I’ve been away for a little while and I am a little busy at present. This means I haven’t posted to my blog so much. However here’s a shot to enjoy from the National Railway Museum in York .

No.It’s not where Ozzy and Sharon live. It was our next port of call on the Isle of Wight.
Osborne House is a former royal residence in East Cowes, Isle of Wight, UK. The house was built between 1845 and 1851 for Queen Victoria and Prince Albert as a summer home and rural retreat.

The Church of St Laurence. Denmark
The Church of St Laurence. Denmark, a photo by Davidap2009 on Flickr.
The church of St Laurence. Better known to Danes as “Tilsandede Kirke” or Sand buried church. The church has been in existence since the 13th century first recorded mention in 1387.
In 1795 the Danish King Christian VII gave permission for the church to be closed. It could not be protected from the enormous amounts of drifting sand.
The tower itself dates from the 15th century. However it was rebuilt in the 18th and 19th centuries. Following the demolition of the church the tower was left as a landmark for ships at sea and was whitewashed. The last burial in the church graveyard took place in 1810
