ABC Wednesday



A is for ... Astronomy


I've decided to give ABC Wednesday a go, after seeing that Dragonstar has taken the plunge. I discovered ABC Wednesday a few weeks ago, but didn't join as it was almost at the end of the alphabet. Well, today, it's starting from A again. If you want to find out more about ABC Wednesday, just click the above graphic, to visit the host.

So what does my pic have to do with astronomy?



It shows Swansea Observatory, which stands just above the beach, in the Maritime Quarter, or Swansea Marina, as it's more commonly known. I like the way it kind of looks like a space rocket with a booster strapped to it. Happy Wednesday!

Hi Siani - I'm an ABC newbie like you! Your photo's bought back many happy memories for me as I used to have an aunt an uncle in Waunarlydd, so spent many a happy summer holiday on the Gower. Three Cliffs Bay is my favourite, plus Thomas' Tea Rooms!

See you on the ABC...

We haven't been to Wales for years, we intend to however, on the motorbike. This would be somewhere hubby would love.

Welcome to the club! This must be one of my favourite choices for A, since I am an astronomy and cosmology "nut".

Nice picture too!

Hi Siani. Me influencing you must be a first - I usually rely on your advice!
Love your pic of Swansea Observatory.

Hey vp, I had relations in Waunarlwydd too - small world!

You're the third one I've seen today who's just taken this up! I think I will to but my camera's just broken so I'm off to colliers to see if they can help me.

Isn't it gorgeous today?

That is a very good interpretation of the letter A, and the observatory does look like it is ready to take off. My A offering is floral.
