Scenes from yesterday.....

Ola Peeps,

Hubby dropped me off in Fareham yesterday. At first it was warm enough to go gloveless, that lasted about an hour .Next thing ya know it was freezing and raining.I went to all the thrift shops, the library and of course my big lunch out....McDonalds.

Scenes from yesterday :
(be sure to click the pics to see them full sized)

Looking up East Street

A very narrow street.

Very blue door.

It is very rare to get a shot with no people or traffic. Note to self :next time look inside the Red Lion Hotel.

Very green door. Love the knocker.

A Pub, I think.

Unsure what this one is.

Zebras? Where?

Window box.

A large Pub.

I actually found a few things at the thrift shops . Woo hoo!

Very blue shirt. 3 pounds.

Cool pair of jeans. 3 pounds.

Pair of hand embroidered pillow cases.

ONE pound!

"I'm too sexy for this cheap carpet."

"Go away, I'm tired."

Cat ON the British closet.

Happy Sunday!

Love the pictures! Do you carry an umbralla when you go out? If not, how do you get around? I like the name Naomi Rose; funny -- Mother's name was Rosie and her mother's name was Naoimi. You probably said but I've slept since then -- was that 'bed' in the closet made for the cats? aj

I am laughing at what you said about McDonalds. I don't go there much anymore, but my hubby is gone today and the main thing on my mind is going to McDonalds to get something to eat.

Enjoyed seeing the pictures and happy to know you were out of the house for a bit.

The Red Lion Hotel looks interesting but what caught my eye was the stripes on the street. I could make no sense of them. Zerba crossing? Maybe an overstressed city employee had something to do with both. Just kidding. That's my wierd sense of humor.

Love the pictures of town and your kitties. I'm glad you had some luck with your shopping.

Lovely pictures, looks like you enjoyed your day, out and about.
The "Zebra Crossing" is what they call the black and white cross-walks...guess they were giving the motorist a "heads up" so they can slow down.
Glad you came home with bargains....

What!!? You had your choice of some fine lookin pubs and you chose to eat lunch at McDonalds? Gahhhh!!! You coulda had a beer with your lunch. Draft ale. Great pics. They guy who painted the white stripes in the street in front of the pub must have been drunk. Good buys except maybe the little old lady pillow cases. G5

Fareham? I didn't know you lived that close to me! I'm only in Winchester. Never been to Fareham, actually....but I know where it is.

Glad you got out though! If you ever want to catch a train and head to Winchester on a weekend, let me know! :)
