New Year's Resolution

A long overdue picture of Captain James Cook, this first one from behind to take in the 199 steps, church and abbey. The Resolution is Cook's ship, sculpted into the pedestal. There was no obliging seagull perched on his head today, but plenty of evidence of their presence.


  1. Your comments crack me up. :-)

  2. Ah.. Captain James Cook! One of the best navigators ever. I find it very disappointing that he never even got a knighthood, in fact his botanist Joseph Banks received more recognition than James Cook.

  3. LOL! Birds really do have an affinity for statues, don't they? ;)

    An awesome view, nonetheless!
