Lovely to spot a crossbill - it's a bird I've never seen. On my ride this morning I did see ten hares and passed what I think was a sedge warbler singing its heart out on a reed by the side of the road.

Trying some of this rabbit food, had a ploughman's and found it bearable occasionally.
Don't get on with Hellman's light mayo it's vile.

It's a bit of a culture shock not having the usual fayre.
Rode to pub and left the car at home.
Had a pint instead of 3 or 4 and didn't need Doris to drive home.

Doris's office has a new George foreman and an air frier, binned the deep fat frier.

Oh and we have a fruit bowl and a set of scales.

Sure part of the snacks are comfort eating.

Views from my bike ride earlier this week, which incidentally was my longest ever day ride, 70 miles, including 6,000 feet of ascent.

Bit of drizzle here rode a little before tea to the latest diet delight, passable this evening as a one off

Must be the west shore of Coniston. Such a lovely part of the Lakes. I sometimes pop up there to Kelly Hall Tarn to watch the sunrise.

If you’d been cycling on the Northumberland Coast yesterday you may have come across Harrison Ford on his bike. He is currently filming an Indiana Jones movie. Just outside Bamburgh is a temporary mini film studio. Must be 20 huge lorries and a massive marquee.

Great photo Colin!

My ride to took me to the Furness coast and northern shore of Morecambe Bay, over Kirby Moor to Bouth, through the Rusland Valley and Dale Park to Esthwaite, a circuit of the lake, and then on to Grizedale. The photo of the Old Man and Dow Crag was taken from lanes to the south of Lowick Bridge.
