First, an evening trip down town to book club, which also included a mini-adventure of an after-dark trip on the bus. I did warn that these adventures would be 'mini', and not overly exciting, but travelling on a bus is a novelty for me.

|Look above the shops. It's more interesting up there|
At night the city looks different, the lights at the church and above the shops making features stand out that in daytime I'd never notice.
|River Derwent and Council House|
A few days later I was back in daytime, a wonderfully sunny day for January, with the Council House reflected in the Derwent, Exeter Bridge casting intriguing shadows, and the old Corn exchange building looking very imposing.

Walking back to the car park I even spotted blossom and early crocuses.
All it takes is a minute to stop and look around.
