Out and about the city on my day off! :D

I had the day off from work today, so I decided to go grocery picking in Belbins. ^_^ Because they deliver food, and I had the intention of buying ten pounds of flour, among other things, and I am pitifully weak in the chest and the arms and the muscles. *collapse at the mere IDEA of carrying flour*

So after some serious time spent staring at the internet until I realized the reason I was feeling dull might have something to do with the fact that I’d only eaten (very) crispy bacon and cookies, and then I went to buy some coffee and a bagel. And at that point I was halfway there, so I kept walking! ^_^

BTW, you can click on any picture to see it BIG. If that floats your boat.

I walked past this, which is the outside of the High Court. They have what looks like a moat, three stories deep, with barred windows opening into it and a rusted cage at the top. Very cheering, I’m sure.

Another view of the cage. 

This is Belbins! It’s just in a residential area, and then you come to this house that has a glass front. They’ve been in business for over a century.

They have SO MANY KINDS of marmalade. I went with Lemon Curd. As one does.

And the meat section, next to the veal, is ground ostrich. We’re in the big city now, guys!

Should I get duck liver or Bison Burgers? Choices, choices. 


Oh, there are multiple varieties of mushrooms, and fruit salads. It’s all good. 

And then I walked on, and found this row of houses, which I WANT for my OWN. They’re so tiny and cute! And old and stepped!

Then I walked along Water street, where a strange *thing* was.

A closeup of the *thing.*

They put the high-rises on stilts here, to keep up with the hills. 
😀 😀

And I just really liked this wall, which is why you get a picture of it.


My iphone took this picture twice, and I couldn’t decide which one I like better. So you get both. I’m generous like that!

This was just a random shed that delighted me. I’d just gotten an idea for a story, so a lot of things delighted me.

Like this cafe, sticking out of the side of the building. 

And this, which is actually a legal street. It just is not car-friendly. 
St. John’s: Where they discriminate against motor vehicles!

And this guy was busking, with bagpipes. You could hear him for a full kilometre. 

This is a t-shirt I saw for sale. I don’t understand why someone would want to wear it, but more power to them?

And my groceries, safely delivered to my house once I was home! Huzzah!
