I still haven’t been able to establish the exact dimensions. They say it is one of the tallest. I saw a 98 meter figure. So, maybe it is 320′ tall. OK, St. Peter’s, at the Vatican, is 448′ tall. So ….
Well, I just wanted to give you a head’s up.
The controversy is about it being dedicated to the armed forces. Having a cathedral dedicated to armed forces does sound incongruous. But, this is Russia & Putin had a major hand in having this cathedral built.
I will look into this more. Promise.
Saw it again 2-days later. Managed to get pictures & a video.
Never thought I would ever be lucky enough to see one in the ‘wild’. And then, today. BINGO. Walked in front of me, across the road — about 100-yards ahead of I.
Yes, for the last 2-weeks we had heard reports, from neighbours, that there was a bobcat around & that it had been seen on the road.
Well, I saw it. WOW. I am so psyched.
I do NOT like domestic cats. I do NOT like small cats.
Bobcats are about as SMALL as I can tolerate them. Bobcats are so cute. I would love one.
But, I will settle for today’s serendipitous encounter. Made my week.
I have quite the Summer. Close, & I mean close (with it GROWLING at I for coming too close), encounter with a black bear 3-weeks ago. Then this — & I was told that there was a bear on the path that I had just walked. Wow. I won’t even bother mentioning the 3-deer I have seen of late.
