A trip into the big city tonight . . . well Cockermouth anyway !
'Tis Christmas and the town is celebrating the fact through the decorations and ornate shop windows.
Do join me on a stroll about town tonight.
Driving in past the Swan Inn at the top of town . . . after finding a quick parking space.
Photo taken, I continue on down into the centre of town.
Down a side alleyway, Cockermouth History Wall is well illuminated.
The window of the Opticians is shimmering so much it makes your eyes go funny !
Not all the windows were brightly coloured.
The travel shop was promoting holidays north of the Arctic Circle.
Humming Bird is offering the perfect gift for your home.
. . . and Firns the Hardware shop offers a sleigh full of gifts for you to chose from.
Big screen . . . no a large 3D model of the Nativity in Market Place.
Fancy a quick wash and blow dry for Christmas ?
Back in the main Street . . . the pub is named after a famous son of Cockermouth.
In the gardens of the Trout Hotel . . . as the daylight finally fades.
Back to the car and a final look down Main Street and the Christmas Tree on the central island.
