A decaying long boat moored in the Barge Arm, within Gloucester Docks.

An interview with Jacques Herzog in ‘the de Young in the 21st century’, a book about the development and design of 2005 art museum located in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, by Herzog & de Meuron architects.

A great trip to Bristol’s Harbourside, to visit the boys Grandma.

Over to Millennium Square for some running around and paddling in the water-feature pools, then back to Grandma’s flat. A gppd day of education for the boys (and adults).
