Better get started. And bring a boat.



I love ducks, nice pics.

Some photos I took on the Riverside Walk with Mum last week.
I'm sure the greenery has advanced even further since then.

We're having a scorcher of an April! It was supposed to rain all this week, but we've not seen it during the day. We're even having a BBQ on Saturday... will take pics of that if it comes off.

Here is the eponymous river - the River Thame.

Poor beleagured thing that it is, diverted from its flood plain, hemmed in by new housing, littered by louts. Still, the walk allows people to enjoy what little free flow it still has. Even if (for safety) it's been made nigh on impossible to get to. Not like my childhood, running wild alongside it - over it on tyre swings, dangling feet in ot from a cow-bridge, taking home sticklebacks from it with sunburnt shoulders...

And here is a lovely ground cover, which frothed like water around the trees in this clearing. No idea what it is, never seen it before.

Oh I forgot I filmed this!
This is from the bus I got home from MK the other weekend.
We come into Aylesbury via Bierton, which is where I took pictures earlier in this thread.
It's a bouncy bus, and I only filmed on a whim, so that quality of the filming will not win me any prizes.

But for anyone interested, you can see two of the churches, the Red Lion pub and catch a glimpse of the Eagle not-pub. I had to stop filming because my stop was coming up fast and I had all my belongings to gather together.

Looks like parking is at a premium.

Bruce - yes.
As with many villages spread out along a main road. The houses are too old for cars to have been thought of, and land is at too much of a premium for people to have room behind their houses.

A couple of pics to show how Spring has progressed.
Pretty much Summer now.

Same walk as previously.

Coming out of the walk, I was greeted by the sound of a big dog barking.
You know the heavy, deep, almost subsonic ones?
And arcing merrily over the top was a hoarse woman's voice, "Shaaadddup yer barking!"
Lovely, I thought, you can tell I'm on Quarrendon.

Quarrendon is where we lived just after I was born. We moved to the house I am sitting in now when I was a couple of months old. It isn't the worst of the council estates, it's just not the best.

Recognise anyone?
I think this probably reflects the date the estate was built, because it's never been called anything else as long as I know.

This is what is known as an estate pub.
Very different in appearance to the other pubs I have taken pictures of.
Different in feel too. Obviously their core drinkers are people living in the immediate vicinity. They seem to attract more trouble too - perhaps because people are living together, socialising together, getting drunk with neighbours? I might be being unfair - I'm going on reputation rather than hard facts. I've never been in the Kennedy.

Walking home along the Bicester Road I saw something to make LJ's blood run cold... There used to be a whole line of car salesrooms, but they seem to have been hit by the current economic climate. One closed and one closing down.

Still - one obviously open. I've zoomed in so you can check our second hand car prices.

Oh! I wish my camera was working. I went for a walk in the woods today. Oh but the bluebells looked beautiful; carpeting the woodland floor, dappled by sun light. Lovely.

Gorgeous pics Chez very lovely
