Another one! Near Stratford Upon Avon this time. Calypso red. I was heading for the B4632, apparently one of Britain’s best roads. Two in less than a week! (and not including 3 others at this morning’s LDC meet!)

A338 Salisbury Road, Medina Green M330 1130am approx. I'm sure the roof was up despite the sun but was trying to see the reg plate so could be wrong :D

That was me on the way back from Castle Combe. I'm also somewhere near the back of the line in Geoff's photo above.

Shock, horror :shock: Surely not ?? There was a 50% chance of drizzle in Fifeshire today. And a 10% chance the local Cooncil would spread grit/salt

It couldn't have been Oor Jamie. Surely ?? :shock:

BRG SE with Dutch plates heading north on the A1 just south of Edinburgh. It was in convoy with about eight other Dutch Lotuses, including Elise, Esprit and even one brave soul in a Seven!

I gave them a wave and got a few back.

I hope the weather improves for their holiday.

That’s them OK.

Weather was complete crap north of Edinburgh today (hood up, headlights on, spray everywhere - but not a drop of water passed my original seals) but improved south of Edinburgh. We’re off to Paris tomorrow and that looks like it’s going to be a real test of the seals!

John

PS: And no you’re NOT surprised that I haven’t been following it on f-buk!
:evil:
PPS: weather as we passed Beadnell was nice.
