Where did I go yesterday? Again into town, for want of anything more interesting. It seems that the gulls are taking over our river and were flying everywhere. We always have a lot during the Winter, but I never realised to what extent since I go more into town.
It was a quiet day and not so many people on the streets. It seems to me that since online buying by computer has taken over, the amount of shoppers are dwindling and there are only people walking around the town or visiting the many street cafés that we have.
I noticed these two men hovering over the street in one of those crane containers and realised they were busy hanging the town’s Christmas lights. We do not have a fantastic show, but every year they seem to be improving on it. Usually it was just a few grape similar groups of lights, but now they seem to be beginning to hang them over the street. I might see them once in the evening, although I am a rare evening visitor.
This part of the light chain was hanging down into the street. I waited around to see if there would be any fanstastic photos, but the men were more busy talking that making any action so I moved on.
It seems that in our cold temperatures the geraniums are still flowering, over one of our restaurants.
I decided to wheel my way back home along the river eventually.
I like to take the lower bridge crossing over the Aare. It is only for pedestrians and wheelchairs like me and you get a good view of the town and river.
So what else did I do yesterday? I seem to have been busy all day, but I do not know why. I suppose uploading my photos took some time and writing a couple of blogs. I also managed to get a couple of photos of my birdhouse visitors.
The are mainly sparrows, the tits seem to have disappeared at the moment. I think they are waiting for the really cold weather. It is still mild (6°C) for this time of the year and no rain.
And I must now go. Everything goes in slow motion these days, I am not a quick with my movements as I used to be. I will see you later I hope, so have a good day in the meanwhile. Here is one of yesterday’s photos from the Jura as I was on my way.
