Lovely Weekend in Plymouth

I quite love this city, and spent one of my Devon weekends here. We walked through the Barbican a bit — and some lovely little side streets, old and stone-filled, narrow and full of faded colour:

So much of this country is haunted by what was.

We walked down along the sound as well

Not least by J.G. Ballard.

We managed a few of the ordinary everyday streets of Plymouth as well, apologies for sharing the most picturesque.

As we wandered back from a visit to Saltram House. I really wanted to see gardens — they were nice here, but not too special. The wildflowers were wonderful though.

The house was all right, though I never do care too much for these massive displays of wealth really:

But I always love the kitchens. An early patented ‘portable refrigerator’ and more…

Also good for deeper insight into the class system:

The library was lovely — along with early adjustable shelves and Blount’s Jocular Tenures!

I also enjoyed the step stool into bed
