Great afternoon in Stamford!

Not that long back in from a great afternoon looking around Stamford with my Mum and Dad! They picked me up at around 2:00pm. Then we went into Stamford, parking outside Homebase, since it’s free parking! Being Scottish, we are not going to pay to park the car, when we don’t have to!!

We then walked all the way up to Burghley House, which is a good 1 hour walk, from where we parked the car! I had some fun getting some photos.

Then we walked back into Stamford to get some food! We ended up going to the London Inn. Heard from a good number of people they do very good food also at good prices. Pleased to they they were not wrong!

After the meal, while walking back to the car. I got these photos of a Virgin hot air balloon over Stamford.

Once back home. It was time to walk the dog. Then watch some TV, while posting this!!

Had a great day cycling with a mate

Today I met up with a friend that I have been chatting to on the net for year and years… But till today, never got around to meeting up. It was great to get to meet you at long last Mark.

While he was here, both both had good look around Stamford. When he first got here, we went to Marks & Spencer to get some food. Then after that we went cycle to Burghley House. Then we cycled to Tallington to watch some train go nice on the ECML. Then after that we did some more cycling around the place. Before cycling back to Stamford, where we stopped at The Tobie Norris, we were hopping to get there, but did not start food service till 6pm. So we just had a nice drink and chat there, before going to Ask, which was lucky doing food. Big thanks to Mark, for picking up the bill. I will make sure I pay the next time. Then after the meal, we cycled around for a bit longer before he got the train back down to London town. So thanks once again to Mark for a fun filled day.

If you want to see the full cycle we did. Here is the map from the cycle :).
