Returning from Bern, 11-12 March

Charging points seem to be on offer…
…but there is only one…
…and it is out of order. It was the same in each of our sample of service stations. Electric vehicles crossing France from UK to Switzerland? The infrastructure was not as advertised.

In Bern, February to March 2020

An update. These are travel photos. Interesting, for us at least, but not the life-changing news to be described in a subsequent post.

The Aare

Neubrücke and the Aare
Looking across the Aare from Bremgarten to the footpath on the South side of the river. When you take that path, you wonder at first what huge device is shaking the footway, and you. It is soon clear you’ve been crossing the efflux from a hydroelectricity generating station. Nice.

Pwll Du again

In Ship Cottage again. A week earlier this year. Weather much the same as last year, though less cold.

High Pennard. On the Wales Coast Path/Llwybr Arfordir Cymru.
Light lunch at The Coffee Shop, Pennard.
The Murder Mystery: “Murder in the Roaring Twenties” provided by Sophie. Great idea. Sarah is out of frame, adjusting her camera.
Sarah as Booboo B’Doo, wife of Bebop B’Doo..

Put it to the People

23 March. At a rough guess, about twice the number of people who were at the March for a People’s Vote.

A long wait at the advertised starting point in Park Lane. A bottleneck into Piccadilly. We eventually turned into Green Park, eventually to meet our daughter, Sophie. Lunch in St. James’s Park and then to Parliament Square, still crowded long after the speeches has finished. In addition to the route of the march itself, many roads in the West End had been closed, apparently in response to unexpectedly large crowds.
