WHERE'S YA BIN ?.
Below this picture was taken high on "Exmoor" between "Dulverton" and "Lynton".
Perhaps at this point I should say both Sue and I have attempted to rekindled a little of our our lost youth by a couple of years ago buying a Motorcycle each. Back in 1980 and 81 I had, first a second hand then a new "Honda CX500" and in 1982 Sue had a new "Honda CM250T", obviously when we became born again bikers we purchased ourselves the same models and we love them.

Below Yesterday at "Dunkery Beacon"just outside of "Wheddons Cross" this part of "Exmoor" is the highest point in Somerset (over 1700 ft) and gives stunning 360 degree views, it was a shame it was cloudy this day.It has been claimed that on a clear day it is possible to see 16 counties from up here.
This picture below was taken just yesterday (Wednesday) on a ride out to "Exmoor" around "Withypool"," Tarr Stepps" and "Challacombe"area's.This lovely roadside area of "Landacre" bridge is used as a picnic and paddling area, especially when the children are off school.
This picture below takes in the view from the road that skirts the sand dunes at the famous Surfing Town of "woolacombe". This road is around 650 meters long and was designed purely as a car park, it has parking for around 500 to 6oo cars, also a clean modern toilet block. Each space has in front of it a small grassy area to sit, picnic etc and the views from here really are something else. On warm summer days the air is full of "Hang Gliders" that push off from the 200ft high hills behind you and circle the area.
This picture was taken last week when we went for a ride onto the "Braunton Burrows" using the Toll road. This road follows part of the the Torridge/Taw estuary right down into the famous sand dunes that are the Burrows.This picture was taken at low water and looks across toward the old (RAF) camp at "Chivenor". If you enlarge this picture you can just make out servicemen in training running across the bridge, then having to do several press ups in the estuary mud.
The shot below was taken from a private car park overlooking the cliffs between "Morthoe" and "Woolacombe". We have done this stunning 2+ mile coastal walk before, it is hard but brilliant.
Below, We took this shot at the "Valley of the Rocks". This is just outside "Lynton & Lynmouth" on beautiful "Exmoor".
This is another "Valley of the Rocks" shot.
Below absolutely typical it had been a lovely sunny afternoon, until, we got the Camera out then up rolls the Cloud, never mind. This picture was taken as you approach "Downend"at "Croyde Bay" N Devon.
This picture below was taken in "Perranporth, Cornwall" on the day we searched unsuccessfully for our club's Cornish rally site.
Below, Try as we bloody might we just could not manage to ride our bikes up this hill as the signpost requests !!!!!. Picture again taken at the "Valley of Rocks", Lynton.
Joke of the Day.
