As we draw closer to the end of the year, I find I am still playing catchup, with my phone pictures. So I shall post a few random shots of my ┬ábikes, and Dutch Skutsje style barge, and some shots of the seasonal weather…

Wow I am so far behind with all my phone pictures, I have just been so busy, what with buying the Barge, visiting the US, and all the other stuff in my life. But now I should be able to get back on track….

Here is a picture of the Rudder on my Barge, and the Dutch(Frisian) flag that I was gifted by the previous owners…

So I am in the midst of buying myself an old Dutch barge to live on, a little smaller than your average house, but it has all the makings of a fun abode.

Wow! have I really posted nothing since June.

Well to be fair I have been a tad busy, but that in itself is no real excuse, but I shall endeavour to get back on track, just in case a few people are still watching this blog from time to time…

I picked up this Norton Commando a couple of weeks ago, a long term shed dweller, it shows the neglect it has suffered. A little tatty around the edges, broken clocks, rusty in places, and some wrong parts fitted. Just like you would expect from a bike left over from the seventies.
