Art is Everywhere

Bring your own plants, there is
not much green stuff growing here
 Last weekend surprised us with warm temperature, almost like summer, possibly the last warm and sunny days of the year. So J and I took a walk around our "docklands", as such a renovated harbour landscape is called in Great Britain.

This is our most expensive building site where nothing really happens, and the delay counts in years. The reason is a quarrel between town administration and the company.
Expensive flats along old quays are popular living quarters now.

Lovers have their names engraved in locks and expose them on bridges. Don't know what this custom means exactly; our relationship works without it.
Flood protection doors are prescribed for some places.

 Going back to the old town

Traditional boat equipment shops offer ropes in new colors
