Our Calendar for 2015...

For a number of years, DH and I have had a calendar printed as a Christmas gift for family members. DH and I usually collaborate about which photos from our 'collection' to use, but at the end of last year, DH gave up on waiting for my input and went ahead with the photos that he had selected. I always say not to use any photos with me in them, but for 2015, a few 'got through'. :-)
The front cover...
The entrance to the Beatles Museum in Liverpool
January...
The HMS Victory, the Duke of Wellington's ship at Portsmouth
February...

The Blackpool Tower...
March...
The lovely gardens in front of the Calais Town Hall...


April...

The beautiful Sacre Couer in Paris...

May...
Doc Martin's cottage (the smaller one on the left) in Port Isaac...

June....

A narrow boat negotiating a lock on the Rochdale Canal in Hebden Bridge, Yorkshire...

July...

Photo time in the press interview room during our tour of Wimbledon...

August...not a photo I would have chosen...with the props (hat and glass of beer) in one of the staff messes on board the former royal yacht, Britannia in Leith.


September...
another photo taken in Scotland. The Forth Road Bridge taken from Queensferry...


October....
One of the prototype Concorde aircraft at Duxford War Museum

November...

The incredible Falkirk Wheel in Scotland...
December...

The famous Liver Building in Liverpool; photo taken from the Ferry on the Mersey...
The Back Cover...
Some of the Casinos in Macau.
So that is our calendar for 2015.
