Recovering from a cold.

I rode Paddy Wagon with MapMyRide+! Distance: 38.16km, time: 01:33:12, pace: 2:27min/km, speed: 24.57km/h. The going was good but it seems to have brought my cold back. It’s odd because I felt fine during, but after, all achey. It’s … Continue reading

This could be a nice campsite.

7°C, rain. Pitched near Betwys-y-coed on the banks of the R. Conwy. Can’t really tell how good this place is because I arrived in the dark. Tonight’s rain should be the last of it this weekend.

Something in the water is watching.

12°C, sun and light rain. Something in this pond is watching. There were two ripples from their dive for cover as I approached. Yesterday there was a glassy eye, a frog I think. Actually, two. That’s great for such a … Continue reading

I’m in.

6°C, after a snowy start, the next was vigorous. A chance to try something seen at my old house, an igloo. The snow wasn’t really suitable, it refused to compact densely. The roof fell in before this photo. Anyway, the … Continue reading

7°C, sun with few showers. I get the keys tomorrow. Maybe, I should blog about its modernisation here. The long wait is over, now the hard work begins.
