The sun shone on the journey up, but not much use when you’re in the car.  A brief  photo stop at Powfoot on the Solway estuary to take advantage of the lovely light.

Powfoot

Sunday was wet, cold and grey – perfect conditions for a visit to the Necropolis next to the cathedral.  The chimney belching out the smoke/steam is the Chivas Regal Distillery on the south side of the city.

Glasgow Cathedral

Below is the coat of arms for Glasgow city:

There’s the tree that never grew,
There’s the bird that never flew,
There’s the fish that never swam,
There’s the bell that never rang.

Here’s the story if it’s of interest.

A very inviting signpost on Wednesday morning, but unfortunately the glorious sunrise could only be enjoyed on the way to work.
