Sep 18, 2018 - An oriental haven

We appear to be cursed. The first storm of the season, Storm Helene, hit the west coast of Ireland last night and was sweeping up and across the northern parts of England today. While the Cotswolds was not in its direct path, we were gifted with high winds of around 35-40 kmh, with gusts of up to 60 kmh. Cycling under those conditions just sounded too much; not only would it be really hard work, but a sudden gust of wind could easily blow us into the path of a passing car. So instead we decided to visit the Batsford Arboretum about 2 km...

Sep 17, 2018 - Up hill and down dale

Today was our first riding day and we were greeted with a pleasant, partially cloudy day with a slight breeze. Good cycling weather!

This is sheep country, although the odd horse or...

There was a marvellous stall by the Midlands Birds of Prey Rescue, which had on display several magnificent...

Oct 18, 2015 - Chipping Campden to Moreton in Marsh

Today's hike took us from Chipping Campden to Moreton in Marsh for a total of 7 3/4 miles. The weather was generally cloudy with moisture but there were bits of clear sky and sun that could get you quite toasty. You didn't know what to do--put on the rain pants and cover the backpack or not. I put it off as long as a could with the result that the lower third of my pants were more than damp. I looked quite a sight with my pink/purple rain jacket, black rain hat, and blue rain pants on! No problem finding me in those! Here's a little...
