Many of the houses in the town are still regular family homes. The residents must be quite used to tourists wandering around now; I heard that when tourists first started visiting the town, they would just walk into people's homes for a nose around!

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

Lovely shot, Daryl. All simple things of life, yet very beautiful shot. Its all about the perspective of the shot that makes it look beautiful, like this one.
