The Lizard

The Lizard

Today, we visited The Lizard, the most southerly point of the British mainland. The weather continued to be unpredictable and on the stormy side, but for several hours the cloud cover broke and we enjoyed stunning blue skies. The wind, of course, was still very strong and at times it pushed so hard I had to crouch down to keep from falling over. As we walked slowly along the cliff top path (part of the South West Coast Path), I stopped to recorded several video clips of the turbulent sea, attempting to capture the sensation of the place—the raw feeling of standing at the edge of the land, gazing out over the vast, wind-churned, breathtaking expanse of the North Atlantic. I later combined several of the clips I captured at The Lizard with others from Land’s End into a single short video:

I’ve never been enthusiastic about writing New Year’s resolutions so we’ll see how this goes. Let me say at the start that I’m not going to be all militant about writing them.

October had its chance to be the best biking month of the year. Instead, it decided to rain. It then proceeded to drizzle, pour, mist and pee down.

Pictures from a trip to southern Illinios with my mom to visit Garden of the Gods National Wilderness in the Shawnee National Forest. The lack of concrete in southern Illinois is refreshing.
