Like a walk in two parks..

Well, not really like a walk in the park – more actually like a totally real walk in the parks. And by parks I mean Kelvingrove Park and Glasgow Green.

The Summer has no well and truly left us and Autumn is spiraling out of control heading towards true winter – we are now on the long haul to Christmas and then an uphill struggle towards Spring.

Yikes!

This is you weekly water photo. 44 0f 52

Thankfully there was nobody fishing as I walked down the river in Kelvingrove Park – sometimes you find the odd chancer who thinks the close season is a good time to get away from the crowds and have a fish in peace, they do not realize the law is there for a reason. The park was lovely although very cold – first day I have had my winter jumper on.

The water looks cold as well…

As we walked through one of the loveliest parks in Glasgow I noticed some tents and stuff set up – I walked over to investigate. It turns out that the fight against Bankers which started on Wall Street has hit Glasgow in true weegie style - instead of hitting the bankers where they might continue to see it like in the middle of the city they have decided to move the occupy to a rather pleasant park next to the museum.

"sticking it to the man?"

 Anyway, my second walk in the park was in the evening – seeing as how it was Guy Fawkes Night we went to Glasgow Green – for those not in the UK every year we celebrate someone who tried to blow up the Houses of Parliament by lighting fireworks and watching explosions in the sky – we also wonder what life would have been like if he he had successful instead of caught, hung and then cut up into wee pieces.

I took a photo however the most interesting thing is not the fireworks – can you see that wee dot to the left of the fireworks in the sky?

Explosions in the Sky

Prepare to be geeked! That dot is not in fact a star – it is Jupiter and has been gracing out skies for a few weeks now as the brightest “star” in the sky. After the firework festivities I headed out to Mugdock to use my new 15×70  Celestron Skymaster binoculars (prepare yourself for a review) – seemingly the neighbors are freaked out out by someone who has a tripod with giant binoculars set up in their living room.

If you have nothing to hide I say…

I really enjoy reading your comments - say something!
