Random photos from around the town, and its almost time to go…..to China!!



I have been trying to get a good shot of a seagull for a little while, this one is the best so far, but I will keep trying Smile


I do like this shot though….

As the title says these are just some random shots from around our lovely little town, taken on a morning walk a week or so ago when the sun was shining. My camera goes everywhere with me, and has seen a lot of use over the last 4 years. I can always find something to take a photo of, it is amazing how many interesting things there are out there, if you have the time to notice them.


The start of my walk into town.


St saviours Church, where I took the photos of the water spouts in an earlier blog.


The Clock Tower of the former Royal Marines barracks peeping between two buildings on the seafront.


The pier, strange that I rarely take a photo of it from this side…


…..for some reason most of my photos are taken from this side!


The seafront, taken from about half way along the pier.


The misty scene to the South.


The statue at the entrance to the Pier, representing the fishermen the town is famous for.

As mentioned in the title of this blog, it is nearly time for my holiday of a lifetime. Next Monday I fly out with my sister in law to China, where I will see my daughter for the first time since last August. Needless to say I am getting very excited now, its been a long winter! This will be my last blog until I get back, hopefully with a lot of photos of my holiday….


I am looking forward to sharing some photos with you all in about a months time, until then, take care all xx
