Down Dockside

Hi folks,

Well what has happened to the summer?

I really need like everyone else the sun to shine, I mean it is May after all.

Went to see some friends for lunch yesterday and afterwards went for a walk by the river to get some air in my lungs after a week indoors.

We walked along the quay by the new Apartments which seem to be deserted with not a lot going on.

Looking out to get a reflection, well sort of.

This Pigeon had the right idea and protected himself from the wind under the lock gates, I think he was a bit hungry as well.

A bit of action by the lock, these two boats were coming in to moor after a trip down the river.

Up goes the lifting bridge to let the boats go free.

Little update to my condition. Not done a lot as I have to give it time to heal internally, I am getting as I was told a slight fuzzy head but not as bad as I thought and I am able to do away without any headache pills.

I thought this scene with the " Southern Mist" summed the day up. Well back to the car and home, at least I tried.

Thanks for looking.

nite nite, luv Mike XX
