Just another Sunday

I’ve been time travelling today: First I celebrated the 6th birthday of a little girl who was born in 1899. Then I ogled the handsome young cyclists of the Tour de France in 1950. Next I admired the new white cape and ‘Kepi’ worn by the French police men at night from 1949 onwards and then I finished off by watching the Russian troops march through a French town when they joined the First World War effort. Not bad for a quiet Sunday.
How about you?

It sounds like a lovely Sunday. We're having some unpleasant weather here, and all we've done so far is have a nice breakfast and read the Sunday Papers. And it's almost lunch time. Very relaxing.

quixotic politicking on the interweb, and lots of motorway miles. Best bit was brewing up tea with condensed milk on the Trangia at Hopwood Park Services, and watching a huge flock of wagtails.

Cas: Glad you enjoyed your Sunday. Who was doing the cooking?

Dru: We sometimes used to have coffee made with evaporated milk when I was young. I saw a wagtail in our street the other day. Usually they hang around the park or the bus station in town (next to the park)

Caroline: No shops here on sundays and most of Mondays, but the beach and the monuments can get quite busy.
