UK 2016

In 2016 my sister got married, so we headed over to the UK and spent a month there. Ginger had a lot of work meetings, and we fitted in a small amount of hiking, not forgetting the wedding of course!

Curse tablets, bracelets, and culverts – a visit to the Roman Baths at Bath. Roman Curse Tablets – These sound like a fantastic idea. I’m thinking that just for starters I should write some for Microsoft and Facebook. One-minute read, 3 pictures

Rocks can fall at any time.

Cheddar Gorge (no climbers) – It’s fairly rugged and pointy looking. It’s a shame about the road running right through the middle though.

Silica, Weston super Mare – A couple more views of Silica, Weston-super-Mare’s giant sperm mouldy carrot statement public art piece. I’m all in favor of public art and unusual, even challenging architecture/art. This doesn’t do it for me. 2 pictures

WTF, Bus Shelter or Mouldy Carrot? – I have no idea. Officially, it’s a bus shelter and is called Silica – though comments in the local press have called it a mouldy carrot.
