Sue and I took a trip to Winchester to visit our son and his partner.

It’s a charming city, crammed with beautiful old buildings. One of them hold the Deanery Bookshop, where I bought half a dozen secondhand paperbacks, mainly crime fiction.

There’s also a thriving market, and I picked up a few old vinyl records, all jazz. And if that weren’t enough, we visited coffee shops and eateries, and even a bar or two. What’s not to like?

I hope you enjoy the photos.
