Went to Ludlow, Shropshire on the 28th (my birthday).
The weather was awful - it was windy with heavy showers and the temp was just 12c (54f)! Not much of a summers day.

We had a brief sunny interlude and I took these ordinaryish pictures, but I think you can see how pretty (and old) the town is.

I'll go back and take some more on a nicer day.

Kadyanda is a ruined (Lycenian I believe) city above the village of Yesiluzumlu, Turkey.
It has a stunning mountain setting at about 2,000 feet.

It is about 2,500 years old and is accessed by a very narrow and quite harrowing in places mountain road.

It has baths, tombs and amphitheatre et al.

It is more or less 'undiscovered' with very few visitors although there is a 'guide' who sits there alone in a hut (he was sleeping when we arrived).

Turkish Mountains

We stayed (in Turkey) in a villa in the mountains.
Here are a few pictures of the mountains.
Notice the clear skies - something we don't see much of in Britain! But all the same I do love the British weather for some strange reason.

Back home from Turkey.
Nice country, very picturesque. Friendly people and very hot weather.
Took quite a few photo's and the first two I'll post are of the humble House Sparrow!
More pics to follow, hope you like them.
