Was planning to do the north Devon coast but the forecast looked a bit grim so we decided to head south to the Dorset coast instead.
Did some epic rainstorm dodging and had a very pleasant 200 mile trip.

The end of Portland BIll - glad I wasn't out in a small boat, really choppy!

OH, and then into Weymouth

This was after we'd done the Yeovil - Crewkerne route down to Bridport and West bay where dozens of bikes were parked up.

Great day out :thumbup: :thumbup: :D

Preached at last service as lay person in what is now my "old" Church. Packed more stuff at home. Moved lots of stuff into new house. More stuff tomorrow to be followed by a photo....

Completed the stay at home Glastonbury experience. Watched David Bowie on the iPlayer last night, drank 12 cans of Weston's Scrumpy and then passed out. Woke up this morning and took a crap off a stepladder into the toilet I hadn't flushed all weekend and then set fire to my tent in the garden.

You may laugh. My wife wasn't when she had to clean the bog while I nursed a hangover though.

Came off a 12hr night shift, slept for a few hours, then I filled another 1/2 of one the 4 Gabions with stone that I'm using for a wildlife pond/garden feature. This is like doing a 3D jigsaw puzzle with no picture and all the bits are wonky. I then used lacing wire to close the Gabion cage lids down which was definitely a learning experience, after nearly poking my eye out and gouging my forehead I'll use eye protection next time and some stout gloves to save my delicate office hands. 1 down, 3 to go.

Right now! Watching my house being emptied of all goods. The final bits will go tomorrow... The place looks so big now with no furniture.

Removed 12 dodgy bearings.

Which were all seized on a shaft, and carrying 60 year old bakelite rollers. Everything survived intact, and no one is more surprised than me..

My boy turns 12 today, so we're off out on MTB soon. He said he wanted muffins for his birthday breakfast and rules in this house are, on your birthday you get anything you want.
So I was up at 6 to make sure they were baked and cooled in time
