A winter's day trip to Crickhowell, Powys - photos

Here's a few photos:

A trip to Ramsgate, Kent

We recently enjoyed a pleasant walk from Broadstairs along the beach to nearby Ramsgate.

We rocked the to the impressive marina but the town centre was a bit on the disappointing side with lots of rubbish 60s architecture.

A rainy winter's day in Broadstairs, Kent

Some photos from our walk around Broadstairs in Kent, yesterday afternoon. I love walking around seaside towns out of season! 

The weather was really dramatic when we were there - one minute it would be freezing cold and hammering down with hail, and minutes later the sun was out!

More pics soon!

Some London snaps

A few photos taken during my wander around town yesterday.


Checking out the excellent external link'Londoners Through a Lens' exhibition at the Getty Gallery in Fitzrovia.


Regent's Park fountain.


Empty deckchairs, Regent's Park.


Curious sign by Warren Street and Euston Road.

The Tree House Gallery, Regents's Park

Billed as "an innovative public project featuring a free daily program of events, arts, discussions, musicology and activities," the Treehouse Gallery in Regent's Park tasked itself with acting, " as a catalyst to ignite the collective imagination, encouraging adults and children alike to explore a variety of creative responses to nature."

We're not entirely sure what all that means, but we definitely enjoyed our visit and found it a pleasant place to hang out for a while.

Looking like a road protest site transported into a central London Park, the Treehouse Gallery put on daily activities, talks and workshops, focussed around two large treehouses.

Red Hook, Brooklyn, NYC photos

Last winter we paid another visit to Red Hook, Brookyln ? a down-at-heel, former industrial port which was once dubbed the 'crack capital of America.'

Here's some photos I've finally got around to posting up!:

Cilgerran and the River Teifi, west Wales

We stayed at Fforest which offers posh camping in the middle of a lovely ancient wood near the lovely village of Cilgerran.

There's some great walks to be had, with the River Teifi offering some spectacular views.

Carmarthen & Cardigan, Wales - photo features

Here's some pics from our recent holiday in south west Wales. I was astonished how beautiful and picturesque the area was.

We had a chuffin' fantastic time and can't recommend the area enough for a walking/cycling and, err, drinking trip.
