A day off from work a reasonable day weather wise, and I fancied some sea air.

 so it was down to Brighton, then along the coast, stopping at the Longman at Wilmington and then Home.

October 1st Dorking Boots fair

a rather damp morning, and a quieter event than usual possibly due to weather, and maybe because the shop has gone, nothing persuaded any money out of me this time.

Middlefarm Apple Festival 22 Oct

a bit different this one, a apple festival at Middlefarm near Lewes in East Sussex, the celebration of the apple mainly seemed to be Cider, with dancing, food, a fair ground, and music tent, oh and plenty of real ale, a nice way to spend a day.

Pictured here, are friends john and Lou and their Huntersmoon Morris men.

Nov 25

having started to worry about the state of my tyres , I headed out on a foul windy day for a new set (which need to be washed to remove the blue)

on the way back there was a tempest of biblical proportions, I snapped these couple of snaps at Horsley Towers before the floods hit

Dec 9th

the floods having receded for a moment  I headed off for the Kempton Auto jumble

It was packed with queues going to enter back miles from turnstiles, apparently the gates were opened an hour early as well , the Panther Owners Club turned up enmass I decided  not to queue, and enjoyed a ride to Putney.
