Hi everyone. Hope you had a great bank holiday/May day weekend (not applicable to all, I’m aware)…

Well, hubby and I went to see the much talked about Clifton Suspension Bridge yesterday, and as much as it’s a real beauty to behold during the day, I understand it’s even more beautiful at night, when the lights are turned on…

A brief history;

The Clifton Suspension Bridge is the symbol of the city of Bristol, and is regarded as one of the world’s greatest bridges…the winning design was submitted in 1830 by 24 year old Isambard Kingdom Brunel, who died aged 53 inĀ  1859…the bridge was however completed and opened in 1864…

Now, on to what you’ve been waiting for; the pictures!

The Bridge…

Thankfully, neither hubby nor myself has a phobia for heights, as the bridge is indeed very high (we could not ascertain the height) above the ground/water…

Oh, by the way, hubby has opened (note, not started…lol) his blog at last…it’s called DiEmptySeries…please go over there and show him some love (by reading and commenting of course!)…

For more info about the Clifton Suspension Bridge, or to plan a visit, you can go to their website;

You can also find more pictures (especially those taken at night, when the bridge is well lit) online.

PS: Have you seen my pictures of the Roman Bath? No? (where were you? lol)…Check them out HERE!

Have a very nice day…

Happy Easter all…hope you’ve been having wonderful easter breaks…I sure have…

Hubby and I have a guest over this weekend…a long time friend of hubby’s, from Glasgow (NY)…we decided to give him a little tour of Bristol and it’s surrounding areas (ok, Bath, to be specific)…on friday, we went to the Bristol Ice Rink…my first time there if I might add…had fun making a “f..l” of myself…I landed flat on my butt (only 1ce, I’m proud to say)…and was helped/coached by a really nice gentle man…Hubby and I are definitely going back for some more ice skating experience soon…

We also took NY to see the relatively new Bristol Cabot Circus…the newest and grandest (don’t quote me) shopping mall in the UK, as well as the John Wesley Chapel…unfortunately though, the Chapel was closed on Friday, so NY had to make do with pictures taken at the gate…

Today, we headed to the beautiful Roman Baths to see what it had to offer, and we were most certainly not disappointed…

Below, I give to you the sights (but not sounds…) of Bath, so you can pictorially voyage to Bath as well…enjoy!
