Arrsers self taken photo collection.

20200917_065315_copy_2016x1512.jpg


On the way to the Isle of Wight 06:30 hrs, last week.
 
Sea bird apocalypse. I could find no carcasses, just lots of feathers.

Covid enforced visitor less, and the dock area being redeveloped, leaves her a bit sad and lonely to me. And to cap it all the world tilted sideways during the photo. HMCS Haida.

Wor Lass had an ultra marathon cancelled by the council, due to covid; a small ultra, on-line registration, with a starting window to enable a staggered start and social distancing; more like a lonely fell race than the London marathon. Nothing indoors, all outdoors. Yet pubs are open. Makes no sense to me.

So she decided to run it today by herself. I was transport and halfway point aid station (refill her water bottles/give her a pasty).

It's 32 miles from Penarth to Ogmore-on-Sea following the South Wales coastal path; quite a pretty route, even if it does take you through Barry Island.

The end at Ogmore:

Saw this at the 18 mile point. I can't remember the name of the place so can't google what it is:

I do like the Crusader cooker; spot on for coffee and noodles (for me):

Wales also, perchance...?

What were you expecting? Wales is "governed" by Labour; the party of socialism, that well-known authoritarian dogma of ineptitude and lack of common sense and logic.

Thanks.

It looked like something out of a Mad Max film.

I tried to get close to it, but the sand was more like mud and it got deeper the nearer I approached, so didn't.
Bristol Channel, mate. Same on this side. We don't call it "Burnham-on-Mud" for nothing!

By the by, as I recall, The Scum used a photo of that thing as the basis for an April Fool headline about the arrival of aliens once.

Which bridge? The Severn Bridge?

I live in Sedbury, which is in England and we don't have to cross either of the Severn bridges to get into Wales.

We're about 500 meters away from the Welsh border; it's been a bit of a pain to be honest with different rules here, and then different rules just 500 meters away.

One of the guys who works for me is doing a socially-distanced club Iron Man this weekend (I think it was today) The one they were down for was cancelled so they are doing their own. Staggered starts with a safety boat on the swim, but for most of the rest of it they won't see anyone except the people manning the various stations. For me, that shows a particular strength of character and dedication. A whole Iron Man, on your tod. I am impressed!

Love the use of chopsticks in the field btw.
