Hampton Court. Having been there many times, and taken hundreds of photos, I primarily focused on the special "roof tour" that we were given. Here are some photos from the two days we spent at Hampton Court.

On the way home from dinner tonight, I took this photo of the moon with my Nikon, 83x zoom, camera. Any ghost-like gray streaks are are the branches that framed the moon. Pretty good detail, I think.

Am looking forward to the (hopefully!) daily photos and comments about the process.

I've been taking "History of Royal Food and Feasting" with FutureLearn. It's a free, online course that is being repeated from a very successful first showing. The 5-week course is co-sponsored by the University of Reading and Historic Royal Palaces. Each week focuses on a different monarch, palace and foodstuffs: Henry VIII (Hampton Court), Elizabeth I (Tower of London), George I (Hampton Court), George III (Kew Palace), and Victoria (Kensington Palace). Now, Historic Royal Palaces is offering a 6-day adult learner "culture break" this coming March. How could I not sign up? So, back to England in 2017 for a quick trip - unless I decide to stay longer. Here's the outline of the culture break: http://www.hrp.org.uk/learning/adults/culture-breaks/#gs.KJHqg_E

The Eliza Jennings organization that runs The Renaissance Retirement Campus where I live has posted a number of autumn photos of scenes from around our grounds. If you'd like to see them, they are at http://tinyurl.com/zofxtkh .

I love where I live. It's a beautiful retirement community. The grounds and the sky can be incredible, not to mention the interesting animals: fox, deer, coyote, groundhogs, chipmunks, squirrels, waterfowl, garter snakes, raccoons, skunks, and more that I've probably forgotten!

For my cycling aficionado friends: don't try this at home. For other folk, this is why many of us like to watch professional bike racing!
