Just to prove I am going out for my prescribed/allowed one hour of continuous exercise, here’s the highlights from my walk up and down Car Dyke, Waterbeach’s third biggest tourist attraction. After the Sun and my parents’ house . This morning’s highlights come from Durham, for no good reason whatsoever. Bit surprising to see only… Continue reading DURHAM DAWDLINGS
” Hull?! ” say 99% of you (49.5 people). “I thought you were doing the less obvious places” says Dave. A great city, a great pub destination, and one of the most photogenic places on earth. To cap it all, no risk of bumping into Team BRAPA either, they’ve boycotted Hull Tigers home matches due… Continue reading A HULL OF A TIME (2015/16/17/18/19)
“I’d rather be visiting a Hungry Horse in Sandy and blogging about it than revisiting all these old posts” I told BRAPA yesterday, comparing the blog view fall-off in those crucial markets of Russia and Samoa. Sadly, those old pictures are all I’ve got to work on, so here’s photos. NB Some of us are… Continue reading EDINBURGH A YEAR ON
Interesting to look through the 4 odd years of the blog and see how the photography gets more, er, surreptitious. Clearly following BRAPA’s lead, I reckon.

Very much JamieOliverLand, right on the… Continue reading NEWPORTS – FROM ESSEX TO PEMBROKESHIRE VIA SALOP
My readers are a cantankerous bunch, always up for a pointless argument. “Is Newport Gwent even the best pubby Newport ?” they ask. Hmmm. Let’s see the competing claims, starting with; Newport (Isle of Wight) A County town, but then so is Bedford, which also seems to have a bus station as its redeeming feature.… Continue reading WHICH IS THE BEST NEWPORT ?
According to my blog I’ve made six trips over the Severn to Newport in four years, which practically qualifies me for a Welsh passport. You may assume I come here for the scary underpass with its cheery street art, but in truth it’s accommodation bargains at the Ibis off the M4, the Spoons or the… Continue reading MAKING A DENT IN NEWPORT (GWENT)
There’s 3 criteria for selecting these “highlights” posts. 1) You ask for them. 2) The photos make me laugh. 3) The place lacks an “a” as I can’t use the “a” on my laptop and writing these posts on the mobile is a sod. No-one asked for Cleethorpes, so here it is. Shame you can’t… Continue reading SINGLET TO CLEETHORPES, PLEASE
