Civic Jaunt

I cycled into town this morning, directly over Sam Thompson (!) in fact.

Seriously, though, the trip through the newly-beautified and improved Victoria Park is delightful.

Passing through Queen's Square, where a fair number of costly paviours - granite or otherwise - have been carelessly replaced by tarmac (how on earth can the city fathers and roads service inspectorate let them away with shoddy workmanship?).

AT the Linenhall Library, which is being redecorated, I undertook a spot of research on the Johnstons of Lisgoole Abbey, the Herdmans of Sion House, and the Frasers, formerly of Gortfoyle.

Moving on to Marks & Spencer's store, I purchased a broad-striped purple shirt and an apple corer.

FINALLY, en route along High Street, I stopped off at P√Ętisserie Mimi, where the exquisite tartlets and hot cross buns proved to be irresistible.
