Bristol Pictures

Some pictures from our stay in Bristol floating harbour.  We both feel like we have eaten (and drunk) our way around the city, but we have walked a considerable distance as well, we know to our cost that Bristol is built on a series of hills.  Thanks to Keith & Diane for the recommendations of places to visit, we think we did most of them.

We left this morning after a cruise around the harbour and have made our way back to Bath.

Clifton Suspension Bridge

towards Bristol

the Avon Gorge

Balloons off early this morning

The Matthew (which apparently sailed to Canada 
last year and is off to France in a few weeks)
