Until recently I had myself down as a suburbanite, but not any more. The fight of DD and DS into the city centre has given me the chance to explore the waterfront, the old centre and the university area all over again and I’m suddenly finding even more excuses to go there. Visitors are now being dragged to Clifton village rather than Cheddar and to look at the Wills Building rather than Wells. Hey, my birthday bash was even in ultra cool Zero Degrees microbrewery, instead of the usual neighbourhood pub or pizzeria. Maybe I’m searching (in vain) for my lost youth, but now Cabot Circus has opened and we have shopping too! No, I haven’t been recruited by the Bristol Tourist office, but I have commissioned DD to take some pictures which I’ll post here soon as. Meanwhile here’s our new shopping mecca courtesy of Pip on Flickr.
