a stroll around Bradford-on-Avon

Mark and I had intended to spend the week after Easter at our holiday flat in Dorset but we have friends staying there for now, as their flat was so badly damaged in the storms. It worked out pretty well though as it gave us a chance to do some work in the garden – slate chips around the raised beds and along the dried up stream bed – and have some local day trips.

We always like to go for a bit of a wander when we can and headed off to Bradford-on-Avon, for a stroll along the river path and back by the canal before pottering around the centre.

while I get most put out by snails on my veggies, I do think they are rather beautiful

love this cafe on a barge – shame we weren’t hungry at that point in our walk

this road was closed to traffic for repairs, but the band still brought pedestrian visitors to the shop
