Woke up early enough….


May 26, 2009 by welshcyclist

Yes,I could have gone for a ride this morning, but,very unusually,I stayed tucked up in bed until 08.00., had a leisurely breakfast, listened to some radio, then went for haircut. Later on in the morning Elizabeth and I went to B&Q to pick up a new rotary clothes airer, as they call it, but it’s a rotary clothes line as far as I’m concerned, when I was growing up we called them clothes lines, and that’s that.

On the way we stopped at the old railway viaduct at Cefn Coed, I’ve always wanted to walk over it, and the good news is it’s part of the National Cycle Network these days. It’s a very impressive structure, I’ll have to try and get the details/dimensions of it, as well as a full shot of it for a future post, but for now here are a few I took while we walked across it.
Still haven’t solved this problem of being unable to manoeuvre pictures around the blog, very annoying indeed. Hope you enjoy the shots, there’s plenty more.

    Not every day is a riding day. A slowish start is good too sometimes.Your walk over a railway viaduct reminds me of when I was a kid. There was a railway viaduct (still in use at the time) in our town, over part of the town centre, and we used to sneak across it for a dare.

    Those were the days, eh Nick ? Mind you such antics are frowned on today's railway, but we had such freedom when we were kids, nowadays they can't run about in the playground, without health and safety issues etc.. Were we so much more responsible ? I think not, probably too many interfering busybodies about today, or perhaps I'm missing something.
