Forest of Dean weekend


Ferry Crossing

River Wye







The Forest of Dean was the venue for our first cycle club meeting this year. Nineteen cyclists were there enjoying the rides, and boy were we lucky with the weather, hardly a drop of the wet stuff. The days before had been incredibly wet, so wet in fact that the ferry in the pictures was unable to run due to the river being in spate. I won't tell you how my wife described us for being so lucky, she just can't believe it.

We stayed in the forest area for Friday and Saturday night so managed to get good rides done for both Saturday and Sunday.

Have a look at the link as the Forest is a magical place with a lot of history. Its only 50 miles from Cardiff and well worth a visit.

RIng any bells?

Posted by Picasa
This was in the paper the other day and made me think back to the late 60's and early 70's and what we like then.
I posted this using Picasa so I will be interested to see if the red cross in a box has gone.

Snowdrops and green shoots of Spring

They only last for a while, but when they come, they are so welcome.

A Hampshire chalk stream

This is the river Test at Whitchurch in Hampshire, taken on a recent visit to my daughter.
The clarity of the water is due to it being filtered by the chalk and probably because of this, the Test is one of the finest trout rivers in the UK. We saw plenty of fish on the day we were there.
