172/365 – Pretty views

So, now that is vacation time at the university, we (the library) close at 5 o’clock on a Friday. That means we all have to hang about, making sure that there are no students left to be locked in. Of course, the library is quiet normally, but when there’s no-one but us, there’s an extra level of quietness. Here’s the view I had whilst waiting for final lock-up time.

Today we went out to a pub that was about fifteen minutes’ drive away, as our local town was full of Morris dancers and tourists and we wouldn’t have been able to find a place to eat (we had Aravar visiting us). This was the large tree opposite the pub. I have a feeling that it is an oak tree, although we didn’t get close enough to determine the species.

    Looks like the Party Tree to me…. 😀

    And that library while sort of spooky looking all empty and all, is beautiful.

    I love being in the library before we open and after we close. There’s something so peaceful about it. Your library is absolutely beautiful!

    Sigh- such architecture! What a lovely place to work! I can’t imagine living in a place that’s so active (events and tourists). I was thinking the same thing whilst we were in Appenzell- how the locals deal with all the tourists 😉
