Almost Wordless Wednesday - 125














This photo was taken by the daughter of my good friend at work. When I saw it, I knew I had to post it for my Remembrance Day Wordless Wednesday. And she graciously said yes.

"My husband and I were living in England through the Canadian Forces," my friend's daughter writes. "We took a trip with my husband's parents to France & Belgium to tour around Canadian WWI & WWII sites, specifically Normandy D-Day beaches, Vimy Ridge and Ypres. While visiting the Vimy Ridge memorial we also visited several of the landmark's cemeteries. You'll see that I caught a picture of a wild bunny on the grave of a Royal Marine, just two down from an Unknown Canadian Solider."

Oh wow. That's an awesome picture even without the quote. I'm surprised she was able to get that shot without spooking the bunny.

My great grandfather survived Vimy, so many of them didn't.

That is a beautiful, thought-provoking shot. Looks like the bunny is reading the headstone.

If I get to nothing else on my bucket list, I must get to the Normandy beaches.

The bunny pic=priceless

And the post above... I loved all your quotes, but especially the Michael Caine one about when you reach the top, that's when the climb begins.
