An early start this morning as Gary very kindly came and collected Barry and Jamie to take them to Tamworth station. They caught the 1015 train into Birmingham to have a look around and buy something for Barry to wear to our wedding next week.
The amazing Selfridges building near the Bull Ring - a little overcast today!
This shot I took in April 2007, a much brighter day
Jamie with 'The Floozy in the Jacuzzi' fountain in central Birmingham, luckily not working today
WE are NOT amuzed!
Luxury restaurant narrowboats moored at The Mailbox
A reflection shot I took last time we were here, which we have as a large canvas print on the wall at our home in New Zealand
Not such a good one today, but that is what photography is all about - recognising the opportunities when they do arrive
Modern buildings just don't seem to look the same!
The bustling Brindley Place - well not so bustling on a Sunday morning
We had a friend's wedding to go to this afternoon and Dave and Kim came and picked me up so I didn't have to walk the towpath in my little heels! It's good to know people in the area, it can be a challenge getting to places when you're moored in the middle of the countryside!
Barry managed to get to the wedding reception in time for the Sunday Roast - yum! We had a lovely afternoon and evening, thanks Kerry and Gary! Our turn next week ...

Tomorrow I go to my mum and dad's for a few days and will be having a bit of a girlie night on Thursday before our wedding on Saturday. Jamie is taking Barry on a 'bucks night' on Friday, and it's her responsibility to make sure the boat and Barry are ready when I get there! I'm sure all will be absolutely fabulous on the day.
I'm off for a bath, hair straighteners, a washing machine and such home comforts but will miss Barry and the boat :-(
