It was so nice last night when Clare and I ventured out that I said "I really should've brought the camera." So we decided to come out this evening and revisit today's sights, which all happen to have been illuminated.
A visit to the bridges that were a couple of minutes' walk from our apartment brought us some familiar sights:
