A walk in the park …

Local authorities can get Christmas displays spectacularly wrong but the lights in the Sele at Hexham always please – plain, simple, white and strung from the trees against the backdrop of the Abbey and Beaumont Street.  Last night I took a walk in the park armed with the Fuji – there are probably laws against this sort of thing.  As it turned out, it was well timed. Today heavy rain has returned followed by snow, the wet slushy variety, all of this to coincide with the Hexham Christmas Market – plenty turned out but there was no temptation to linger as water dripped from the awnings and then down your back.  I will probably acquire the Christmas spirit before the 25th, but first it must stop raining:

The Sele ... The Sele ... War memorial ... A walk in the park ...

I then wandered down Beaumont Street, eerily quiet and closed to traffic in preparation for the Christmas Market:

The closing ... Wardhaughs ... Find the Fake Monkey ... The Queens Hall ...
