Misc - west/harbour/art/hocq

(updated Thurs 27th Oct - now with gun-toting squirrel!)

From the other side of St.Peter's Valley, there's a distant view of the new airport tower to the side of the church steeple. I found it an interesting contrast of old and new, YMMV :)







It's still green.








.. along the bay a bit, Kempt (Martello) Tower is having some work done.







A Tourist-o-scope at Noirmont...





.. and at the other side of the bay, as low down on the tide as it gets for this Condor - you can barely see it compared to the usual view from South Hill. It had been waiting in the bay for the water to rise enough, I believe 3.5m is required before it can come in.





Container ship Huelin Dispatch leaving.









GF stickers are still around, as are 5 or 6 of his larger pieces...






.. the shoe stencils too are still around...








.. joined now by gun-toting squirrels!








.. and GF's stencilling rival has decided to try placing a canvas artwork in town too. This one brightens up the Parade.








There were some "Power To The People" signs around the town centre during the elections - thanks to Tom for telling us where they point to : "The QR code takes you to islandpower.org, which redirects to channelonline.tv/channelonline_elections2011/ "









Finally, four views from a brief stretching of the legs I enjoyed at Le Hocq one evening in rather pleasant weather for the time of year...






.. right a bit, Seymour Tower in the distance...






.. right some more, the other out-at-sea tower, Icho.








.. and the low-lying 'headland' (is there a good word for that?) at Green Island.

The QR code takes you to islandpower.org, which redirects to channelonline.tv/channelonline_elections2011/
The red man's head looks a bit like JR 'Bob' Dobbs, from the Church of the SubGenius.
I'm off to look for gun-toting squirrels...

Thanks Tom, my QR reader (browser add-on) couldn't make sense of it.
I haven't seen any squirrels in town, most are up Maufant way.
Off now to research this Dobbs chap :)
Thanks

A different face but similar due to the clip-art style - and missing the pipe :)

Thanks for an interesting diversion!

I see someone took a very similar shot of the tower & church and it appeared in the JEP recently!
