ROUND ROBINS - 8 km from home




This theme was very easy for me. Just about a little less than 8 km (5 miles) south from our home is the famous battle field of Waterloo !





Good old Napoleon watches over the tourists





The Lion



A Bistro just in front

My Jack is Scottish and I always tease him that he would look cute in a skirt!

I was wondering what you would find. Your photos are always so interesting and colorful. I love the lion shot.

Hi Gattina,
Great shots. That third picture of all those stairs is awesome. I wouldn't want to go up them. I wouldn't make it! Have a great day!

WOW! What an interesting set of photos! I always enjoy seeing your photos, but these where especially great because of my love of history. LOVELY! I would just love to see it for myself one day. Thank you so much for bringing us such a lovely look at where you live!

Wow, it must be interesting to live near someplace that historic. I especially like the long stairway with the lion at the top. The hill or mount is almost like a Mexican pyramid. Wat it made after the battle?

That's a long walk up the hill! what a lovely historic place.
