Little Jack near Castle Stalker in Argyll. Someone was working on this a couple of years ago but seen nobody recently. A section of hull has been cut out to shorten the vessel. A bit sad really as an unfinished project which will probably just rot away. As I took this picture a skein of geese flew just overhead with loud conversation.

The weather here in Suffolk has been gorgeous over the last few days, getting into the mid- to high-20s by late morning. I've been heading out for a ride early in the day to avoid the heat. but scored a double with a monument and cafe breakfast, in the same village. £3.80 for fresh coffee and hot cheese and bacon pastry, just after 8.00 am. I read the details from the packhorse bridge sign over the coffee - it was easier to enlarge the photo on my phone than to fish out my glasses from the bottom of the pannier.

Not sure if I'm the only triker left who hadn't already done the route, but I thoroughly enjoyed a day's ride (in the rain) on the Tarka Trail between Braunton and Meeth, Devon. Stopping off for a coffee mid-morning at the Puffing Billy cafe (Great Torrington), then a pie and a pint lunch (and another pint, why not ?) at the Bull and Dragon pub in Meeth. Just 1/3 of a mile beyond the southern end/start of the route.

I'd say 85% tarmac, 15 % cinder (at the southern end), with two short tunnels and a good few bridges; the lights weren't just for showing off in the tunnels - with the days getting darker earlier, they were essential for the last few miles back to the B&B in Braunton.

Hi All
Emma what have you done with your homemade trikes !!
Andrew
We still have 4 , The two 20/20 's , project X , and another work in progress ( just have problems finding "in date" Time )
Since true retirement last year , l haven't had much building time and space since mums passing my " electricity connected " workshop space has shrunk. Ken and I have spent more time triking and doing a few e-conversions. This and ploughing more time into the garden and organising a bigger garage. Just need more time !!!!:rolleyes:
There has never been much peace for the wicked.

regards Emma
