What I saw on my bike today…a violin maker’s workshop

Posted under What I saw today



Whenever I go past this place I marvel that a violin maker’s workshop would be ‘just right there’…how very unusual, I always think. But, then, they have to be somewhere I suppose and it’s a lovely addition to the many interesting places to poke your nose in to around here.

Today was my first ‘in full daylight’ cycle ride. Until now, constrained by the summer holidays, I’ve limited my rides to the evening when MrSpud was around to mind the boys. Today I was sans Megaboys and snuck out for an hour for a ride and a solo lunch, such a treat! There was a little more traffic and the added complication of finding a spot to lock my bike up when I wanted to get off. It was harder than I’d thought. A surprising irritation of bike riding.

After lunch I spied a beautiful church, bathed in celestial light…


…and silence and shadows…seen through a glass, darkly…
