However, yesterday we took the day off. We left at around 9am without any set plan of where to go and headed north towards Gloucestershire. We stopped in Chipping Sodbury for tea & cake and then decided to go on to Herefordshire.
I really wanted to treat myself to a bunch of dahlias in Chipping Sodbury but knew that by the time we got back home they would have suffered with the heat...so I photographed them instead.
We stopped in Ross-on-Wye to have lunch and explore the town as neither of us had been there before. There were quite a few antique shops, charity shops and pretty individual shops.
There is a very good cook shop in the main street
View looking towards the river Wye and Monmouth
Effigies inside the church
A candle and a prayer for a loved one.
In my next post, I will take you to an enchanted forest where we stumbled across a film crew, filming a scene for a movie due out in June 2012...
