First off, thank you so much for all the birtdays wishes from you guys ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

This week’s Fan Of.. is Coffee at the Kelpies. With some time off over my birthday, my wife & I were able to get out on our first longish ride of the year (50km). Although we’ve been out on our bikes with the trailer constantly over the winter, to go shopping & run errands, this was our first chance to really get out.

Working Horse Sculpture — PPAC #26

Overlooking the Marina on a rainy day — Pull Up a Seat #47 and PPAC #23

Hi all ๐Ÿ˜ƒ My entry for Xingfumamas Pull Up a Seat Challenge. There’s also a sculpture by the seat, so this is also my entry for PPAC, hosted this week by Marsha. There is no explanation for the sculpture; to me though it looks like the ruins of a church, particularly with the stained glass inserts ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
