|MISTY ON THE PURBECK RIDGE TODAY|
Monday was an absolutely stunning day with gorgeous bright sunshine and quite warm for this time of year as well.
Today the early morning mist just seemed to hang around all day as it did yesterday.
|JD RIDING IN MONDAYS SUNSHINE|
Today JD and I met a young guy at the ferry who was on his way to Lands End. He had set off from Chelmsford on Sunday and he intended to get to Weymouth for this evening.
He didn't have a tourer but was riding an adapted mountain bike....he told me that he expected to get to Lands End for the weekend and then he planned on getting a train back home.
He said that he had a few days with nothing to do so he thought that he would have a bike ride.........
|MAIN STREET IN CORFE....|
In the picture above you can just make out Corfe Castle shrouded in the mist at the end of the town.
|THATCHED COTAGE WITH THATCHERS SIGNATURE ON ROOFLINE|
If you look at the picture above you can see the cottage and it's thatched roof and also the 'signature' that the thatcher has left on the roofline in the shape of a bird.
A lot of thatchers leave their 'signature' on their work in the shape of an object or bird or something similar. These 'signatures' are individual to each thatcher and show the roof as having been completed by them.
|BACK ON THE PURBECK RIDGE BEFOR THE DESCENT BACK TO THE FERRY|
It's always great to go for a cycle ride with a mate...........
