No traffic jams for cyclists on Brighton train station. Its systematic and cyclistically focussed, its Queuing! Hoorah, I do love a good queue. Unfortunately I’d come-over all pedestrian so wasn’t eligible for participation. Pooeeeey

Two slim elderly gentleman rest their walking sticks as they wait to cross the road in downtown London. Flat caps keep their heads warm, cardigans sensibly cover their torsos in the cool spring sunshine. The modern office block in the background reflects the sun and current fashion.

Yesterday we went for a short ‘hike’.
Actually it was more of a ‘stroll’ along Boulder River. Once we arrived at the waterfalls it was more of a ‘scramble’. Scrambling over rocks, through the river along and up fallen tree-trunks. I got to hug a tree or two, mainly through fear of falling into the water below as we crossed the river!

“… I’m not interested in dating…”
“…so you use a VPN from home?…”
“…we can catch a boat from Vladivostoc…”
The mosquitos by the lake were numerous. I took way too many photographs. This is my favourite:
