Stone Henge
We hired a Fiat and drove out of London. This was the first stop, note the three coffee cups on the roof.

So this holiday, I have driven the old Fiat 500 and the new Fiat 500. So, which one would I have? The old one. The hot version of the new one that I didn't drive. The hire company actually had one of the hot ones, but it had just been rented out. The new one drove well. I'd have one of both.

The Cutty Sark

Dome to the walkway underpass to the other side of the river where there is a matching dome. It is of Victorian times, yes, they had an underpass under the water 100 years ago
What you go to Greenwich to see, the time line thing

You dont see too many Citroen H Vans around, sure, not really what you go to Greenwich to see.

We went to Greenwich. But we were more excited to discover where the battle sequence from Thor was shot. Yes, you can see, the blue sky deserted us, but not for long, it came right out just after I had taken this shot. But, I'd walked up the hill into the park.

On the move again. It is exhausting, but mostly I marvel at the thoughts I had during the planning stage, the anxiety, the doubt, and there you go, it is done. Sometimes, it seemed so hard as we tried to plan it, and there you go, completed successfully.

Say good bye to exhousemates, how long will it be before I see this garden again?

The old

Reflecting what they've done

The modern

They are building 450 new skyscrapers in London. Better be careful or London will look like Melbourne

Margaret Court

Margaret Court is not only deluded, she is really nasty with her delusion. No amount of faded glories, unknown to most people now, can make up for her level of ignorance. How many conclusions on subjects, she clearly knows nothing about, can she come to? Yes, of course, she, a seventy four year old cis woman, knows exactly what it feels like to be a trans sixteen year old kid, of course she does. Why does she feel the authority to comment?

We should all really feel sorry for her, as she seems to have no idea what a fool she is making of herself. Devils, witches, burning cauldrons of hell, if it weren't for the vindictiveness of her attacks, it would be laughable. She is saying some really nasty shit, nothing that would become a person if they truly were a champion.

But, you know, I don't want to give her any publicity, because I assume she is only doing it to raise money for her church, and I don't want to even inadvertently help her cause.

Sending a Message?

Buddy is pissing on my car while I'm away. He never pisses on my car when I am at home. Do you think he is trying to send a message?

Good bye to lovely Margate

Happy faces Dreamland

We went to the opening of Dreamland, a historical amusement park, which just happened to be on the same day we were there

Low tide

We went antiquing in an amazing shop (when I remember the name I'll add it) just full of stuff

Margate is lovely. We, of course, ate at the Greedy Cow

Getting a tan in Margate

We went to Margate for a bit of sun and sea

Bubbles in the air
