very interesting cloud on no.32!
Hi thanks for the comments, yes its strange I seem to get very unusual clouds everywhere I go, if you want to see some very strange ones have a look at Nash Point and especially Severn Bridges (the cloud just seemed to appear from nowhere, seemed to stay in one position and then slowly disappeared, I put it down to aliens) in the travels link. All the best, Ian
I’ll look at it right away… I think if you look for it, you’ll see it… (I put it down to dragons or angels 😉 you’ll see why in a post soon to come… 🙂
I look forward to reading that post, I copied and pasted this piece of information about the country I live in, our flag is a red dragon, here’s a bit of the history…
The red Welsh dragon “Y Ddraig Goch” owes its origins to folklore and Arthurian legend. Originating from a serpent representing the Welsh God Dewi, Celtic King Arthur was said to have had a dream about a red dragon (symbolically representing Wales) which slayed a white dragon (which represented the Saxon invaders). In later times a crude red dragon design was adopted by Prince Llywelyn of Gwynedd in the 7th Century and taken into battle by Welsh hero Prince Owain Glyndwr in conflicts with the invading English. In later history, at the Battle of Bosworth, Welsh-born King Henry VII (Henry Tudor, crowned 1485) unfurled the red dragon, which he in turn had adopted as his own emblem. As such, the beloved red dragon has always represented the defiant Welsh nation; iconising Wales’s unique cultural and historic heritage as a proud and ancient nation which has long survived external threat. The Welsh dragon is often associated with the motto, “Y Ddraig Goch a ddyry Gychwyn” – or “The red dragon will show the way”.
Thanks a mill for this, it’s a great and beautiful tale and it never ever fails to enchant and intrigue me! I believe it to be true, follow the red dragon, it shows the way…
It has more meaning to me than one would think…
Photo 32 is breath taking! And of course, the Route 66 Gift Shop is great.
Thank you for the kind comments. Yes that road trip was fantastic, 2011, 2012 and 2013 were also great but to drive Route 66 and to get my leather waistcoat from Angel and Thelma’s shop in Seligman (I wear with pride when out on the motorbike). Roll on next year.
