Bristol Holiday!

 

 

 

 


My youngest daughters and I just returned from a 10 day trip to Bristol, England...

...what a wonderful city this is, and what a delightful vacation we all had!

Bristol is an 800 year old city with a population roughly that of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (not too big!)...

...full of friendly people, rich in history and culture...

...and possessing a spirit of modern reinvention-exhibited in many new museums, galleries and performance art spaces.

We had the most beautiful weather imaginable...

...not even once requiring our new raincoats or umbrellas!

These photos are just a small glimpse of the variety found in this lovely city...

...from St. Mary Redcliffe church, to famous graffiti art by Banksy...

...to the Clifton Suspension bridge, and a sculpture for Bristol physicist Paul Dirac.

I have much more to show you...

...one fiber-related exhibit, especially (which was incredible!)...

...but there is laundry to be done and bills to be paid.

More later!!
