It’s already over a week since I got back from Wales and I’m still typing up blogs from that trip, but I think this is the last. Strangely it’s delay has caused it to wait long enough for a small article of some significance to appear on the BBCs website but more of that at the end.
At a reasonable time for lunch, Bev and me headed off with the intentions of slotting in one of Morrison’s very reasonably priced all day breakfasts before nipping across to Ellesmere to admire their sculpture trail. But while I was standing in the queue about to fill my teapot, Bev spotted something amiss. A complaining customer, and then she noticed that all the other customers were looking that way, much in the way merecats do, and then she noticed that all the table still had numbers on suggesting that none of the full restaurant had received any food – indeed they hadn’t, the kitchen staff of 1 was becoming increasing bogged down and they claimed an hours delay in serving (probably optimistic). We left, only to find Morrison’s café in the next town having similar problems (not quite so bad). We eventually found a little café which provided a lovely breakfast at 3 o’clock in the afternoon and two highly cherried sticky buns.
Puerto del Agua by EmilianoSacco. Catalogue says "I've tried to show the relationship between the rock and water". I say, "It's a bit like a Nik Nak. Quite nice."
A Prisoner by Tom Gilhespy, Catalogue says, "This rock has been moved from the north by glacier and I've chained it down now". Bev and me are both known to pick up the odd pebble from time to time and Bev was reminded of the poem about the stones that move, I think it might be in my old blog somewhere. We liked this.
Grasshopper on the sculpture
We think this is a Scotch Argus (Erratum - I now think it's not a scotch argus but something else??)
A Fallen Tree by Mother Nature (uncatalogued)
Rotation 2 by Trevor Clarke Catalogue says "This reflects the journey of the rock on it's journey here"
