An unusual Rainbow

This evening (approx 18:30) we saw this unusual rainbow – a short rainbow directly above us. The rainbow occurred within a busy airline flight path. It wasn’t raining at the time.

A Week in Menorca

This week we headed out to Menorca where we stayed at the Victoria Playa Hotel in the sleepy resort of Sant Tomàs. 

Highlights included a trek to the Cova des Coloms – a large cavern about 24 meters high and 100 meters deep which was reached by a lovely (although poorly signposted) trail inland from Playa Binigaus.

A visit to Cambridge

This weekend I made a quick visit to Cambridge to attend a friend’s 40th birthday party. On my way back to the railway station I walked across Parkers Piece and past “Reality Checkpoint” which brought back many fond memories of growing up in Cambridge.

A visit to Kelsey Park

Today we took the tram down to Beckenham to visit Kelsey Park. This is a lovely public park with several interlinked lakes and a really good play area. The lakes are home to several types of ducks and geese as well as Swans and Herons.

A visit to Caterham

Today we visited Caterham on the Hill where we ate at the Fleetingbrook Pub.

Steam Train @ Bromley South

Today we headed down to Bromley South to see a beautiful steam train visit the station. It’s really something to see steam trains operating on mainline railways in London, especially during the working week. The formation did have a diesel tagged on the back just in case the steam engine broke down. We found out about the itenary from the UK Steam info website. Elias loved the steam and the noise of the train as it pulled away from the station.
