A Grand Day Out!

I spent a Grand Day Out in Bristol yesterday with 2 lovely friends, Kris and Fiona.  We chatted and shopped, ate, shopped, chatted, ate, shopped and ate some more.

Bristols Christmas Lights are quite amazing - enormous light bulbs and lots of light sabers.

This is Raymond Blanc's restaurant "Brasserie Blanc"
- look at the chapel at the back - 
that's part of the restaurant too!
And at night!

We had afternoon tea in Patisserie Valerie


The return journey was interesting......

It took us 5 hours to get home as power lines had fallen on the railway track causing cancellations by the carriage load and a diversion - quite an adventure!


  1. That restaurant is lit beautifully! Nice photos, especially, of course, the cakes :)

  2. Lol - good job I got that photo taken quickly - they weren't around long!!!
