A Stroll Through Plymouth

A Stroll Through Plymouth

The wind and rain lashing against the window as I awoke this morning did not bode well for a day of photography. However, after joining my lovely friends and hosts for the week at Number One for breakfast the rain stopped, the sun broke through the clouds and my fortune had changed. It was time to go exploring. Armed only with the D700 with 24-70mm lens attached I pulled on my boots and headed towards The Hoe, a short five minute walk away.

Venturing towards the Barbican I hopped aboard the small boat over to the Mount Batten peninsula to get a different view on the city. I spent some considerable time here simply contemplating the world and watching the waves come rolling in before climbing the steps up to the Mount Batten Tower which sadly cannot be climbed to get a higher viewpoint.

On returning it was only natural to wander the old cobbled streets of the Barbican area before stopping off at the Strand Tea Room for some well earned sustenance in the form of a local Barbican Crab sandwich.
