A return to Winchester

Whilst working in Winchester, I never quite had the chance to visit the cathedral, quite possibly because by the time I finished work, it would either have been shut, or I would have been heading towards the train station, getting the train back home. So here I am, Winchester cathedral, admiring the crazy stained-glass window, that was put back together by locals after Cromwell's forces kind of ruined the original. I love the thought process that must have occurred here, "Shall we try to put back the pieces back roughly how they were?" "No, I think it's best to try very deliberately to make sure that the pieces have almost 0% resemblance to how they were originally. That would definitely be the best option here. Just go totally abstract."

Mainly sailing
P8142678.JPGP8142681.JPGP8142684.JPGToday was a fun day of activities. Well, mainly sailing, courtesy of Uncle Simon. The boys got a little bit wet, as the water was unusually choppy, A****** getting the pleasure of a few waves over the boat and straight in the face! Oooopsie! But it was all fine, as we had change of clothes and had a fine dinner at The Anchor Bleu later on. An interesting pub that has various access 'issues' dependant upon the tide. Tide was out, though, so we were fine. Outside, we met this cute little sausage dog puppy thing (visible in the distance in the last picture) called . . . erm . . . called . . . damn it . . . I said the dog's name about 15 minutes ago and now it's slipped away again . . . began with M . . . five letters. Ah well. It'll come back. [five minutes later] MONTY! That was it. We were introduced to this dog by a group of children but there was no clear indication as to who the owner was. Hmmmm.

Wandering around London
After I finished work today, I felt like I needed some fresh air, a bit of sunlight and some exercise, so got the Tube from Holborn to Marble Arch and walked from there back to Earl's Court. I wandered through Hyde Park, trying to keep to the shade as much as possible. Around the Serpentine, I spotted this weird thing in the water. I've still no idea what it is or what it means. Yes, I know, a quick Google search would probably fill in the blanks of knowledge, but I can't be bothered. Somewhere around Kensington I spotted this amazing cloud / sunlight combo in the . . . I was about to type out, "in the sky" for a moment then. "A cloud / sunlight combo, did you say? How interesting. But where on earth would such a thing occur, goddamn it?!" So, yes . . . but I digress. It seemed like the rays of sunlight poking out from behind the cloud had a strange solidity to them, which I'm not sure if the photo conveys or not. Ah well. It was a lovely 45 minute walk anyway.
