So a few photos instead of just one seeing as how keeping up with simply posting one photo per week has been anything but a walk in the park – seeing as how I actually went for a walk in the park today (Hogmanay or New Years Eve to non Scots) I felt I could get in the last photo of the year – and cheat shamelessly by posting a few.
Anyway – as last days of the year goes it was pretty dreich – the snow has now left us and the temp has risen above freezing. It was nice to get out for a walk in Kelvingrove Park after a quick scoot around Kelvingrove Art Gallery.
I am always kinda disheartened when I see the Kelvin during the winter as quite frankly it looks bloody depressing with litter and general shite lying around the place.
The lack of vegetation shows up the true urban feel of the place – like this fence above – usually it kinda blends into the background – at the moment it sticks out like a sore thumb.
But still – there are parts of the river that look lovely if you squint the right way.
Anyway – we walked up to the Snow Bridge – so called as in years gone by folk used to use the gates to dump snow in the river. We walked down to the main weir in the Park – I doubted we would see any Salmon however it was worth a look anyway..
The boy wanted to head off as he had far more important things on his mind…
I hope you have enjoyed reading my diary this year – things sure have changed a lot since I started writing it all those years ago. Come 2011 I will complete a proper review of the last year – until then I hope you have a good one!
See you in 2011 – I raise my goblet of wine to you!
