Evening Stroll

2012.05 Glasgow (16 of 40)
I may have gotten a bit lucky in Glasgow last week. It seemed as if it rained most of the day, but 3 out of the 4 evenings after work it was clear enough I was able to stroll around the city center and people watch - one of my very favorite things to do.

In fact, I got so involved in the people watching and just enjoying the long days and having a new place to explore, that I nearly forgot to take photos. Which, in all honesty was somewhat nice. I think I felt more connected without the camera up to my eye.

I enjoyed exploring some of the shops and restaurants, Jamie Oliver's restaurant was my favorite on this trip (it's called Jamie's Kitchen.) If only the food coming out of my kitchen were half that good!

The one surprise, for me at least, was that most of the shops closed around 6 PM. Which, looking back may have been a good thing. I didn't make a single purchase the entire week. Which may just be a first when visiting a new city.

When was the last time you visited a new city and didn't buy a thing?

This David Nail song has been in my head all week - it could have to do with all the rain in Glasgow: Let it Rain.

Beautiful photos....what fabulous architecture. I went to an event recently and forgot my camera. I felt naked. It was different for sure.

This looks like a great place to explore Jamie.
I love to people watch too, and I always find it amazing at how quickly time passes when I do!

I don't think Jamie's restaurant was open when I was in Glasgow...or I wasn't a foodie then, not sure which.

I'm loving how much in common some of our travel paths are, lol.
