Pen Y Fan

Pen Y Fan Hike

F and F climbed (hiked, then a little scramble climb up Jacobs Ladder) Pen Y Fan, Corn Du, (Pen Y Fan again), and Cribyn. Nice one. They’re speedy too.

Some more on Flickr and some previous trips.

Capturing Wheat

Wheat field

Never quite manage to capture how these fields feel.

Not going to stop me from trying though. Sorry.


Wallingford from Castle mound

Wandering back from a spot of work with coffee at the Bean and Brew via Castle Mound.

Clearing the Thames Path

Footpath clearing

A gusty afternoon brought half a willow tree down on the Thames path. Fortunately F and S were up for some tree clearing. Pretty soon, path cleared.

Some odd reactions from walkers. “Who’s paying you to do this then?” was my favourite.

Smart People

I work with some smart people. In the July heatwave they figured out how to cool the office. Psychologically.
