Not forgotten


 
These wonderful works of art grace the foreshore of Victoria Harbour on Vancouver Island, British Columbia and I think are a poignant reminder of the sacrifices made by servicemen and women around the world.

 
. . . and here is the famed Empress Hotel overlooking the Harbour.
 
For those of you who celebrate the tradition of Shrove Tuesday, I hope you get to sample some mouth-wateringly delicious pancakes today!

Those really are wonderful sculptures. One of my earliest clear memories is of my Dad coming home from service in the Navy (WWII...1945 ... Eons ago. ). So yeah, I loved these.
