A Trip Down Memory Lane.

 

A view of Bristol.

Last Monday was Grandsons Riley and Neyo's birthdays. Also if Dai's father was still alive he would have been 97 years old on the very same day.
Therefore last Sunday we decided to take flowers up to the Crematorium South in Bristol UK which is where Dai grew up.
The day was very cold and there were a few snow flurries but this mattered not as we had a great day. I know that Dai felt very nostalgic and I took as many photos as I could. I hope you enjoy.

The day so misty
In the distance is the bridge
Such a great landmark.

A gem which caught my eye.

What is this??

This one caught my eye
This little Scottie so cute
Simple but clever.



I hope you all enjoyed our day out in Bristol ;we are going to return when the weather is nicer and explore further .
Also it wasn't the best of days to take photos as there was a mist all around ; but nonetheless we had a brilliant day.
Take care and enjoy your day to one and all.
