Unexpected Walk along the River

Hi again folks,

Working again today but managed to sneak a couple of hours off this afternoon as I had to look at cases for the pending holiday, after wrecking the shop I left empty handed. All was not lost as I ended up walking along the river, it's path goes right around St. Mary's Island but I only did a short distance as it looked like it was going to rain yet again.

I looked across the water to Upnor Castle which I had photographed many times but each time the light strikes it at a different angle.

I walked along the path with not a soul in sight but I must admit it was nice and peaceful on my own.

Then my peace was shattered with this craft doing an exercise on the river creating a lot of noise and wake.

On I went past the Yacht club on the other side before I turned around to head back to the car.

Back past the concrete rope at the end of the walkway.

Looking across the river the clouds were starting to build up as the sun started to disappear, if you look very closely you can just make out the Castle and the Cathedral in the distance.

Back in the car I gathered my thoughts before deciding to go over to the Marina and take some more or just go home. You will have to wait till tomorrow to find out.

Thanks for looking.

nite nite, Luv Mike XX
