“Reflection must be reserved for solitary hours; whenever she was alone, she gave way to it as the greatest relief; and not a day went by without a solitary walk, in which she might indulge in all the delight of unpleasant recollections.”
Jane Austen

Travel theme : Smoke and mirrors

wing mirror This elaborate wing mirror was on a coach in Hungary. Not sure if it made the drivers life any easier and it looks as if a bulb or something was missing also…!

my own wing mirror and I had to slow down to let the pony club pass me. (I must have more or less stopped to take the picture!) 🙂

Someone had moored up this barge along the local canal and was living there quite nicely, smoke belching out of a tiny chimney
