|Just a tree that caught my eye...|
|Even at mid-day in the winter the sun never gets very high,|
so when the sun does come out, you see extremely long shadows.
|Nice crib... if yer a crazed killer! Yup, this old mansion has|
been converted into a prison for the criminally insane.
(Keep ridin' fellas...)
I hadn't been on my bike in almost two weeks (shocker!) and I wasn't feeling too motivated to leave at 7:30 in the morning... in the cold... and in the dark. But by the time we arrived in Usk at 10:30 the sun was out, the temperature had climbed to around 10c and a glorious day had begun.

Today it's raining and cold again... a typical Welsh December day. At least it gives me time to work on this blog, which has been sorely attended this year. I'm planning on dedicating myself to writing one post a week regardless of whether I ride or not... but I'm littered with big ideas.

|Yes. John wore Christmas lights. A truly unique fella.|
