Hmmm, this train looks like it goes in the wrong direction. Maybe it turns back south?
Milton Keynes is in the middle.
London is on the bottom.
Coventry, on the top, in the Cotswolds is where I landed.
Change of plans! Lets check out Coventry instead! In hindsight I wasn't a terrible way to get introduced to the train system and tourism in the UK.
The belltower is 295 feet to the top. 220'+/- up a tight spiral staircase to the observation platform. I had to take off my backpack and hug the wall to allow people to pass by.
The church features a large cross wired together after the bombing from two burned roof timbers.
This style of motorcycle; a dirt-tracker, flat-tracker or just a "Tracker" is envogue with bike builders these days. Minimal fenders, equal sized tires front and back, track bars and miniscule gas tank.
This one is from 1925 but looks like something from "Hot Chopper"! Everything old is new again.
On my way to the cathedral this morning I stopped on the sidewalk to let a family with a stroller (and screaming child) pass by. Across the street, sitting in front of the bus depot were a bunch of teenagers. Who, took this opportunity to throw snowballs at the stroller, the parents and my own person.
This image popped into my head; ("Wots all this then? Ready for a bit of the old ultra-violence?)
Don't get out of the boat, never get out of the boat.
