Another place I can walk to in my lunch break. Across the other side of the A14 is the older part of Bury St Edmunds. The first bit that I come across is a stream and wildlife area, with its accompanying greedy ducks, gulls and squirrels.
Today another chunk from the same tape which contained the elephants on day 16. While visiting friends and family in Ontario, we were invited to spend a day at a lake-front cottage on South Lake near Minden Hills. We all had a lot of watery fun.
The music for this video is a section of “Chicken” by She Makes War from the album “Disarm” and is used by permission. Laura is a very talented musician, photographer and video-maker, and I strongly recommend that you watch her videos, buy some of her stuff and see her perform.
It’s been a generally misty day today, and this evening the fog really came down, giving a great look to even an ordinary residential street.
I went for a walk at lunchtime and nothing major seemed to be happening. It was just a calm, pleasant autumn day.
A quick snippet recorded on a lunchtime walk. A single leaf was trapped on a strand of spider web and the passing wind caused it to spin like a top.
Back in the summer of 2008 we spent a few weeks in Canada, partly in British Columbia, and partly in Ontario. One of the Ontario places we visited was African Lion Safari near Cambridge. While we were there we watched some elephants taking a bath.
It’s about a half-mile walk to the gym, and a few months ago I noticed what appeared to be grapes rambling over a fence between some industrial units. Over the summer and autumn I have watched them grow, hoping that whoever owned them would pick them and put them to use. Sadly, it seems that nobody cares, and they have been left on the vine to rot.
The rain held off for a few hours, so we took the opportunity to clear up the garden including raking up a load of fallen leaves from our cherry tree.
Another in the intermittent series of things I can see in my lunch break. The A14 is a busy major road which divides Bury St Edmunds in two. The old town centre is on one side but lots of industrial and residential areas are on the other. A few minutes walk from my current main client offices are several ways of crossing the A14. This video is a little feel for how the road looks up close.
