    The Number 13 Bus or the No 6

    August 15, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Decided th have a day off driving and spend 2 nights in one place.
    The accommodation is very good but is done in early bordello style. Or maybe that’s just a description of how untidy we are.
    It has a kitchenette so we could do some in house eating.
    That worked, pub first night and probably Italian the second.
    Having a day in Norwich with the Cathedral and Castle.
    We were to get the No 13 bus on advice of the locals.
    They had moved the stop due to road works and there was some discussion as to where the new one was.
    Amazingly we found it and although we ended up on the No 6 we got to Norwich easily.
    It’s now obvious how they trim the overhanging trees.
    They run double deckers up and down the roads.
    Norwich bus station the size of Strathfield station. Very slick.

    Norwich Town and Castle

    August 15, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    In to town to Norwich Bus Station, a place of wonder where a never ending stream of buses disgorge and vacuum up most of north east England.

    Norwich is a big place about 45,000 and appears to have traffic to match. All works in an English sort of way. Sydney road rage would bring the place to a standstill.

    Normans built the castle sometime before 1075 to let the Saxons know who had won.
    Castle was built on a huge motte with 2 additional ones on front. One is now a shopping centre (what a comedown).

    Present castle is a very recent addition, only been there since 1045.

    January 7 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 8 °C

    Today work and school started for the London Coles. Molly arrived to take the boys to school and I took myself off on the train to Norwich to spend the day with an old and very dear friend Elizabeth.

    Meanwhile Russell, Henry and Ivy tagged along on the school run and went into town to the Tate Modern. Apparently they were plotting a day trip to Paris - but sadly didn't take their passports.Read more
