This street art in East London really gave me a chuckle.

If you want to see it for yourself, it adorns the side of Wingfield House in Virginia Road, London E2.

The Lavender Farm in Hitchin has a field of sunflowers too.  This one was smiling at me!

These beauties were spotted in a Devon resort.  I’m not sure that bikinis and devonshire clotted cream go together.

The Good Mother: 155m up, 155m down

The Good Mother stands guard over Marseille from its rocky promontory high above the city.  The views both up and down are spectacular.  The interior is no slacker either, having undergone a major restoration over 7 years, completing in 2008. This is an all-round highlight of any visit to Marseille.
