One Word Sunday: Shadowy

Debbie’s theme for this Sunday is ‘Shadowy’. It’s almost eleven years since we visited Pompeii and walked down this shadowy, cobbled street, which until around noon on August 24th, 79 AD would have been bustling with Roman chariots and people hurrying to and fro about their business. On that fateful day, Mount Vesuvius suddenly erupted, burying the city under a sixty foot blanket of hot ash and pumice. It stayed like that until it was discovered and excavated in the eighteenth century.

A photo can bring back so many memories and I feel very fortunate to have been able to visit this historic site. If you would like to add a ‘shadowy’ photo of your own, just click the link.
