A cold, blustery afternoon on the River Tamar

The ferry from the beautiful hamlet of Cremyll, on the Cornish bank of the river,
makes it way back to Admiral's Hard, its terminus in Stonehouse, on the Plymouth shore.

The river frontage of the Stonehouse district of Plymouth, 
like all the other "waterside" areas of the city,is under constant redevelopment.
 Many of the once prestigious but now shabby, older properties are being expensively
 renovated and returned to their original state.
While other sites are being cleared so that new apartment developments can rise in their place.  

A few hundred metres along the shoreline from the area above,
is the first phase of a major residential development in Millbay Dock, in Stonehouse.

The first snowfall of winter.

The small area in the city centre which is home to the Christmas Market, the Skating Rink 
and Santa's Grotto, awoke to find that there had been a light snow fall during the night.

Strange that the snow should be confined to such a small, well defined area area, 
and stranger still that the temperature is well above freezing.
Maybe Santa had something to do with it.

The thin red line.

Very belatedly, Plymouth is improving and extending the provision and visibility 
of dedicated cycle tracks, in and around the city. 

The "paint" has the most wonderful "gloopy" consistency.

The drip trays contained some great lava like "sculptures".

Morning Coffee

From the the first time I went into the Secco Lounge, in the Royal William Yard in Plymouth,
 I've been intrigued by this painting. 
What is the story?

Polished to a mirror finish.

A perfect winter day.
Not a breath of wind, not a cloud in the sky, air temperature 0° C.

Six characters in search of an author.

Yesterday the sun shone on some colourful characters

This was the reason they were all here.
