Saturday 19th May


A Right Royal Carry On..... And a Cancelled trip to Cornwall.

We were due to shoot off down to Cornwall today but sadly
we had to cancel as my partner has the builders in all this
week. It does seem a bit of a shame as the weather predictions
are good for this coming week.
Oh well, we'll have to settle for a September visit again.

VIA CORNWALL & DEVON TV


Including HD Aerial drone video footage.

I was pleased to find this video of popular Cornwall tourist hotspot
St Ives. And I've noticed that over the last couple of years that
youtubers down in the West Country are starting to make much
more professional videos thanks to new technology with the
use of video camera drones.
Of course we're not allowed so much freedom of use with
drones in heavily built up City areas. But for the fortunate
owners of video drones, it does allow them to film some quite
spectacular aerial shots that gives viewers an even more accurate
layout of the land.


SATURDAY  5th MAY  BANK HOLIDAY WEEKEND

Over the recent busy Bank Holiday weekend I managed to squeeze in another visit
to Portobello Road Market. I also happened to bump into the boys Lourenco and
Tomas from ThisBandUK. Unfortunately I just missed their Street performance
and they were packing up to leave. But I did have a quick word with them and even
got a couple of pictures of them. They did say that they would be performing at
Brick Lane Market on the following day, but I had already planned a visit to
The Little Venice Canal Festival. So hopefully I might see them at Portobello Road
another time as they said that they appear there every few weeks at weekends.

And quite clearly on a fairly warm day as the boy's t-shirts came
off.  No doubt to the delight of passing girls, and maybe a few
boys too.

can be found HERE.

Below is my Honesty plant. You might remember how I found
some seed pods on the local Heath, eventually planting those
seeds. And amazingly it has now sprouted it's own seed pods (below)
and almost overnight. They look a bit green
at the moment but eventually they turn flaky white.
And from there later in the Summer I can gather the seeds
and create another lot of Honesty plants which are currently
now in flower.



Above are the original seeds which I gathered in 2016,
keeping them in a jar over the Winter eventually planting
them in Spring 2017.


One of the stranger pictures I took on Hampstead Heath over the recent
Bank Holiday weekend.
I often refer to this gothic looking building as The Witches Cottage.
