After the oatcakes we went to Dudsons, but they were shut. It’s nice pottery, but you can’t buy it if the shop door is locked. Then we went to the Portmeirion shop, where Julia went shopping and I took a photo of the crack in the winscreen that had happened on the +way . Then I did some selfies. There was also a mural to photograph in the car park, though someone parked in front of it as I prepared to take the photo.
Here are the results.
I attempted to introduce a range of facial expressions – weary, downtrodden and resigned. That’s the full range of expressions for a married man shopping with his wife. Can you tell the difference?
This is the mural. It’s very close to the pattern on some of the Portmeirion pottery, which is probably not a coincidence.
After that we moved on to the Etruria Industrial Museum. It was shut. I re-read the website when I got home. It doesn’t make it obvious that it’s closed most of the time, though the sign does.
Fortunately we were able to do something good before we left Stoke, but you will have to wait to see what we did because it’s getting late.
