A day out

Decisions decisions where shall I go Cirencester or Cheltenham which shall be my goal
Cheltenham 
was the one I chose

Nearly 2 hours on the bus through little villages and lanes. Cricklade is first, as seen from the bus

Latton, south Cerney, Siddington then on to Cirencester where we stop for a while.

wondering around what can I find? Just of the main Road a strange sign

and then a lovely old church so peaceful

there with old weather and worn grave stones not very clear
One caught my eye perhaps the reason for the sign.

Then hurry back for the bus, a double decker this time so upstairs is a must.
I have a front seat, couldn't be better so more photos are taken on the way back.

Mary love your photos today - looks like a great day out. Wish I lived nearer as I could have joined you for the day for photos and especially for the Starbucks (I spotted my ultimate favourite cinnamon swirl)

Super photos Mary - the clock looks amazing. I take it Cheltenham has horse sculptures everywhere, like Chester's rhinos, Skipton's sheep etc

Just catching up on your blog Mary. Love all your nature photos, and especially all the ones from Cheltenham - glad you've had a great day out, where will your bus pass take you next?

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
