One step back

Today’s guest picture, forwarded to me by Mike Tinker and taken by his daughter Liz, shows a delightful scene with cormorants at Linlithgow. I was a bit taken aback last night. After feeling that my back was definitely on the mend through the day, I got a bit of shock when I tried to lieContinue reading “One step back”

A mournful day

Today’s guest picture goes to show that you should never judge by appearances. My brother Andrew was offered a choice between a vegan sausage roll and this good looking scone. He naturally chose the scone but found when he became more closely acquainted with it, that it was very old and dry. The vegan sausageContinue reading “A mournful day”

Keeping calm

Today’s guest picture is another from my brother’s visit to Chester and shows a view of the cathedral there. We had yet another calm, cool, dry day today although Mrs Tootlepedal did encounter the briefest of showers while she was archaeologising. She spent pretty well the whole day at the Roman fort at Broomholm, helpingContinue reading “Keeping calm”

Blown off course

Strong winds and occasional showers kept me off my bike again in the morning and between the weather and the holiday, my September mileage is going  to beContinue reading “Blown off course”

Fairly calm after the storm

After our hot and humid day yesterday,Continue reading “Fairly calm after the storm”

Fairly fruitless walk

Today’s guest picture, from my brother’s camera, speaks for itself. There was little or no wind and the thermometer was showing a very stingy 4.5°C when Dropscone, Scott and I set out for a morning pedal to Gair and back after breakfast.   As a result, the start of our journey was shrouded in a clammyContinue reading “Fairly fruitless walk”
