Went for a walk. The Sun shines for once !
« on: January 26, 2014, 01:41:05 AM »
Subtitle.
 
A few phone images of the place where I live !

Youngest Daughter decided that she had done enough preparation for her exams and wanted to go for a walk.

So, it stopped raining and the Sun came out for us. Whoop whoop !

It was almost like the clock had been turned back ten years when we heard a train approaching a level crossing. A 17 Year old girl and 50 Year old bloke running up the road to watch a train pass... Good times !











Cheers,

Dave R.

Looks nice with the tide out.
I still love the idea that Avoncliff is a request stop.
I've never done it, but one day I'll flag down the train there ;D
Go soothingly on the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.

Then high winds blew all the wheeled rubbish bins over in the School next door and the electricity went off !

All back to normal now.

Don't feel bad Chippy, we don't have building that old in Trowbo and that's only 4 miles away. :D
We do have a brand new multiplex cinema and a Nando's tho.

Looks like a nice place Dave, thanks for sharing the experience and insight to your world.

Would dearly love to hear a 465 ring ding a dinging down those narrow lanes early on a sunday..... :D :D



Cheers,
Chris.

   Hello there Dave, and thanks for sharing! I really like the architecture of your place! kind of reminds me of Perth in Scotland and some villages near that! Although a bit heavy, I really like the atmosphere! And when the sun comes out, I guess it's time for celebration! All the best with the Exams!


   Cheers, Fanis

The weather is playing extremes yet again. Most of the week it's been steady rain, but today it's been pretty nice for a Winters day.

Youngest Daughter wanted to go for a walk again so we did a similar route to last week.
Shame about the photos, my Samsung phone took great images when I first owned it, but the quality has deteriorated recently.
