Yesterday...

Today I got up late at nine or something and drove to my site at eleven when my father has called me to translate his new contract which I had promised to translate for three days already, so I drove back to his firm to help father remembering that my brother had asked me to help him too yesterday and drove him to a future party place with a lot of necessary equipment. Yesterday I had told him that I will be working at my site all day long cause I have only two warm rainless days to finish floor and I will be busy but after I had helped father to translate his one million contract (I am joking of course) I have found no argument not to help my bro too. I have taken a camera with me to make some new photos of my site work and instead I started to make photos of the environment around while I was waiting for them for two hours while they were collecting their things.

small number of photosCollapse )

Photos from our South city – Rostov na Donu.
Actually I wasn’t at Rostov itself but at its suburbs where my mother’s line relatives are living and where I had spent a lot of time at my childhood. I had no desire to make any cause the event forcing me to go there was not inspiring for make anything. Anyway a day after I was so surprised to see how everything is changing fast there that I did some photos.

[reposted post]Васильсурск или Малые Жигули

По уже сложившейся традиции, выбрались вчера с pavelsharonov в очередную поездку выходного дня. На этот раз мы посетили поселок Васильсурск. В интернетах пишут, что раньше его называли Малыми Жигулями. Полностью подтверждаю - рельеф действительно холмистый и весьма живописный (надо будет повторить во время золотой осени). Второе подтверждение этого звания в том, что в городе, видимо, собраны все авто марки "Ока" нашей страны - эти клопы там повсюду. Действительно - "малые "Жигули". Иначе не скажешь )

🌻 Как таковых, значимых достопримечательностей в городке нет. Повсюду резные домики с мансардами. Красивые, в Чувашии они стали бы достопримечательностью, но в Нижегородской области они в каждом селе. Впрочем, прокатиться по улочкам все же стоит - среди стандартных "деревяшек" изредка попадаются очень необычные домики. Здесь много уютно-теннистых берёзовых улочек.

⛪ На въезде в городок расположена достойная внимания Хмелевская церковь. Спуск к ней из города по высокой лестнице, возле храма живописнейшее мелководье (см. предыдущий пост). Самые эффектные виды на Волгу открываются с места под названием Шишкин мыс. Это прекрасная природная смотровая площадка. Обедали мы в доме отдыха "Васильсурский". 300 руб, по провинциальным меркам дороговато, но чрезвычайно сытно. На территории базы уютные и, опять же, совсем не дешёвые деревянные коттеджи, которые часто снимают семьи, а ещё чаще - люди, приезжающие сюда порыбачить. В городе часто встречаются джипы с лодками на прицепах. Номера, как правило, не местные.

🐟 Вообще, Васильсурск - это своеобразная рыбачья столица. Сложилось ощущение, что город живёт исключительно рыбалкой. Что и понятно - здесь чисто и тихо, а вокруг бескрайние водные просторы - город расположен на месте слияния Волги и Суры... С трассой М7 город связывает довольно плохой асфальт, грунтовка, либо паромная переправа. Это классическая русская провинция. Но она не грузит. Сюда хорошо просто заехать и поехать дальше. А если вы рыбак или любите девственную природу - то это точно ваше место...

Прогулка по городуCollapse )

Little non-artistic photos...

We had visited near city two weeks ago, we were just walking around while we had been planning to swim at first but we have become so spoiled with father's basin and visiting a remote Oka river beach where there are not so many people and noises that after sitting for twenty minutes on a Protvino carrier beach we have moved to walk. I had showed my wife an old destroyed at WW2 mill plant - it is interesting that she had studied at this city and never saw this so popular place. When we tried to find a waterfall but failed and drove back home to father's sauna, where the strength has finally left us.

The photos are not intereting to me at all but I at last decided to drop them here anyway... )

Protvino carrier beach - I did more interesting for me winter photos of it.

Absolutely incredible, the temperature is up to 25 and no rains. I am starting to think the summer is going forever... it is suits my work now cause I need at least two rainless weeks more to finish basement floor and started walls which will be easier task to do, I have poured only half of it cause have lost one week with my travel to Rostov.
Anyway looking out of the window I am a little afraid of such big climatic changes here in Russia... - I am certain we will see a lot of weather jumps around the world in near future cause I noticed long ago - if there is no water in Russia - seventh flat part of our planet's land then somewhere is flooding down the cities or fresh water in some ocean is hitting right now to rage some continent... strange to think when I like the warm weather so much that it is more frightful than amusing now...

Yesterday I was pouring concrete for the ground floor. Every time I am making something for a first time I am supper excited, doing something new is much more interesting for me than doing the routing things for days. I prepared for this for two days, did I thought everything is possible to make work easier though it wasn't easy anyway even that my son was helping me. I did three on six meters of a floor, was working for fourteen hours.
The floor has got not very flat but I correct it after when will be putting a tile on it I do believe. Second problem after flattering was the total darkness after nine o'clock. The variety to fall was high and I was forced stop pretending that I am on a dance floor got my phone out using it as a torch. Now after I have rest a little had a swim, have been sunbathing for two hours I am going to prepare the place for making nest three meters of a floor at Sunday when every normal people will be resting at beaches.
It is incredible weather which is not stopping surprise me - no clouds, no rains, sunshine all day long and twenty eight degrees - absolutely gorgeous!
