Happy Cow

I met a really friendly cow while I was out today near reading! Here he is munching on some straw and sinking into the bog. I walked around a slightly epic 25 mile loop north of Reading which meant I didn’t get back to Henley until after dark. However, that meant I could test out […]

Brown Cheese With Jam

I was in Oslo again this week which is usually a cause for celebration as it’s the only place I know of where you can sample my favourite caramelised cheese by-product: brown cheese! Normally I have a few slices on bread like a regular cheese. This time however I was chatting to a colleague about […]

Windsor Castle

I originally visited Windsor castle years ago when I first moved to this area. However I forgot to blog about it. One of the benefits of being a local resident is that you get in for free! A good thing too, as I don’t remember it being that good last time. One of the problems […]

First Adventure of the Year

2015, time to go adventuring again! Today started off pleasant so I got the train to Marlow and wandered up towards West Wycombe in roughly the reverse of a route I did last year. Here’s a little wood near Marlow. The morning at least, was nice and sunny. Bin cat is not amused. Once I […]

On The Beach

I went for a walk down to the seafront in Hastings after lunch today. The late afternoon sun was beautiful, if rather cold. Here’s one of the local fishing boats, just recently returned from a day out working. I actually saw some fishermen carrying their catch off another boat later. There’s no harbour at Hastings […]

Flowering

I took some photos of things growing in my mum’s greenhouse while I was waiting for Christmas dinner. Here’s a pretty pink flower! This one is is a stumpy spiky cactus. He looks quite happy sitting there.

Solstice

It’s the shortest day today. As a sort of celebration I went for a wander in Maidenhead Thicket this afternoon. The trees looked so bare and the overcast clouds were very gloomy. Never mind: summer soon! Also only four days until Christmas.

Trucktraintor

Is it a truck?! Perhaps a TRAIN or some kind of tractor?! I rather like it, whatever it is.

Beeches Way

In what’s become something of a winter tradition I walked along the Beeches Way last Saturday. It’s roughly 18 miles long which is a good distance for the available daylight in December. Although you do need to get up early. It started off in this eerie fog on Cookham Moor but that soon disappeared and […]

London Bridges

I was in London last weekend and took some photos along the Thames near Chelsea. This one is the Albert Bridge. And this one I think the Chelsea Bridge. And a really pretty sunset later on.
