Thames walk from Marlow

Easter Monday, once a chance to catch up during the bank holiday, now a day that I religiously take away from my desk.  The coming week will be a busy road trip, so it seemed appropriate to balance with a quiet walk along the Thames in the first...

Photo Fail

Recently someone accused me of being stingy with pictures of my niece, so I felt the need to explain myself. I no longer take photos of her, because I'm not allowed to use my phone.Once upon a time I showed Priya the camera roll on my phone and she s...

Morning along the River Cam

We’re wrapping up revenue and budget forecasts, following on strong investor interest at last week’s pitch event.  I did a rough spreadsheet to show how a strong product pipeline, flat operating costs,  a modest assumptions about market...

Sammamish at Sunrise

Delta called late last night to ask if I was aware that I’d left my passport on the plane.  It seems that the case slipped from my bag sometime during the overnight flight, and my usual survey of the seat and floor hadn’t noted the absence.&...

Summer scenes

Although summer is about theater, art, and festivals, its also a time that I look forward to leaving the crowds behind.  I enjoy the quieter moments with small boats, coastal paths, and country drives, where there’s almost always something une...

Rambling along Warbarrow Bay

Lining up to take my turn at capturing the scene, I found that it became even better as I descended toward the crescent stone beaches below. The path down to the water leads from the corner of the carpark opposite Tyneham's entrance: I found it...

Then and now, along the harbour

Sixty years ago, Parkstone Bay was the base for a fleet of flying boats that connected England to the world.  Imperial Airways relocated from Southampton to Poole in 1939.   The British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC, the  pre...

Gen Me

Who decided that little girls are made of sugar and spice and everything nice? I have a new niece in my life, and there's no sugar coating. There is definite cuteness, but there is also willfulness, manipulation and a stubborn streak wider than a Kar...

Weekends always mean more when the week has been particularly demanding.   A bit of spring warmth arrived as well, so it was a good day to drive over to Pangbourne-on-Thames for some time along the Thames riverbanks If you're a commuter...

A dart in a map

Abbotsbury?  I frowned, running a finger down a list of bistro’s and galleries.  At least a few were open on a Sunday, I jotted down a couple of post codes.  A bit off  the path, but not that far a drive. The map showed a villag...

Along the Thames walk

Autumn has thudded into northern Europe this weekend: grey skies and rain, dark until 7 am and cold at noon.  It’s sudden, last week I was enjoying coffee and conversation in shirtsleeves at Branksome Beach, now it’s a hearty pasta casserole...

Life, lately. From the sublime to the ridiculous.
