Another glorious Friday in paradise. I kid you not. Blue skies and brief wisps of white clouds.
Full English breakfast 🙂
Then out on the road heading south. Zoom. Zoom. The Lake District came and went. I barely remember Liverpool. And then it came time to fill up. 200km done. A bit less left to go.
TLC for the bike.
Green tea for me.
And updates to the blog. I had been remiss these past two days. Though my notes were up-to-date.
Back on the road and the traffic is beginning to build. Though not as much as traffic heading north. Huge traffic jam.
And seemed to be lots of bikes heading north.
Ran on till the Derby services.
Ate a pasty.
Found a place to stay.
In Barrow stopped by the old house. Work is underway……
Nice view over the river and meadows now the garage and stables are gone.
Then into Loughborough. And the hotel.
Took a stroll. The old town is still recognisable. And ‘The Organ Grinder‘ is a welcome addition.
Back at the hotel I had supper, and an excellent chat with “Trucker Tim” and his wife.
Then catch the end of an old movie.
Need my energy for tomorrow’s game 🙂
