Lovely butterfly pic, Patricia, lots of them about lately, veriety of colour :)

Mac - undies, all so impressive :wink: couldn't decide which set I would go for :?
White vest in centre - very attractive, blue long johns also very fetching, but washed out look of faded brown y-fronts and vest, a definite winner :D
Green Cardigan, also very stunning, I'm sure his mother would be proud :lol:

Good close up of statue, Bob, hadn't noticed it before :)

I used the Atlantic Tower as my base many times when returning up there. It used to be a Trust House Forte establishment which our company had a corporate deal with.
Knew the Pig well and the monument, just couldn't place it :roll: Ken

Below, island near Helsinki built as a sea fortress in the 18th Century, still inhabited today! Second photo is the Camppi Cathedral, (think that's the name) looks a splendid place :)

Hi Shelagh the church is called The Temppeliaukio Church or easier name Church of the Rock or Rock Church :)
The only reason that I can spell it is I have the English language brochure about it on my knee in front of me :lol: :lol:
We then went on to see the Jean Sibelius monument in Toolo Hesinki
We were there nearly exactly 2 years ago then we went across the Gulf of Finland for 3 fantastic days in St Petersburg arriving just in
time for my 73rd birthday.

Morning Shelagh,
The Island fortress is Suomenlinna , roughly translated as Finnish Castle.
Thanks for the memories, you have covered all the worthwhile tourist visit spots in Helsinki. :D Ken

Thanks for extra info regarding name of Cathedral, Matt, think the wooden Cathedral in town centre may be Kamppi?

Fabulous photograph, Ken, those poor people, having to walk for days to reach their venue,
Probably been preparing for ages for this social event.
All that distance, walking barefooted, makes one feel truly humbled, and grateful for all that we have!
Keep the pictures coming Ken :)

Bob - Lovely photo of the "Pig & Whistle!" :D

Ken, Both you & Janette are a lot braver than I would be if
I came across such a pair. Good for you! I do however
notice that there were certain "Perks" for some regarding
the "Group" photo!!! :oops: :roll: :D

We have just returned from Lew's Family Reunion in Johnson City,
Tennessee, which I was told, started in 1954 - There were about 45
that attended and now it is first cousins and their children that are
the ones continuing same.We did, however, have a great time
and Lew thoroughly enjoyed visiting with all his "Folks!" The food
was absolutely unbelievable! Those Country people certainly know
how to cook and of course, it helps that it is all fresh from their
garden and farms, even the meat!
Here is a photo of just all the first cousins.............

Lew's younger bro, Glen, is first on the left and his sister, Kona is holding a red flask!

Nice family gathering Patricia. :D Ken

Re my pic of the dancers in PNG, it was hard to miss the girls as most were dressed that way. There was,in total, dancers from seven different tribes and some of the men were asked to cover up before meeting us. I was happy they did :oops: K
