Sep 18, 2012 - Ned Kelly is alive and living in Brighton

18 Sept 2012 We drove along the coast to Brighton – pretty industrial and cerainly not a luxury beachside location – huge pebble banks and wooden changing sheds – Beachside homes very ordinary, and not much greenery. Then into Brighton – parked in a multi story car park – 4 pounds/hr!!!!!! Where are you now Ned – oh, Chairman of the local Council!!! We visited the Royal Pavillion, Bizarre on the inside and outside, but very impressive – unlike other stately homes and palaces we have seen. Then some time at the beach and on the pier. Also...

The 1950’s and early 1960’s Single seater formula 1 cars were also exciting. The...

Sep 15, 2012 - Warning, Warning! Sharks seen near Oxford

15 sept 2012 We awoke to a beautiful day, one we would be spending most of driving!! Farewelled Jo and headed off at 9:15 guided by Trusty Tom. Tom took us to Baslow where we took over – J had written down all the roads we needed until right near Twyford and C was the navigator. Slight hiccup in Chesterfield rectified by a quick U turn. Then on to the M1 and the miles melted away….. Things were going well along the M40 and the reqired off ramp was getting close when the traffic stopped – 45 min creeping along in 1st (car smash) ,then away...
