In memorium of Armistice Day, and in appreciation for all veterans for their service.
When we were in England in 2018, the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, there was a very moving memorial installation based on poppies. It was an amazing work of art, both in the creation of every individual poppy and the very careful placement to get the overall effect.

One really fun thing to notice when traveling is how people get around. I live in an area where it seems like all the cars look pretty much the same. Here is a gallery of some of the variety I saw while visiting my son recently in a small-ish Chinese city. Click on an image to see it larger.
I really admire how many options people have beyond taking the bus and owning a full size car.
I think the South Atlantic in these pictures shows a wide variety of the colors in Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge for this week: Teal, Aqua, Seafoam, Turquoise. These pictures were taken at the Volunteer Point Wildlife Refuge in the Falkland Islands.
