Just a few monos while pootling around town on a Thursday afternoon with nothing better to do . . .

Plenty of retail premises to let in Plymouth; over-expansion in good times, closures aplenty in the bad times

Walking and loitering on Royal Parade

I did well to find this urban gem!

1950’s lighting still looks good, to me

When the oil runs out, next week, saddle sores begin

Everything must go: people, goods, the lot!

The blandness of modern life encapsulated: stop at red, go at green, baa!

The clothes, the pram, the dog: Plymouth in a nutshell

Plymouth Civic Centre: one of the worst-looking buildings ever?


Looking After Cinnamon Over Easter

Waiting for her walk

Over the Easter weekend I have been looking after my mother’s house and Cinnamon, her Labrador/Staffie Brindle mix. Cinnamon is quite an active dog, who is regularly run along the coast from Jennycliff to Bovisand Beach and back; she also runs with the Plympton Hash House Harriers (PH3) on Sunday evenings, and Try It Thursdays Hash (TITs) on, well, Thursday evenings.

Everytime I take her out for a walk, she insists that I take her ball with us for her to chase, which is fine by me; she does two or three times my own mileage. I mostly walk her from Jennycliff, enjoying cracking views of Plymouth Sound, around to Fort Stamford, one of the Palmerston Follies (a ring of mid-19th Century fortifications protecting Plymouth from the threat of a French land-invasion).

Anyway, time to take Cinnamon for another walk; it’s all “GO!” around here!
