Snap bicycles

Two weeks ago I shared images from the museum's new fashion gallery.  When I was walking into the museum I spotted one of the posters for the new galleries which features a huge bicycle leaning against a wall and took a picture for the summer scavenger hunt item 10 - a bicycle.  Then when I was looking at the new science area I noticed a wall of bicycles so went to investigate the display which has examples from the penny farthing through to modern racing bikes.  I was also interested to see an exhibition on wheelchairs which also had a racing chair/bike.  So here is my snap collection, linking with the scavenger hunt

wondering what you will be sharing this week - always interesting

Memorandum Monday mid July

Waving to you all on a breezy morning. 

Lots of considering the old this weekend as I've been sorting through some accumulations of stuff, some of which I put into a box when I unpacked 5 and a half years ago and haven't looked at since. 

Some new too with a visit to the garden centre for some nice potted colour for the garden and a new, person powered, lawn mower for my very small lawn - I need the grass to dry before I can make the inaugural cut

And another new for Friday lunch when I returned to the street food market - this time I chose a Latin American stall where they were cooking cornbread on the griddle which they then split and filled - I had pulled beef, black beans and avocado sauce - yummy. and I remembered to take a picture before sampling!

Wishing you all a good week - I'm off for a walk in the hope that I manage to get back before the forecast  rain showers arrive

Jazzy snap

a collection of images from the free jazz that I enjoyed on Saturday

There were 4 performance areas with different styles of jazz in each - unfortunately the amplification on the big stage meant their beat became a background for all other performers - must be very annoying for artists who have a softer sound.  I particularly enjoyed the energy of the guys in kilts.  Plenty of toe tapping and swinging to the music and I had a particularly delicious peach melba icecream.

Clearly some of the neighbours are not so delighted by the regular events that take place here - that yellow notice in the window reads 'no to noise' - really I think that anyone buying a property there should be aware of how the market space is used during the year - I noticed that in most other residences they had the window open and some were leaning out for a good view.

Thank you to everyone sharing their snap sets
