Loyalty Binds Me

This week I thought it was about time I took a look at the of tomb King Richard 111 in our cathedral. I can’t remember the last time I actually went inside the building. I’m glad I did as they have done a fantastic job with the tomb and the tour guides were really helpful and knowledgable.

Things are Happening in my Home town

It was a beautiful morning so up early and out for a walk.

There was a partial (very Partial) eclipse of the sun the light was very strange and ethereal, birds began the dawn chorus over again. I walked to the nearest park and people were setting up cameras and tripods.

Another event is taking place over the weekend in the town and surrounding county.

Here’s a clue.

TV crews setting up and last minute preparations going on.

I carried on with the walk, there were a few doors I wanted to photograph, then on down to the canal.

Some early blossom was out, really felt like spring is in the air.

And a canal boat was on it’s way through the lock.

If it carries on like this I can feel a bicycle ride coming on.
