Where In Coventry?

To those of you who like to take photographs:

This photo was taken on impulse whilst on a moving escalator the other day.
Mad rush followed to get phone out and take photo of something directly above me.
It was fun and I didn't lose my balance :).

To those of you who know Coventry:

Any idea where this was taken?

Fosse Way

IPhone shot taken yesterday on the Fosse Way
near the village of Stretton-under-Fosse.

Stretton means 'settlement on a Roman Road'.

Can you see (very faintly over the black sign on the M6 motorway) Coventry Cathedral
some 8 miles away.

Thatched Roof Thursday #80 - Shottery Village

The photo above is how I first saw this 
cottage from the road (just down the street from Anne Hathaway's Cottage).

Luckily I was able to get a little closer (below).

My favorite photo is the one below taken on our walk back to the car.  
The addition of the 2 horses (and there is a cat too) 
just makes this thatched roof home look extra special.

Shottery Village is located just outside Stratford-Upon-Avon.
Well worth a visit.  Only 30 minutes by car from Coventry.

Warwick - Spot The Castle

Today the sun came out so we abandoned all our 'to do' list
jobs and went for a walk at St. Nicholas Park, Warwick.

How exciting it is for me to look across the park 
and see a real castle. Love it!
(iPhone shots)

Hope your week is going well :).

Framed (Again)

 Taken last week from inside the bird hide at
Coombe Country Park.  I love sharing photos from this location.

I now know that what looks like a fishing rod next to the lake
is designed to be a perch for birds, like kingfishers.

The photo below was taken yesterday.  
No fog and no sunshine either.

This is the path we follow to the bird hide 
which is to the right of where I am standing.

It's Monday.  Have a good week!

PS.  Happy Birthday, Nadine, for last Saturday.
