Leaving The Crease: Admiral's Advice: Snapshots.

Last Wednesday  ( 25 / 9 , my friend DM took me for a day-out at Worcester to see the last cricket game of the season.
The weather was good, with the temperatures never slipping below 19degs. We never actually felt the full force of the sun's rays; but it was  very agreeable outside viewing.

We were able to go in the new stand, which had recently been opened.

We were seated in the bottom tier. The white building to the right is the new Hotel/ Motel, which is being completed.

It afforded us a splendid vantage point overlooking the field of play.

We were in fact 'squarer on ' than the above picture indicates.

Most of the people watching were roughly our age and although immediately above us was a bar,  (which included two ' Sky" televisions; ) I saw no-one bring down an alcoholic drink; merely imbibing tea and coffee.
I also  noticed many toilet facilities throughout the ground.

As, you might well say, a very civilised affair indeed.

The last shot shows, a view through the bar window, looking out onto the pitch.

The badge of Worcester County Cricket is of three pears; hence the fruit depicted upon the above window.
As DM said; " It was a perry, perry good day !. "


Cheltenham Expects........... Think of harmony as a skill to be developed; once you have it,  you will be better equipped to achieve results


Yesterday ( 27 / 9 ) D and I visited two National Trust properties in Worcestershire. They were ' The Fleece Inn ' at Bretforton, near Evesham and " Greyfriars' House and Garden. "  in Worcester City.

The Fleece Inn is a half- timbered medieval farmhouse, which was first licensed as a pub in 1848.
 We had the 'pie of the day ' and I had a lovely pint of beer " Dark Island "  from the Orkney Islands; one of the range of guest beers served there, at this CAMRA establishment.

The pie accompanied by mash and local vegetables was a triumph.

The Fleece has a reputation for holding local folk music concerts. These take place in the nearby barn.
Inside the barn we saw two lovely paintings of morris dancers.

 A very enjoyable trip.

More Here: The Fleece.

Having enjoyed beer and pie, we motored onto " Greyfriars' House and Garden. "  This property is situated  right in the centre of  Worcester. It is a timber-framed merchant's house with a delightful walled garden.

With the late summer sun shining brightly, we enjoyed a cup of tea, in such pleasant surroundings;  yet only a few yards only away from Worcester's  busy streets ; rounding of an excellent day-out.


Finally, with night's drawing in,  here is a last look at Rhossili beach taken at our last visit there.
