Exeter

I Bring Photos

... so hope I am forgiven for only posting twice this week!  However, as it's PhotoFriday I do have photos to share althought this one was actually taken for on a walk with a friend yesterday -

I spent over an hour in the opticians in the end.  All they could, eventually, work out was that I have lost a small amount more of my vision in that eye, but my glasses prescription was completely unchanged.  So, all in all, my eyes were fighting the changes to cope.  There wasn't enough of a retina change to actually make me notice it - but the prescription was obviously different, as the view out of that eye was going to be in a different angle.

Yesterday I went for a walk at Haldon with my friend from work.  She is now back at work mornings and overall is doing well.  However it was nice to have that walk to be able to chat.  So that was 2 busy afternoons, so I didn't get round to switching on my computer.

Today I walked into the city the way I would normally drive (a bit further, as it's just over 2 miles that way, so I had a total of just over 4 miles)

So as you can see there is some more Spring colours ... but also to show you a bit more of the city -

This used to be the path Jiffy & I walked down, having got this far on the bus.  The origins of the walls are Roman -
