thou shalt do no murder

>>  Saturday, May 18, 2019

There is very little left of the Netley Royal Victoria Military Hospital.  It was a huge Victorian building.  Beautiful to look at and a great disappointment to Florence Nightingale that it was so impractical and poorly designed as a hospital building, so no great loss to health that it is gone but a sorry day for architecture.

The chapel though is open and a beautiful building.    We went up the tower being as it was such a clear day. 

The chapel itself has been lovingly restored and the museum is very interesting.

But mostly I was took with this "Thou shalt commit no murder" and I was pulling my hair out trying to remember why this rang a bell.

HWMBO reminded me it was in Fremantle Prison.  There the chapel also had this because they executed prisoners. 

Here the hospital was for soldiers returning from war,  initially the Crimean, recovering solders I guess would not be wanting to read "thou shalt not kill"

I think I was most intrigued that this was tucked away at the old chancel with the children's dressing up area in front of it.    I thought it was rather interesting.


Holiday run

>>  Sunday, May 12, 2019

 We were on holiday the week before my half Marathon race so I needed to run a couple of times to keep my legs going.
 We don't live anywhere near a decent river, so it was lovely to have a run alongside one.
 Although the paths were pretty much as I am used to at home.
 I liked looking through the trees at boats rather than sheep.

 The loose horses were around and enjoying scratching posts.
 The loose donkeys were window shopping.
 It was a glorious route
 I was so happy the whole time
 5.5 miles one day, 3.5 miles a few days later.

Perfect easy runs in perfectly easy living style.

I could live like this permanently.
