Sunset on the Smoking Arcade
Okay I’ve been wrestling for too long with the subject I was going to tackle this morning. It’s beaten me – for today – and work awaits. It will be back, I promise, but for now I’m going to share with you some fruits of a early evening late summer walk I took over the weekend.
The fabulous smoking arcade which has to be one of the earliest purpose-built smoking shelters in England looks lovely at the best of times, but in the low sunset it was wonderful.
I wandered round the corner and Sir Walter was also bathed in orange:
One of the strange things about all those works going on on the pier at the moment is that you can actually get to one bit you never used to be able to – a little tongue of walkway looking out over the Thames – just one person deep, from which I got Wood Wharf:
Then went back for a glass of red (much improved since they first opened, when the one thing they fell down on was the wine list) at the Old Brewery, still doing v. well from the lovely weather.
