Reflections of the very sympathetic 90's development in the basin
Going continental and just sitting beside the wharf enjoying a beer and a dish of olives.
I was a bit concerned that a bar/restaurant in the basin would bring with it noise and drink fuelled idiots but I found that I managed to keep myself in check, didn't get too drink fuelled and hid the idiocy rather well... Seriously, no disturbance at all and a requirement to clear the outside tables by 10.30pm because essentially this is a residential area.
The cupboard was bare when we came into Union Basin, the plan being to stock up with food when we were here but we have been lazy and taken advantage on being close to a town. Thursday evening we wandering into town and had a curry and last night we again walked in but this time for an pizza (Joe) and a salad (me).
During the day we had both independently gone walk-about . Joe found a barbers and was shawn and I found the Joules shop and bought things! I also found Frank Gilbert's wonderful emporium see below..
And the inside is just as crammed and just as enticing...wonderful shop!
The grammar school as was, and a signature of the town right in the heart next to the church of St. Dionysus's
