It is a place where people have been known to lose their heads
Where bicycles are very important. (Although you actually see more of them being ridden in London).
Where the building that should be the opera house is actually the stock exchange
Where they have taken the Boris Bicycle concept several stages further...?
And where the picktur blogger is permanently drunk due to the local beverage coming in too large bottles; please scuse typos.

Seen from the platform at Pangbourne railway station, the graffiti on the fence in the background is probably aimed at the Thames Valley London commuters. But be careful of you do quit your jobs - you might end up like these two!

As well as ocean swell, there are other after effects of storms. One is the amount of water falling in the water falls. I actually didn't know we live near a waterfall until this week. It is Scaleber Foss, and only 1.3 miles from our house (although up a stupidly steep hill). I learned later that it is a top photography spot, so it is lucky that James encouraged me to take my camera along just in case there was something to see.

Another storm yesterday, and the autumn colours are not going to last much longer. Better blog them while I still can.

The fun thing about the ocean, is that the waves can come quite a while after the weather. So, while the storm had blown over the day before, the sea was just getting going.
Some rain stopped us mountain biking on the way over to Scotland's east coast, but it had stopped by the time we got to the seaside.

My memories of autumn from when I were a lass are of slipping about on mushy brown leaves on the ground, and of wind, rain and days so dark you can barely see across the school hall. There must have been some climate change because we now have some sunny days with little hints of yellow and orange on many of the trees. It's nothing like Japan, obviously (many more degrees of climate change to go before we get there), but still...

In light of recent events, it seems appropriate to post these pickturs.
Spot the marathon man...
