Thanks for your patience. I hope these help to get across the sheer beauty of this city.
Here are some general around the town photos:
This sign is on the highway coming into the city from the south.
The Admiralty at the center of the city. On the other side of the building is the Neva River.
As a reference, my honey’s room is in the building on the left with the A-frame sign in front. Note the Admiralty in the background.
Location, etc. Also note the parking style. Yes, that’s the sidewalk. The traffic is a free-for-all there.
A few more shots below the fold:
This is Peter and Paul Fortress, built to protect the city.
Oh, and Happy Birthday to me.
