Not Very Effective Guard Dogs
Not Very Effective Guard Dogs (Nikon D5000)

I don't think you'll find that stone guard dogs are that effective, something about them being stone, however athletically and from a maintenance point of view they are better than real dogs as far as I am concerned. None of that barkey nonsense with these chaps they just obediently sit there asking for nothing. These can be found at Brodsworth Hall near Doncaster.A loing way to go for a trip out but it looked interesting and we hadn't been there despite my Wife constantly saying that we had.

It's an interesting hall and probably better when the weather is warm and there would have been more to see if we has turned up on Sunday because we would be able to look at the chapel. Still looking at the huge hall set out as it would have been around the First World War is impressive though very cold even inside so if you do go when it's cold, make sure you take a good thick coat and as you can see by the picture it was cold. I think the snow gives it away.

Travel Brochure Short
Travel Brochure Short (Nikon D5000)

Back to Tunisa today what with a busy few weeks and very little time to take snaps, but this is of the mausoleum in Monastir which is really impressive and definitely somewhere to go, but it's a weird place in that it's all neat and tidy and yet all you need to do is step 100 yards in another direction and it's becomes all messy and for a tourist resort (albeit out of season) it seems a little strange. Then you get to the beach and it becomes touristy in a way but then again not. Add to that we ended up going to lunch a few hundred yards away and it all looked OK when we went in but after ordering it became apparent that we were not in the lap of luxury.

I would say one thing though, the next time you complain about Health and Safety then take a trip to anywhere in Tunisia and you'll be glad to come back to the cushioned warmth of rules. Health and Safety in Tunisia is carrying your baby whilst crossing the motorway as it would be absurd to make them walk themselves.
