Tradition. White Hut in December. Dinner at The View. Being blown by a gale.
Just in time. Cosy.
Dorchester along the river. In the autumn. Colourful.
Found, one yummy Penguin, left behind by Herbie. Should I munch?
A beautiful late afternoon walk at Blickling Hall.
Family pic (thanks awesome Aunty Fay!)
and a nearly family picture capturing the boys.
Some monochrome too.
Hotel Rival, Stockholm.
Who's training who?
Planning application for a small hydro power station on the River at Goring.

I'm better looking too said Ewok.
No milk. Ewok took me the scenic way to the coop. Problem solved.
Stomping around Oxford.
"I didn't know Yogi can swim" said Grandad.
"He can't" said Finn.
Harvey wins. Again.
Gamers at play.
A walk with the boys.
Chess with H. I won. Mostly.
"I always look like this." said Yogi.
Kaffeologie S Filter for an AeroPress. Coffee. Through a filter.
The lookouts. They look out and look out. Until they see something that they are looking out for.
And then, they bark.
Sone folks from Star Wars came to visit.
Eden, in September, for some careers in the tech industry type stuff. Lovely.
Too much Yogi? I'm off.
Lanterns and the Contribution Poem at nearly the end of Bunkfest.
Or maybe second.
I missed the downpour. But the mud got me on the way home.
Some Yogi snaps.
Up early for pastries
and a walk along the coast with miles of deserted beach.
Lunch at the beachhut at Watergate Bay (a little crowded in the surf)
So up to Constantine, where the surf was big and messy (should have gone to Harlyn, but we learn). We wave-jumped for a while, waiting for things to clean up and managed a little boarding.
Surfing lessons at Constantine. H was rather good.
If you look closely, you can see his stance!
I managed to stand once, or twice, but you'll need to take my word for it...
I wasn't popular.
Bodyboarding in the surf
Rock at dusk
Finn finds a sand dune...

A walk with Ewok, a book, a beer and a sunset
Badman monk in the garden
F and F climbed (hiked, then a little scramble climb up Jacobs Ladder) Pen Y Fan, Corn Du, (Pen Y Fan again), and Cribyn. Nice one. They're speedy too.
Out the bathroom window. Not an everyday sight.
Yogi has arrived.
Never quite manage to capture how these fields feel.
Not going to stop me from trying though. Sorry.
Wandering back from a spot of work with coffee at the Bean and Brew via Castle Mound.
...went the front tyre. Now that's a blow-out.
A gusty afternoon brought half a willow tree down on the Thames path. Fortunately F and S were up for some tree clearing. Pretty soon, path cleared.
Some odd reactions from walkers. "Who's paying you to do this then?" was my favourite.
An evening walk with F and E.
Getting 5 smiles and 5 looks to camera? No way.
Flying chocolate helps.
Tournament teams at Grove.
I work with some smart people. In the July heatwave they figured out how to cool the office. Psychologically.
On the record-breaking hottest recorded July day in the UK, Ewok figures out how to chill.
After the cycling last weekend, this weekend we were treated to the battle of Wallingford Castle (both of them, on successive days).
In a few spots, reality leaked around the edges.
It's dangerous. Apparently.
It looks like the Chinook's have arrived.
For boys on days when mum's away (rather than for mum's to take away).
I just help a little.
Walking Ewok bonus-view the other evening.
Fay opened the Howies. It's very very good apparently. Looks like I'm going have to buy another t-shirt...
Fantastic day at Wallingford Festival of Cycling. Big thanks to Mr. G for coming along to support too!
The Fir Tree team did well.
Although they we're a little slower than the Mens Criterium.
Well done Finn!
But the classic bikes were more my pace.Posted by aiddy on Sun 21 June 2015
"More people please" said Victoria. "There's too many flowers".
C R O S S O A K, aiming to please since 2005.
"There's a new bench in Castle Meadows." said Ewok. Thank you Earth Trust.
The Brew and Bean had a birthday today. Fay got the right stick.
"It's been a long day" said Ewok.
An evening wander around Tallinn.
A week with the team in Tallinn. There and pack through Helsinki.
The road from Cholsey
The path from Benson
Not a bad view to spend a couple of hours working in front of. Hanging out in Bellevue, where the cranes have been busy.
Corn in the wheat field?
Ewok is going through a bit of a Victorian phase.
"There's no colours then" he said.
Thank you (bow)
For the eleventh time, it's May in the Garden
Stood in the cow-parsley.
The boys thought granddad was surprisingly good at table tennis.
This is Ewok's "This Way?" face.
I'm close to deciding the tree is dead.
Two tournaments this weekend, both went out to penalties. Tough.
Although he's a little older, he hasn't changed his habits. The long grass is still favourite spot.
In the colourfulness stakes the Fig was lagging the Tulips by quite a lot.
Gardens for Fay's birthday. Great Dixter won.
Not getting tired of this view

Looking down over the garden tonight was a cheeky full moon peaking through the winter clouds. Two exposures, one for the moon, one for the clouds.
Frozen landscape on the first proper snow since the last lot.
Incoming resulted in a near miss.
And an interesting way of getting down the lane.
Place disk in console. Wait while it installs (really). Start game. Get treated to a 3gig download. You can just play games on the old 360 said the eldest. Exactly.
