What SUP Finn

SUP finn

We borrowed a SUP from G&J. Finn excelled. I demonstrated that I have no sense of balance. I guess that's why I prefer sports where you sit down...

Waiting for train adverts

Waiting for the train adverts

I missed the train. Andy kept me company. It was a long wait.

Watching Trains

Waiting for the train

Fay gave me a lift this morning so I was nice and early for the 0727. I got to sit in the waiting room, drinking a coffee from Leslie, admiring the muriel that, in six years of commuting from here, I'd not noticed before. In me defence, I think this is only the third time I've sat in the waiting room.

August Sunset

Showery day ending with a gleam.

Bob half done

Bob is half done

Harvest this year has been a race between the farmers and the wetness. The big field at the bottom is done (just) but there's still half the wheat in the bigish field at the top.

Line of Locks

A collection of bike locks

Locks by the bike racks. Saves carrying your own.

The helpful sign reads:

> Cycles may be left subject to the Conditions and Regulations in the Boards publications and notices

Which I think means 'you can leave your bike here, but don't complain to us if it's not here when you return' (ish).

Golden Ticket

Golden ticket

It looks like the super-sized pack of revision cards I got H paid off.

I obviously take all the credit.

RAF Benson Family Day Flying

Today was RAF Benson's family day, so we got a little treat of some flying acrobatics. Not quite up to the standards of 2015 but fun to watch.

Hanging out in Split



The ferry times don't really gel with the flight times, so we get to hang out in Split.

Vis, by ferry, again again

We're getting into the routine.

WFP (working from the Pool)

If you do need to catch up on something, this isn't a bad place to do it from.


Milky Way Pool

Go somewhere dark. The Milky Way is out there.
