Dark to dark

Dawn, Salisbury PlainI know that autumn is well here when I set out in the dark for a customer site at the start of the day ... and by the time I get to my hotel in the evening, it's dark as well. But there's a beauty in the rising sun over Salisbury plain, and I'm lucky to have a camera that captures some of the atmosphere.


Salisbury at dawnMists were rising from the river Avon above Salisbury, and a few streetlights from the northern suburbs twinkled through the trees.


Holiday Inn Express, West EndThis hotel has been here for six years "but the other wing and the lights are much newer" according to the general manager, who was out on the lawn with his deputy as I took this picture. Very interesting that he described his hotel - with a room rate of £69.95 - as a "budget hotel". I must give that some thought. But I will admit that the prices of some of the others around here, between Portsmouth and Southampton rather scared me off.

The rooms have what I need. Space. I can get on line. Comfortable bed. En suite. Quiet. Well stocked hospitality tray. And it's been a long day ... so I may go off and watch the TV; the only slight downer being that it's medium rather than large, and I need to carefully decide which buttons to press to avoid the pay section.

This is a page archived from The Horse's Mouth at http://www.wellho.net/horse/ - the diary and writings of Graham Ellis. Every attempt was made to provide current information at the time the page was written, but things do move forward in our business - new software releases, price changes, new techniques. Please check back via our main site for current courses, prices, versions, etc - any mention of a price in "The Horse's Mouth" cannot be taken as an offer to supply at that price.
