Siv is Getting me a Garmin Forerunner 205 for my birthday (a little early I know, as I want to use it on PJ's 40th bithday walk in Mid-June).
Due to attrocious weekend weather, the first test I was able to perform was IN A CAR driving to Ikea Lakeside.
I uploaded the data from the device to the Motion based website and got the above map (it overlays your route onto Google maps)...So it seems pretty accurate, tracking me down the A12, A127 and M25, and the statistics on the website are extremely detailed.
Its a holiday weekend here in the UK, and as you might expect, the weather is pretty bad! Fortunately Saturday was OK giving Siv and I a chance to get out and do some gardening, as well as seeing how some of the plants are coming on.
Here's a little garden guest walking across Siv's gloved thumb.
A group of us met at The Guinea Grill in Mayfair last night to see off Kev (and Carole and George of course), before they leave for Australia on 7th July. Having known Kev since I was 9, its going to be strange with him not around! Other topics discussed included PJ's upcoming 40th birthday and what food we were going to order....No Dave, we're not ordering chilli peppers!
On Saturday, we took a trip out to Aldra to see Siw and Olav's friend Rami and his family. The weather going out was OK, but coming back was a bit extreme! Below are a few photos of the trip to Aldra. All of our photos from our, all the photos from our trip to Mo can be found here:
We set off to Selnes on Thursday night, and had a few relaxing days there. Even though the weather wasn't too kind, we managed to fit quite a few things in, visiting Konsvikosen ("Kosikosen"), as well as fitting in a fishing trip. Below are a few photo highlights, all the photos from our trip to Mo can be found here:
After an early breakfast, we checked out of our hotel, the Meyergården hotel, and went to PK's confirmation. After the confirmation, we headed off for a dinner with lots of friends and family, where cousin Siw gave a good speech introducing all of the guests to each other.
