Day 057 – colours and a cat…

Walking around town there are always things changing. Colours stand out where before they merged with the background, new developments are always coming and going and people are moving around.

I like the way people on the canal boats by Gloucester Docks personalise their space – the guy with the cat and planter is a good example : )

River Severn very high water level…!

Well, I was hoping for a white Christmas but here in Gloucester, it was more of a very wet Christmas! One of the more common features of the last month or so has been the rain, rain, rain…!

A slightly worrying by-product of the rain is the very high river water levels, particularly the River Severn which runs to the west of the built up area of Gloucester. I walked over to The Quay which runs alongside the river to check out the rather wet landscape which has developed over the last few weeks.

Saundersfoot / Tenby: Day 1…

The last holiday of the year, to Tenby (SW Wales). The house in Saundersfoot had all the mod cons, including Blu-Ray internet TV! A short drive to the beach and great to be by the coat again.

Some patterns in the sand and health & safety sign meets tagging!
