This is just a quick heads up journal to let y'all know that I'm going to be offline until the 18th.
I'm going to be visiting my Grans for the week, and there's no internet access up there. Although I don't leave until tomorrow, it's unlikely that I'll be online much for the rest of today, due in part to us getting some of our packing done, but also largely because I've been spending most of today battling a sodding migraine
In the past while visiting Gran, I used to be able to (someitmes) use the BT-Fon hotspots up there to get online. Now that we've switched ISP's from BT to Sky though, I won't be able to access the hotspots (not that the damn things worked properly anyway)
As usual, I'll be visiting the West Somerset Railway while I'm there.
The plan is to go up to the WSR on the 13th, and travel via train up to Minehead for the Summer Festival Airshow, where I'll (hopefully) get to see the Red Arrows display team. This is of course assumign that the weather stay nice. Last year the airshow was cancelled due to the atrocious weather. Hopefully this year won't be a repeat of last years disappointment, and I'll be able to get lots of good photographs to upload here.
Later on in the week, I'm planning to get some shots of the steam hauled Torbay Express as it passes my Gran's place on the 17th. I'm not sure which locomotive will be hauling it, but it looks like either 5029 Nunney Castle or 34046 Braunton are the most likely contenders.
In addition to that, I'll of course be trying to get some nice wildlife and nature photographs taken too, for those of you who aren't as interested in locomotives and aircraft
So, I shall see you all when I get back. I'm gonna head off now and knock back some more Migraleve tablets
