You can tell it is getting close to Christmas. For a start you can walk down the street and fine groups of people singing carols. Churches with their doors open offering coffee and mince pies. The smell of mulled whine wafting down the street and Storm Troopers boogying on down to the carol singers.
Stokes Road had a thing going on. All along the street there were different things going on. I went with a walk with Elayne and it was really nice. The carol singers sounded good. There were several music bands, all pretty good and quite a few people which was nice to see.
Crowds like this are good, because you can do street photography. The two storm troopers were enjoying themselves, as was everybody else.
I don’t like driving on Stokes Road. Parking is allowed at places on both sides, and the road is really too narrow for free flowing traffic in both directions. I watched an episode three drivers were clearly not thinking about what was coming towards them – two of the gosport busses. How they ever expected for both sets of traffics to pass at one of the constriction points I’ll never know. They ended up just sitting there and staring at each other, hoping that that thee busses can get past without scraping their cars. It was quite comical really, if only it hadn’t been so ridiculous.
I went home.
