I was on my way to the Pharmacy and Tesco so I decided to take my camera along for the ride. Here are a few topics.
Let us start with a nice friendly seagull
Thalatta and HMS Express are still with us.
It’s days like this that you see things in the sunshine that you don’t bother with at other times. It is so nice out here that the rubbish hits you in the face. The port or the council, not sure which, used to come along with some “grabbers” and pick all of this up but we haven’t seen them for a while. It would be good if the Aurora did their own clear up as it would look better for their customers.
It was definitely summer around the Cult café. There was a band setting up with Radio Suffolk in attendance.
Have we moved to Felixstowe beach? No, it’s just some deckchairs on the “grass” outside the Cult!
The grass has disappeared all over. We are desperate for rain here in Suffolk. Have a look at the leaves on these trees on the Podium! No green left at all. It looks like Autumn has come early.
Having mentioned the flats, I thought I would give you a last look before the remedial work begins on 15th with the removal of the balconies!
I am told that the big “pipe” that goes up in front of all the balconies is for show – “to make it look like a boat” was the comment the other night!
Two weeks time, this will all start to come down. Once the balconies are down and the scaffolding up, we will be wrapped in a fireproof membrane which, they assure us, we will be able to see through and get a breeze through, but as they are locking the patio doors and barring the windows, what breeze we will get is anyone’s guess. One thing I am sure of is that the wrapping will be nothing like this building on Duke Street because the most open wraps are NOT fireproof and once the building is inhabited that is the biggest parameter. Anyway, this looks good.
Well, that is all I have from my roll around yesterday. I will try and get one more in before they start work. I expect my efforts will be driven by that for a while.
Have a nice week. David
