OK it’s holiday blog post time. This summer’s edition comes to you from Dorset in England and the Peloponnesian coast of Greece.
Little to report from the Peloponnese I’m afraid, beyond a constant stream of what I think were these guys below from the nearby base at Araxos. I’d forgotten the Hellenic Air Force still has some A-7s. And one of these C-130s hacking round the circuit.
But in England things were much more interesting. For one reason or another I ended up in this picturebook village in Dorset (which I think had better remain nameless. although no doubt someone will shortly have some fun with a comment.) What I didn’t expect to find there was this:
By coincidence a few minutes after I took the pictures above I had the chance to experience just what they’re unhappy about.
You can see their point of view. But the problem is that some of the neighbours who don’t like the Gazelle guy also don’t like each other much, for entirely unrelated reasons. So a co-ordinated protest may not be so easy to achieve. It’s not exactly Midsomer Murders but it would make a decent sitcom. Aah, the English and their castles.
