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.

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.

Telegraph Pole

Really pretty sunset near my house this evening. Fellow admirers of the humble telegraph pole may appreciate this website.

Burial Chamber

Yesterday I was out exploring near Marlborough and stumbled across this ancient burial chamber just as it was getting dark. With the moon out already it was super creepy. Apparently this is the “Devil’s Den” and if I had been foolish enough to pour water into the hollows in the capstone and demon would have […]

Precarious Squirrel

Everyone knows squirrels are stupid but this one seems extra doof: he has climbed up to the top of this tree (I’m on the third floor) and is swaying around in the wind!
