Plymouth, England

Some photos from my trip to Plymouth, England.
I love the overall effect here. The waffle-like building on the background is a modern shopping centre, with an old cathedral ruins in the foreground. It would have been a perfect photograph if the cars and traffic lights weren't there.
A little corner of a secluded garden in the city. Hubby took this picture when I was coaxing a friendly cat out of the bush underneath the bridge. If you have an eagle eye you could see me somewhere between the "brainy" letters. :)
An old lighthouse on the foreshore. You can see a little island in the background. The locals said that 2 sisters owned the land and used to live there until they passed away and the ownership was transferred to National Trust (or something like that). Looking at the island reminded me of one of Agatha Christie's books: And Then There Was None - the perfect setting for murder mystery! I could also imagine Enid Blyton's The Famous Five roaming around the island: Julian, Dick, Anne, and George, with Timmy in tow. Oh, the wonder of childhood books...
Another corner of Plymouth' shore. I don't really know what that was. It was cold and the wind was quite strong, so I just sat on the bench doing people-watching. And island-watching, obviously.

OMG! I can believe they ruined this view with that shopping centre. That's pure criminal. My heart aches when I see things like this.

Well, it's not so bad, as they still keep the cathedral ruins instead of demolishing it all together. I know what you mean though...

I love the photos of England. It's nice to see things taken by locals that I would never get to see otherwise.

Pretty pictures! But the waffle like building(s) looked kind of weird

Blair said...

Oh yeah, are you relieved that our no buy is finally over?

That first pic is so funny! Funny in both meanings of the word! You know, I still haven't understood where you're living in at the moment....?? xx

@hicksyis: I suppose I'm a "local", travelling round England at the moment. :D

@Blair: Uhuh. It's good to have the option to buy when I need/want to. LOL.

@Anna: the pic is different... I currently live in UK, waiting to move on to other country. :)

Anna said...

I meant, where are you living at the moment within the UK! :-P But I suppose you don't want to disclose too much...hey, perhaps you'll move to Italy one day and not just come for your hols!! xx

Music said...
