Thatched Roof Thursday #77 - For Sale

Meadowbank, High Street, Marton 
 This certainly is a family home.  It has 5 bedrooms.

This is the last of the thatched cottages found in the village of Marton, not far from Coventry.
I found the online listing for this house.  If you want to have a peek inside, click on the
link - HERE.  (When the house is sold the link will not work.)

Day Out To 'Another Place'

Crosby Beach, England

Another Place is the title of a permanent exposition of sculptures 
(there are over 100 of them) created by Antony Gormley.
The ship, conveniently,  just happened to be passing by.

The dog?  Just having a closer look, I guess :).

When we visited, many of the sculptures were out of sight, hidden by the high tide.
Crosby Beach is between Liverpool and Southport in the North of England.
It takes about 2 hours (123 miles) to get here from Coventry.

PS.  I am suffering from a rather bad toothache.  Been to the
dentist 3 times and hopefully it will all be sorted next week.
I'll post when I can :).

The Oak Tree With A Little Extra

Taken yesterday. A favorite Oak Tree I like to 
photograph throughout the year as part of a Tree Series.

The 'little extra' was found under that big oak tree.

 I always thought the fence was there to protect the tree.  
Looks like I got that wrong :).
(The last shot was taken 2 hours earlier under very dark clouds.)

Cheers for now.  Have a good week!

The Glass Bridge

Lady Herbert's Garden, Coventry

Here is quiet spot in the City Centre.  Those are almshouses
in the background.  The Glass Bridge is curious, but I love to walk on it.
 Built in 2003 as part of the Phoenix Initiative to regenerate parts of the City Centre.

I am going to show you the view immediately to my left so you
can see the reality of what lies close by.  

Coventry Transport Museum.  An absolute 'must see' if you visit
Coventry.  Afterwards, go for a 15 minute walk in Lady Herbert's Garden.

All taken today in the sunshine :).

In The Rain

Coombe Abbey Hotel

The plan?  To go for a walk around Coombe Country Park today.
Did is rain?  Plenty!  

PS.  If you like to look at expensive cars...have a look at the entrance to Coombe Abbey Hotel.

A selection of Ferrari cars.

I like these more classic models :).
The top red Ferrari is a 1955 classic.  Not sure about the next two.

City Daily Photo Theme Day - Take Away Store

Ring the bell and you will be served!

At our golf club, you can purchase food and drinks 'To Go' from the bar.  
Handy, because of the location between the 9th hole and the 10 tee.  
If you buy a coffee, you can spill most of it by the
time you get to the 10th lids supplied.  
If you are a duck, they serve fresh bread too but you might have a little wait before you are noticed :).
