Yesterday was good ......

..... and after yet another visit to yet another doctor
my very thoughtful Ozzie daughter-in-law
whisked me off into the heart of Norwich
to join the public library.
The Forum which houses the new library
So much has changed since I was last here.
The old library burned down while I was in France
and the new one is quite amazing and just a little
bit overwhelming if I'm honest.
The covered market
Some things, however, never change.
The old covered market with it's brightly covered awnings
was just as busy as ever.
The 900 year old cathedral was just as beautiful and
awe inspiring as the day it was built.
And the buskers were still out in force entertaining
the locals and visitors alike although I don't remember
ever having seen one quite so shy as this guitarist
who wishes to remain anonymous.
Perhaps it was Eric Clapton having a laugh.

  1. Oh, that Eric! ;)

    I know what you mean about the library. Our local library added on and one of the things I miss most is the way the old library smelled. It smelled of books and furniture wax and quiet and knowledge.
