We had a tourist day walking around Clifton and Bristol in brilliant sunshine today. Of course the Clifton suspension bridge across the Avon gorge but also the SS Great Britain, the largest ship ever powered by steam. Both engineered by I. K. Brunel. I used to cycle across the suspension bridge after school in Clifton and there was one Sunday where we saw the rusting hull of the old ship come back to the dock where she was built for restoration. Now her six masts tower over Bristol's floating harbour that has become a truly attractive waterfront.
