Sunday in the park

It was beautiful Spring day in Devonport Park.

Over recent years this city park has been rescued from the doldrums by an imaginative team of professionals and dedicated amateurs, to become one of the city's best loved "family parks".

There are vibrant activity areas for youngsters and quiet spots like this.

Test Card and Tulips

I spotted these wonderful suits at the match on Saturday.

Memories of the days before Daytime Television, when you could stare at the BBC Test Card for hours came flooding back. 

So much more interesting than The Jeremy Kyle Show.

Since seeing the other I have had the tune of
 "Tulips From Amsterdam" running through my head.

They don't write songs like they used to, and thankfully nobody sings like Max Bygraves.

These are only two of the twenty odd designs available.

Two men look through the prison bars;

one sees mud and the other stars.

These two are not prisoners.
They are members of 29 Commando Regiment of the Royal Artillery,
based at the Royal Citadel on Plymouth Hoe.

They are shouting encouragement to one of their comrades
as he gets close to the end of a very demanding physical challenge
