The crashing of Lancaster bomber W4888

image

Crossing a cycle bridge outside Workum we saw this sign commemorating the crash site of a British Lancaster bomber on 4th May 1943. You can read about the incident here.

Sculptures in Den Oever

image

At first I thought these poles lined up for the benefit of sailors out on the North Sea (perhaps to help them navigate to the harbour). A sign advises however,  that they are designed to line up with the setting sun on the Summer solstice.

The North Sea

image

It was looking grand today, a touch cote d’azure in fact.

Cycling in Geneva

image

It’s a lovely warm day in Geneva. It is hardly a cycling paradise here: the car seems very much to be king, and large bendy busses negotiate the city streets. Still, the cyclists here appear to be ordinary people who are using a bicycle for transport, rather than a subhuman species.

View from Box Hill

image

At this stage in my ride today I had climbed both Leith Hill and Box Hill (for the first time). I was pleased to discover that neither of them are the most difficult climb I have done this year (by a long way). Leith Hill is the longer and more challenging of the two, and it comes first in the Ride London Surrey 100 race that I am doing next weekend.

A lost question

image

Someone left this Post It note on the road. I hope that they found the answer to their question, which is something used in the visual design of a Web project.
