Saturday, 5th November

Institute for Advanced Study

Possibly the Institute for Advanced Squirrels. Princeton seems to have more squirrels than people. Unfortunately, I'd left my telephoto lens at home so I didn't get any photos of them.

Light on the Mersey

Wednesday, 16th November

HMS Grimsby left earlier in the week but has been sailing up and down in Liverpool Bay since then. Last night, the Hunt class minehunter HMS Brocklesby arrived in the Mersey and has been sailing up and down the whole time at about walking pace. What's with all the mine hunting?

Tuesday, 22nd November

I've been visiting Kita since Thursday 17th. You'll have to make do with cat photos as we've both been ill and not gone anywhere.

Strategic Air and Space Museum, Ashland, NE

We went back to the Strategic Air and Space Museum to see and exhibit about Joe Beyrle, who was an American paratrooper who was captured by the Nazis, escaped, was found by the Russians and fought with them to Berlin before being repatriated. I took a few photos of the planes; there's a much more comprehensive set from the first time I visited.

Monday, 28th November

We went to the Sunken Garden but they'd dug up all the plants. No, seriously. All the plants. The Hamann Rose Garden, across the road, still had a few things to photograph, though they'd emptied the brutalist fountain for winter.
