Bristol To Whitley Bay

More early morning writing and and then a wander around Bristol...






After a spot of brunch we engaged with culture. Debbie worked at Birmingham Arts Lab at the same time I worked at Spectro Arts Workshop in Newcastle. Those two establishments often linked in to Bristol's Arnolfini. So although we were both very familiar with the name this was the first time either of us had been to the place.

I liked this piece in Gallery 2 which shows a map of Bristol and plots the bomb damage during WW2...




Meanwhile...




At the airport and Debbie reacts to the news that our flight was delayed...


I wasn't too worried as it gave me more time to work on a particularly difficult set of sleeve notes that had been eluding me the whole weekend. Then the fire alarms went off and the entire building was evacuated!


 


and after around 20 minutes we were all admitted back in. Somewhat bedraggled, we arrived home later than we'd hoped but glad to be back. In the meantime, this is what arrived while I was away...

Shaldon To Bristol

A rainy day view from the office this morning...


We met Graham and Linda in the Clipper Cafe catching up on email and said our farewells until next year. Then off to spend a couple of hours with Neil and Halina. After saying goodbye, we headed out into the drizzle to wait for the ferry over to Teignmouth...




Into Bristol Temple Meads...


After drying off in the hotel, I did some more work while Debbie read her book. Then out for a walk and something to eat...
