7th August – Riverside Adventures

Greetings one and all, it has come to the time that I, Megan, shall take over the sacred duty known as the blogging! Hello! If you would like anything added to the next blog post, then feel free to reach me on any of the mediums listed below:

  • Email: magicalzombiecat@gmail.comMe (to avoid confusion)
  • Send a message on Facebook
  • Text me, provided you have my number (just ask me for it if you would like it)
  • Or of course, find me at a club meeting. If you are unsure as to which one I am, here is a little reminder! Although, I am terrible with names sometimes so you may need to remind me of your name!


Now that is out-of-the-way, let’s get on with what you’re really here for!                                                                           

This week’s antics have brought us to the MShed, a place where you can learn of Bristol’s history, or look at the pretty boats, trains and ships, or both, which ever takes your fancy. We met up at  19:30, though others were there from an earlier time. Some chose to photograph the local scenery, the boats and ships, the train carriages, the cranes and bollards on the harbourside, others chose to photograph the brightly coloured locals for their style, and a few chose to take to the skies, photographing the peculiar shaped balloons, such as the daisy (an american visitor), the flagon, and the Smurf, as they headed towards Bath, being Bristol Balloon Fiesta Weekend. The more adventurous brave souls marched on deeper into town, and were never to be seen again, well, that night anyway.
