Dr Foster…

went to Gloucester in a shower of rain.  He stepped in a puddle right up to his middle, and never went there again!  This is one website suggesting the origin of this nursery rhyme.

A couple of weekends ago brought a beautiful spring Saturday, so we decided to visit Gloucester Docks.  These are just a few pics…

Some people live on their canal boats

A sculpture by Wolfgang Buttress(see here and here for details)

You ever seen a square tree???  Neither had I!  Maybe a new form of topiary

Fun – and still in working order

Many warehouses around the Docks – one was restored after a fire

Not a warehouse!

Goodbye Gloucester

For those who are interested, it is possible to walk from the Docks to the new Designer Outlet Gloucester Quays.

We will visit again – there are so many places of interest around the Docks, and we didn’t leave sufficient time to explore them on this occasion.

Your favourite day out?

  1. Love it! Reminded me of our trip to Camden Lock and Regent’s Canal in London. I would love to tour all around the waterways and canals — so fascinating.
