Memories of a pint of beer after the walk..........

Memories of a pint of beer after the walk..........
All our pubs are still closed. This was taken through the window of the Royal Oak, Langstone Harbour (which used to be a lovely place to sit and enjoy a beer after a walk). All the stock and glasses etc have been removed and there is nothing left on the bar. All I could see except these beer pump handles, was the out-of-focus reflection of part of the harbour. The sun shining on the window gave this a really surreal look which I liked. I hope you do too:-)

Try viewing large, on black.

Vision surréaliste qui ne peut être due à l'abus de l'alcool, puisque les pubs sont fermes :-)

The image of you peering longingly through the pub window made me laugh Keith!! On a sobering note...I hope our pubs survive this long shut-down! They are so unique to the UK.
As for your picture, I think its superb. No sun today to give such a pleasing effect!!

Your picture makes me thirsty, Keith ! And draft beer is much better than beer from bottles.

Looks attractive gleaming in the sun. So you can only look and wish! Over here we go back to level 1 tomorrow after a week or two of no new cases of the virus and only 1 active case left in the whole country. Hope it does not return!!!

Glad you like this one Eunice. Thanks very much.

NZ has done really well getting to this stage relatively quickly.............I wish our Prime Minister and his colleagues were as sensible as yours!

Qui, au 1er janvier de cette année, aurait imaginé la fermeture de tous les bars en France et et de tous les pubs en Angleterre ? Personne ou on l'aurait traité de fou. Ou alors, aurait-on imaginé ,peut être , le cas d'une invasion d'extra terrestes qui n'auraient supporté que le jus de betterave ? Celà est arrivé (et ailleurs qu'en France et en Angleterre) Mais je pense que dans ces deux pays ça a une valeur symbolique particuliere. Comme dit la chanson "Il reviendra le temps des cerises"...enfin si les étourneaux ne les mangent pas toutes. Courage Keith, ce pub rouvrira bientôt. Amitié. Jean Paul

I don't think back in January that anyone could have imagined we'd be in the middle of a world-wide pandemic less than two months later..!!

I think it will be many months yet until we all get back to any sort of normality, and I wonder how many pubs will survive to open again...........not to mention many other businesses.

oui, c'est comme une explosion, l'effet de souffle vient aprés. Comme on dit ici "Il faut s'accrocher aux branches".J'ai beaucoup lu ces temps derniers sur les épidémies de peste, pas si anciennes que ça et qui avaient un impact terrible. Et pourtant, la vie reprenait vite le dessus. Mais les le monde était moins complexe que maintenant..Comme le disait Julos Beaucarne (Un chanteur Belge) il y a déjà longtemps dans une de ses chansons: "Peut être faudrait-il en revenir à un peu plus de simplicité" , ? Quoi qu'il en soit bonne fin de semaine à toi. J Paul
