Yes, readers, we have more travel stories this week! In addition to Freewayriding's tales of Turkey, Minorvogonpoet will explain about eclipse-watching in South America. Closer to home – well, their homes – Willem has another charming bird to show us, and SashaQ finds some small but intriguing wildlife, and takes amazing photos.

The black-and-white art photography has some nature in it, too. That duck is epic. We also have a moon, I didn't know it looked like that till I snuck up on it, and another stupendous staircase, and somehow, we are back at Glastonbury Tor. You'll enjoy this.

Hopefully, you'll also enjoy the quizzes (guest picture quiz this week) and opportunities for creativity. Please tell me what that picture is about. And remember to share your grandparent stories with everyone. We've dug around and found one you're sure to get a chuckle out of, from the century-before-last and the Isle of Man.

From the reportage to the comedy, there's lots to like in this issue. You can use the videos as soundtrack, if you like, or enjoy the pictures. Find out what the dinosaur is up to, see Desideria make a new friend in her own inimitable fashion, and get a gander at a rare postbox, because…Bluebottle.

Send more Stuff! Yes, it's lazy days, but you don't have to be too lazy to throw a few ideas together online. Enjoy whatever you're doing, and have a great week.
