Where my feet have been – Karting Track

One place that’s always interesting to go to is the karting track, even if it’s just to watch. You see all the other driving around like lunatics trying to outrace each other and getting into all kinds of scrapes.

It’s good fun!

This time I wasn’t taking part, I was merely watching….

The marshals earned their pay on this one – the’re wasn’t a dull lap in sight!

People were flying all over the place

But at some point the race has to end – then I was watching my son and few others going out to have go… more sedate but always a good bit of fun!

That’s where my feet were this weekend! Where were yours?

Where my feet have been – My Home Town

Just recently I had the lucky chance to visit the town where I grew up. It’s the one thing I have in common with Tim Peake as we grew up in the same part of the world – apparently.

One of the things I love about going back to my home town is being near the sea and the shores that are still so familiar to me.

The chance to enjoy this with a little crabbing is too good to pass up and it means a bit of quiet time with just the waves and fortunately a bit of sun.

This pontoon is great for getting much further out into the sea – some of the crabs were pretty big and most of them wanted a bite of stinky bacon.

I miss the sea…

Where my feet have been – A Radio Telescope Array

Having just moved to another work building (which is even more in the sticks) I took my usual walk about and I have to warn you now that the lifespan of my brain might be a bit reduced because I discovered that we’re surrounded by radio telescopes. In every direction!

For some reason I find these strangely fascinating and have taken just a few pics to share:

Where my feet have been – A Quiet Place

I love finding new places, near work there is a quiet little place where there are lots of young trees and a few benches. This is going to be a great place to get some peace in a lunch break.

Yes… my shoes are a bit smarter than my usual trainers.

It will be nice to see this place in Spring, I could spend a long time here enjoying the peace and quiet.

Where My feet have been – Roller Skating

20160626_134816

This weekend was a busy, fun and painful weekend. On Sunday I had the joy of going roller skating for the second time ever in my life. Imagine an over sized lump of a guy trying to get around the rink on skates and you’re about there.

I did pretty well as it turns out, but I fell flat on my back avoiding someone and that was it. I had had enough! It’s pretty painful and it’s a hard floor. I had fun and will do it again – but I need to remember my limits! 😀

What did you guys get up to over the weekend?

Where my feet have been -A Lake with a duck

I want to stress now – this is NOT totday! Today it is hissing down with rain. I like the rain, but I wouldn’t sit on the grass in the rain! 😀

Last week I sat under a Willow by the lake near work and was just quiet for a few minutes. A white duck was doing it’s thing finding something to eat and qucking away while I looked at the umbrella that was the willow covering myself and the ground beneath. I wish I could have sat here all day!

Where my feet have been – The Tree Stump

wp-1463268516242.jpeg

I love trees, they have so much history around them, especially something like an old Oak or Horse Chestnut. This is the stump of a Horse Chestnut, cut down for some reason or other. I loved looking at the age lines, asn it looks like at some point a fire has been lit near it.

It doesn’t look that old (as such) but it was a great tree and this post is also a bit in honour of that tree and all it ever sawy happen around it.
