Battling in Waterloo
Anyway this weekend was the other Waterloo which turns out to be really spectacular in parts and really run down in other parts. There are two beautiful sweeping crescents of houses that stretch for at least half a mile all painted in pastel shades with well preserved front gardens looking over the sea. There is a park and a boating lake, but the little town itself is now like much of Britain, boarded up and past it's best. So the pictures are from that visit and include a window display from a recently closed cake shop called Satterthwaites, that had been in the same location for 102 years. It looked so smart with all the original fittings and a very sad note in the window thanking customers for sustaining them over the years.
