Thursday, July 14.
Set off for the short walk into town via the river path. On the way we passed an unknown section. The sign says it all.
The walk along the river was, dare I say it, very lush and green.
Met these two who thought they would tag along. That’s the wall of the castle which runs the full length of our walk, about 2kms.
Bridge over the river in the Centre of town.
Lots of brightly coloured buildings.
Sarah, here is another one.
Too true. Watson a shop window.
As you can see there is no shortage of stone her, or flowers.
Round tower of the cathedral in the background.
Had to sneak a knocker in.
Oh it was a tad windy up there. Fourty five metres up, and down.
This was the hole I was talking about.
Back on the ground we looked in the cathedral. The sheer size and beauty of these buildings is amazing. All done without modern machinery and still standing today.
Up the stairs and find Tielens for a coffee.
Off to look at the castle.
Another knocker. This time on the castle.
Would not want to mow this.
Inside the stables on the other side of the road. Obviously not enough room in the castle grounds.
Interesting pottery in the gallery.
Yarn bombed bike.
More of the stables.
Fountain out the front of the castle, and views of the river from the ramparts.
Sprung a leak.
After a fine evening we caught the cab back to camp.
Friday, July 15.
Headed into town again for more sight seeing and a look in St Mary’s Cathedral. Yes there is more than one on town.
Lovely row of houses built in the 1800’s..
