DSC_2106 A regular haunt - the royal standard at lyme


DSC_2125 Lyme has a good selection of colourful beach huts although they seem quite small


DSC_2135 this artwork in east reach is quite new - it is to promote a local tatoo parlour


DSC_2144 i assumed this lady is protesting aginst the number of roads that have been closed in central taunton with a "road closure" sign in front of her burnt to cinders - she might just be watching the busker but someone seems to have it in for road closures!


DSC_2146 An eye catching display of bags in a shop in taunton - not sure what the shop is callled but the signs say "outdoors" - not sure if they are bags though


DSC_2147 watch out for sharks in taunton library!


DSC_2158 this footbridge is part of taunton's 21 million pound nidr scheme - it replaces the old "40 steps" bridge and has ramps that can be used by cycles and wheelchairs - the old bridge just had 40 steps at each end


DSC_2163 cycle racks for tdbc council staff at the deane house offices - they look fairly secure compared with some racks and are covered - i prefer a brompton which can just be parked under a desk but for people who use non-brompton bikes these would be handy racks


DSC_2169 2 flags - one flag for each match


DSC_2170 i wonder how many reflections of myself i can count?


DSC_2187 portaloo - one section of the nidr road connecting the a38 priory roundabout with the a358 near taunton school


DSC_2191 the old "kingston loop" bridge - it appears this bridge will be gone very shortly as it will be replaced with a new road bridge forming part of the NIDR road scheme


DSC_2192 nidr pipes - these pipes lie on the path of the new road adjecent to whitehall in taunton - the 2 main town churches are visible behind the pipes


DSC_2197 it looks from this sign that you cannot enter this area unless you are a shopper or have "written permission" - i wonder how you get the written permission if you are not a shopper and are therefore barred from entering.


DSC_2208 praying that his bus will turn up soon


DSC_2209 there seem to be a lot of dragons popping up in taunton recently - this has been decorated with sharpie marker pens
