A Walk around Southampton

For the August Bank Holiday I went to visit my daughter, Izzi, in Southampton where she is at University.  On the Sunday evening we went for a walk from her flat around the West Quay shopping area.  Not being a very "shopping" kind of person I normally stay away from such places, but at least it was mercifully quiet.

The final picture shows a statue of Isaac Watts (Doctor of Divinity, no less) who appeared, from a distance, to be holding an ice cream cone.  On closer inspection it turned out to be a large pink dildo, so I guess that makes him Isaac Watts DDD.  It also puts Henry VIII and his chair leg into perspective: clearly a better class of student in Cambridge...
