Plymouth Hoe

Welcome back to my blog. Thanks for coming.

This issue is dedicated to Plymouth. Seen in all its summer splendour! Summer 2006 has brought record temperatures and sunny days to the UK. Hopefully it is not over yet. I have been telling people they should come to Singapore to visit us to cool down!

The photos were taken in June while we were there visitng my family. I don't think they need any commentary. Plymouth Hoe is a beautiful place and the Barbican never loses its charm. The sea-water outside pool has been recently renovated and it was a pleasure to see it open again with lots of people using it.

We had a great time in Plymouth with my parents. Daniela's Mum had flown in from Italy and come down with us from London. The World Cup was on and we saw England go out....but Italy, the curse of the Australians, kept going all the way to win the cup! My Great Nephew, Harrison was born....the first male in the family since I was born nearly 51 years ago! Boy is he going to be spoilt! I was very happy to be able to meet him the day after he was born which was also the day before we left Plymouth to return to London.

Next time (in two weeks) I'll post photos of Borough Market at London Bridge. One of our favourite places ever! The connection?......... FOOD! :)
