Cancer research winter run 2019

My third time in this race, previous years being 2016 and 2017.

Didn’t get a personal best, but given much of my preparation for the race consisted of eating and sitting still, I don’t think I did go badly at 53.45

Same time next year.

Islands on the air 2018

I’m up at the Secret Nuclear Bunker this appeals for the islands on the air radio contest.

I’d hoped to see the Luna eclipse too but the weather wasn’t playing along. The storms passed us by, but the clouds were set for the night.

This is the current view, as we bask in the sun.

Amsterdam

Just off the train from St Pancras. First sight from the station was this wonderful pile of bikes.

Later that evening, sitting by the wheel house of the boat.

25/12

A rather different Christmas this year for me. Rather than wake up in my own bed in my own house as I have for many years, I upped and left for some winter sun on the Costa Blanca.

Having been here for several days so far, I’ve been up the hills (waking paths seem almost non existent, and roads don’t quite meet up), visited Valencia and Alecante. Public transport is very good and reasonably priced. A roundtrip to Valencia taking about 4 hours costing less than 30 euros.

Christmas morning was spent on the beach.
