Used P20

Loving the pre dawn.   But the clouds look a touch angry.
IMG_6030   IMG_6032
And how right I was going to be.   Breakfast by the pool.

Rare picture of a person.   The hills behind the airport.

That orange Palm tree again   Another tree
IMG_6039   IMG_6043
Balcony, post rain.   Knees.
IMG_6041   IMG_6045
All gone rather grey.   Another cloud burst.
Rather too wet to be at my usual table.    


Should have used WD40

Rain in the morning


IMG_5998   IMG_6001
Early morning deliveries.   Early morning command central.
IMG_6003   IMG_6006
Pre sun up angry clouds.   Sun up over the crane.
IMG_6008   IMG_6009
Quality of light.   A touch on orange on the Palm tree.
IMG_6011   IMG_6013
Toast, cereal and rain outside.   Cloud bursting #01.
IMG_6014   IMG_6016
Cloud bursting #02.   It is a port after all. Rain stopped.
IMG_6017   IMG_6018
Local paper shop   The main drag
IMG_6019   IMG_6021
And back again   Sun out
IMG_6022   IMG_6023
Feet out   Saving the suns’ good rays


A slight tan in the afternoon

With rain

Angry looking skies this morning.   So had a late breakfast

Missing the PremierInn all you can eat fry up.   On the way to the paper shop.

Trees maketh the picture   Lunch, cheese and onion in Spain, who knew?

Decided to chance it by the pool.   One of those is my room.
IMG_5996   IMG_5997
A touch of setting sun.   And people.


Wind and impaired bandwidth

Bristol wet


IMG_5954   IMG_5959
On the apron at Bristol, very welcoming.   The end of Britain and the start of the sea.
IMG_5961   IMG_5964
Food for the mind.   And food for the rest of the body.
IMG_5963   IMG_5967
France.   Breakfasting in an A319.
IMG_5975   IMG_5979
Palma Bay in the distance, not quite the look I was hoping for.   PMI, foul weather gear all round.
IMG_5980   IMG_5981
17:00 local and the weather is on the mend. View from the room.   However not sure if I’ll chance it next to the pool?


Palma wet on arrival

Indian Summer – Last Day

22/09/2012 Leave a comment
Cold, dry and still (as in Bedwas General Store). Extra air in the tyres ready for #PMI912. On the bus to Newport. Another Tiny Rebel day but first a visit to the Tom Toya Lewis (Wetherspoons).



You come all the way to Newport and you get Caerphilly ales. Not that this is a problem, at all!

The bar opens at 09:00 and I'm hard at it at 09:01. However request in to serve from 08:00 as per Caerphilly.


Now this is good but I should really be at the cheese festival at Cardiff Castle.

And this a rather good smokey ale.

Happy end of Indian Summer days.
