I’ll follow the sun

Today’s guest picture comes from a recent visit to Liverpool by my brother Andrew.  He found it in a colourful mood. After some very grey days, we had a much more colourful day here today.  The sun shone and the wind dropped and it looked liked a good day to go outside. As usual, IContinue reading “I’ll follow the sun”

Spirits and mist lifted

The forecast was quite promising, the main features being no rain and very light winds so I was looking forward to a decent pedal.  The lightContinue reading “Acting my age”
