Rain - liquide sunshine.

Great place it must be where such nice things are able to be seen. Love the Sphinx and its background. Please have a wonderful start into the new week.

That's an interesting symbol for the police.
A fine collection of myths here.
It was fun going back to see your December 2008 posts.

A wonderful tour to post on a rainy Sunday. No rain here today--what a change. MB

I love myths and legends of all kinds so it goes without saying that I love mythical creatures too. This is a post especially for me. ;)

Nice collection of symbols. We also had a dull Sunday here. Have a much better week!

So you stayed inside? It was raining all day yesterday but I had to go out (you know, Father Christmas and all that). I didn't see anything as interesting as these fairies, phoenix or sphinx though!
