Hi Steve, excellent photos !!

I love those little roads down there... ventured out often during my long stays in Oxford... always had rental cars and did many more miles than I was supposed to ;-)

 

Oh, by the way, do you know what cricketers and snowboarders have in common?

 

They both seem to SIT a lot !!! grin.gifgrin.gif

 

Have a nice weekend.. it's gonna be HOT !!
