Shopping then for a wee gift to take to a birthday tomorrow, and we came across a shop we’d never seen before, up an alleyway, with a Liquidation Total, and just what we wanted in the form of a delicate and filigree’d glass candle holder, which the nice shop woman made a great show of demonstrating; interested all the while in us and our holiday, and creating the perfect gift-wrap presentation and popping in a candle for gratis. Lovely job! Then onwards with a job-well-done swagger to our regular bakery, where I dropped the gift bag on the pavement, and the candle holder smashed to pieces.

And…. relax.

Here are some boatish views about us, mainly up by the boatyards. I took these at lunchtime, and like how there’s no-one in sight, though everything’s busy and tilted with the traces of people.
