Out and About Again

Yesterday I was off out in my trusty van again. The weather on Tuesday had been fantastic and I was really hoping for the same again. Unfortunately it was not to be, as I headed out at 7.30 it was drizzling.

It was going to be a longer day as I was heading over to the south west coast, and I wanted to get a head start going north around the M25. As always it was a complete car park and the rain and spray were not helping the situation at all. Traffic info on the radio was telling me of breakdowns, accidents and closures but luckily my satnav was on top of the situation and diverted me round.

By the time I arrived at my destination the rain had stopped. It was still decidedly chilly but with warm gear and gloves on I had a lot of happy riders putting the bikes through their paces.

Then it was time for a late lunch and I couldn't resist the draw of the sea. A slight diversion had me parked up in the sunshine! and enjoying my sandwiches. The wind was still really brisk but the view was excellent.

Then it was time for the return journey. Motorway closures again! but with a tricky diversion through the villages I was back on track again and home by 8.30. A long drive but the lovely view was definitely worth it.

The Sun Shone

I have been out and about today in the South East and what a glorious day it was. Amazingly even the M25 was kind to me this morning and as I drove over the QE2 bridge at Dartford the view up the Thames towards the City was superb.

Further out the Kent countryside was bathed in brilliant sunshine - I'm not saying it was warm because there was a definite chill to the wind - but safely ensconced in the warmth of the Batribike van it was strange to hear the radio reports of snow in some parts of the UK.

The tree colours looked spectacular as I came over the motorway hill the whole scene was full of reds, browns and yellows. It seems that all the best scenes that you really want to take a picture of are always when you have nowhere to stop!

I just managed one snap of some trees when I stopped. I am out and about again tomorrow so I am hoping that it is another gorgeous day.
