Flyover


Well we made it to Lincoln for the day to celebrate my birthday & our wedding anniversary.

It was quite a nice, relaxing day all round, as the sun came out now and again. But it stayed dry, and that was the main thing.

We parked up and had a stroll along the cobbled streets, looking in the different shops. Gail wanted to visit this particular shop that sold vintage clothes and bric a brac. There was quite a good selection of stuff on offer. I just wonder where it all comes from though, as there seems to be so much of it about these days, even though it might be between 40 and 70 years old. Also at what age does something stop being vintage?

We also stopped off here and there to do a spot of photography.  I like this abstract figures sculpture that fly over the River Witham as it cuts its way along the Waterside area. According to the information on the map that we picked up from the tourist office, the sculpture is called Empowerment. It was created in 2002 by artist Stephen Broadbent.
