Rough guide to Quayside for Babs

So there is a friend and author that I have been sending message s through on Facebook she has one of the biggest hearts for nature and the environment that I have ever witnessed in my life. Her book is called Babs2Brisbane and can be bought on Amazon and is all about her traveling to Australia by none flight method in order to get to a wedding and it’s a wonderful read.

I wont spoil it for you and let you know if she got to the wedding you will have to buy the book to find out.

The image above is from her travels many years ago. Not long after she met me I think. I had no idea I would meet someone that would run off to Austalia just after we met.

Why Babs has put up with me off and on over the years I really don’t know she is a very kind soul. She is also a good musician.

I told Babs I would get some views of the Historic Exeter Quayside near to where I lived to look at.

It was a little dull morning but you can just make out the Haven Banks which is on the side of the sports centre
Next photo is the actual Quayside
The bridge takes you from my side of the river onto the side where the Devon Wildlife Trust Office is based
The Bridge is called Cricketpitt Bridge which is the same as the name of the Mill that Devon Widlife Trust built.

My old office for where I used to work for South West Widlife Fundraising before the Heartless Bastards sacked me.

Me and Babs both worked for Devon Widlife Trust at different times and I got made redundant by them after the Foot and Mouth outbreak while I was having a Psychosis, what’s known in the trade as kicking you when your down.

A wild flower outside of BT office on Quayside possibly a snowdrop but I do not know!
I thought these little beauties were pretty
On my way to the shop now and I see these two fellers on the path so haev to go around them.
There they are again
There are some more birds in this last photo.

Well Babs you have not been to the Quayside in Exeter yet and I hope you like the little guided tour I did for you.

Thank you for being a good friend and I am sorry I am a little scaty I am not always this bad honest. Lots of Love Huw x

This song is by Emily who runs the Angel Open mic in Exeter on a Wednesday night she is a living Legend and her band are great. She also has a night on the Quayside once a fortnight. Hope you like.

Another one of Exeter’s folk – I last saw Rosie Eade sing at the Bowling Green Pub in Exeter back in 2019.

  1. Ha ha, thanks Huw, that was really nice. I think I have been to a little bit of it before and I do remember the swans. It looks like a nice place to live. I like your train of thought writing and the details. I think they might be white bluebells but can’t see from the pictures. Thanks for the plug too! Ha ha 😁
