We went to Whitby last week - lovely. I made a timelapse video with my phone
(It looks better if you choose the HD option and full screen):

Obligatory photos:

We drove to Nottingham to see Les and Chris. It was lovely to see them both.

They took us to Newark on Trent - a lovely town! We lunched at the Prince Rupert - good food and like a rabbit warren inside. We'll definitely have to visit Newark again.

Home again via the M1 and M25 to bad news about Saints v Liverpool. Oh well...

We had an unexpected and fun walk today with Chris and Nigel, who drove us to Silchester, where we parked at St Mary the Virgin church, inside the walls of the Roman town. The weather was mixed, wet at times, very windy, but lots of sunny spells too. The ground was totally saturated, I don't envy those poor folk in Somerset and all the other places which have flooded.

At one point, Chris stepped into a puddle and it proved to be quite deep. There was a threat of the water going over the top of her boot. I couldn't help laughing. As I was apologising for my lack of compassion, I slipped and fell sideways in the mud. Talk about devine retribution. I always knew Chris had friends in high places...

We lunched at the Plough in Little London, and covered about ten miles in total.

Tina and I went for a lovely walk today with Dorothy and Tim. The sun was shining, and it was quite warm when striding along. We were to the west of Winchester, near King's Somborne and Horsebridge. I actually took some photos:

                                                                 

which was nice ;)

Junk Head

A Japanese artist spent four years of his spare time making the animated film Junk Head 1, and it's stunning. Take a look for yourself...

Bill Gekas draws inspiration from classical paintings by Rembrandt, Raphael and Velazquez, and photographs his five year old daughter accordingly. These are wonderful images (click the picture to go to his gallery):

Full screen this - you won't be disappointed.

2013 in a nutshell:

The labels should read: Margaret Thatcher, Nelson Mandela, Beyoncé Knowles and Catherine, Duchess of somewhere or other.

Listen to this bike - it sounds amazing.
