Sunny Saturday in Bristol
Sarah, my elder daughter, and I spent Saturday morning visiting the Art of the Stitch exhibition at the Royal West of England Academy, meeting up with my internet pal, Pauline, who was on a visit there from London with her branch of the Embroiderers Guild. It was a very interesting and engaging show, with much food for thought and inspiration.
Afterwards, we decided to make the most of the wonderful weather by having lunch at the Arnolfini,a newly refurbished modern art gallery with a good bar/café and excellent waterside location. The photos show the view towards St Mary Redcliffe, a general view south across the harbour, the cranes outside Bristol Industrial Museum and the WEEE Man, another current visitor to Bristol. With good food and excellent company (we were joined by Pauline after she had perused some of Bristol's shopping opportunities in Park Street) it was a very pleasant spot to enjoy the sunshine from under the shade of a big tree.
