Rodney's Pillar

I went for a walk today with my five year old daughter to Rodney's Pillar.
This is a monument on the Breidden Hill to the Admiral Rodney of the British Navy and was built in 1782 to celebrate the Admiral's victory over the French fleet in the West Indies. The ships used in the battle were apparently built from the oak trees of the Breidden Hill area.
It was a seven mile drive from my home followed by a walk up to the top of twelve hundred feet.
And it never rained until we got back to the car!

The photos are all lovely and atmospheric. The one of your daughter reminds me of the pose I struck when visiting the Angel of the North in September :-)

Wow. The story is interesting to me. I just forgot about oak trees used for ship building. And while I never heard of the Admiral before, the people there must have admired him a great deal to erect this monument.

Your daughter is adorable! You've got some great shots here - it's a very picturesque spot. Thanks for sharing!

...that first photo is stellar (they all are, but your daughter is so cute with her arms out, and adding in the drama of the clouds and beautiful green grass makes it special). It's a beautiful monument as well.
