Now before you get all excited thinking this is a glamorous 'Interiors Before and After' post, I am warning you, this is a 'Neighbourhood Before and After' post..... as I am rather excited about our new ferry terminal ....James has got his income back, through selling 'The Big Issue' to ferry passengers....and I can hop on a boat again and go places.
As you remember, our ferry terminal washed down the river with 'the flood' in January. It has been a sorry sight for way too long.
That's river sludge and other offensive material that was extremely fragrant.
A rather average 'Ta Da' picture of the new terminal...
... but it was really early in the morning and there was no light... well that's my excuse anyway.
Look who I found, hanging out in his new digs? James!..... and his friend Ed.
Ed was on his way to Uni (on the ferry, yay!... from the new terminal, yay!).
Lets do a 'before and after' of James.
Check out that gorgeous ferry terminal.
It ain't goin' nowhere. It's all iron and concrete and the ceilings are like 20 feet high.
Trying taking this one away Mr Flood.
Remember Karen's place (in my street)...
... where the disgustingly foul flood waters made it half way up the walls of her second floor?....
...well it's on stilts now... it's on it's way up!
And this has nothing to do with anything. I just love going past this place every day.
This is the before and the after. It hasn't changed in decades I've been told.
Look at the early morning sun on it. Takes me back to another time.
Wow, Thursday already! Have a great day!
PS Oh, and I ate this! The most delicious thing I have ever eaten. Big statement. But true.
