I know I said I wouldn’t post every day, but tonight, sitting in a warm pub in Old Warden, Bedfordshire, home of the world-renowned Shuttleworth collection of vintage aeroplanes which I’ll visit tomorrow, I couldn’t resist this one, of dinner this evening on a wing and a perhaps even a prayer.
I’m preparing to camp tonight, in a car park opposite the entrance to said collection, where this afternoon I found this Cessna, rather than worse for wear. But an ideal and stable base for my first outing with my new Primus stove.
Instant noodles. Worked a treat, and perfect after a fabulous day’s riding from Judy and Julia and Jeremy near Banbury, a rich and warming 60 miles due East into much less of a headwind than I’d expected.
I’m trying post more photos on Google+, and having an Interesting Time so doing. Seem to have got them up, but in a completely different order than on my laptop.
If you’d like to see more, let me know (email, or comment here) and I’ll add you to my Google RTW (Round The World) circle. I think.
Given that I’m posting two days running, I’ll put a poll at the bottom of this post where you can tell me whether you think this is a good idea – while, of course, you don’t have to come here if you don’t want to, however much I write…
But briefly, before I do, a good photo sent on by Sue (thanks Dearest!) of yesterday’s departure from The Mead in Cirencester, with our lovely friends and neighbours making sure I really went, waving flags of Britain, Germany, Russia, Vietnam and India (latter for Sue when she goes a-volunteering.)
So a poll. Do click and give me your honest opinion… (Given the hassle of tonight’s post, have to say that daily is going to drive me mad anyway.)
