Chris cooked a terrific Thanksgiving dinner. There were about 12 of us around the table. This is the view from the entry foyer.

Nighttime photography is fun and frustrating. A tripod is an absolute necessity. If not a tripod then a sturdy wall. The first photo of hotels at Sun Moon Lake in Taiwan used the latter method.
The next two are peacocks near Sun Moon Lake in Taiwan. They knew I was impressed. Just check out those expressions.
Autumn is a lovely time in D.C. The leaves change much later than in New England. These are from sunrise this morning. The first shows fog lifting from the Potomac with the Washington Monument (still closed) in the distance.
And finally the trees in the small lawn in front of the Jesuit Residence. Over twenty years ago I bought mom six of the red bushes called burning bushes. The turn a spectacular crimson color as the weather turns cold. These things can grow to tremendous size if not trimmed.
Will be in Plymouth over the weekend. Another homily in the offing and perhaps some photos.

The first two photos are from the cemetery in Sevenhill, South Australia. The color photo shows the tombstone of a prominent Polish woman (there is a large Polish community not too far away) whose gravestone has half of the Polish falcon and half of the papal seal. I got this directly from the man who carved many of the stones in the cemetery when we ran into each other as I was taking photos.
The next is the cemetery attached to St. Mary of the Angels Church in Port Lincoln, South Australia.
