Bullseye

Today’s guest picture comes from South African exile Tom. He wasn’t able to visit Langholm for the Common Riding this year so went for a walk at home yesterday instead. Like the early risers in Langholm, he enjoyed a fine sunrise. After yesterday’s untypical heat, we were back to more normal summer temperatures today withContinue reading “Bullseye”

An unusual occurrence in the scone department

Today’s guest picture is another from Venetia’s visit to The Newt.  They have made good use of an old tree trunk there, though I don’t think that anyone has cycled far on the bike in the picture. Owing to being a bit dozy when I wrote last night’s post, I didn’t notice that my cameraContinue reading “An unusual occurrence in the scone department”

More going round in circles

Today’s guest picture comes from my friend and former colleague, Marjorie.  She came upon these stunning fungi on a walk a few days ago. It was a dry but grey morning and the forecast was not too bad for the rest of the day so my mind turned to cycling. Before I set off, IContinue reading “More going round in circles”

We had a rare outbreak of summer today with plenty of sunshine and a cooling breeze from theContinue reading “Taking my time”

Feeling better

Today’s guest picture is one from my brother’s archive.  He visited Roche Abbey in August and enjoyed this neat little bridge. I woke up feeling a great deal better than yesterday but with a few aches and pains still in residence.  It seemed like case for Dr Velo and so after the regulation amount ofContinue reading “Feeling better”

Very long

Today’s guest picture comes from ex-Langholm Archive data miner, Ken who is now living on the wrong side of the country.  He sent me this picture of Monkseaton Senior School, a place where the children obviously get a fully rounded education. Spoiler alert: If you don’t care for big lorries and birds, look away now. Continue reading “Very long”
