Enjoying a Bristol Sun-day

It took me quite a few years in Jerusalem to get used to not having a Sunday - it's the first day of the Israeli working week. That was hard! But after 15 years, now we're back in England and yippee, a Sunday is a Sunday again! It feels like a double weekend now... and today J and I went a-wandering and a-brunching through sunny Bristol. Here are a few snaps:


This is Bristol's beautiful harbourside, it's about a 20 minute walk from our house - all uphill on the way home!

And when we came home, these two wanted their turn out in the sun...


We're off shortly to hear the local candidates give their election pitches - general & local elections on May 6th. First time I've voted in the UK for 16 years, might as well go and hear what it's all about. I hope it doesn't ruin my lovely Sunday!

It is a glorious day isn't it? I know Bristol well. Have you been round the Great Britain yet? It's quite amazing to stand underneath its hull ...

Hey, happy Sundaying!

I've been reading your past few posts - catching up - and I really didn't mind being rejected by you :)

The pics on Vanessa's blof look like you all had a great time!

Hi Simon, nice to meet you, thanks for commenting! No, we haven't been there yet, will definitely go. I just gaze longingly at it from a distance...

Rachel - no rejecting of you, just passing on your story. And yes, we had a lovely time!

Thanks for the photos. I don't know UK at all but for some reason I thought Bristol was away from the coast. It must be lovely living so close to the sea, says the Landlocked Writer. :(

Lauri,
it's not the sea it's a river which runs through the city. Sorry, I wasn't clear! But Bristol is near the west coast, not far from the sea and from Wales. It's lovely!

Bristol is the most incredible place - have you seen the caves that run beneath it? M

Tania Hershman said...

Hi Martha, lovely to meet you. Caves?? No! Are you based here?

What a coincedence, my friend sent me this website she came across. She used to live in Bristol, and wanted to share it with me. I had only ever been there once when I lived in the UK.
