Being on holiday this week I decided one trip I wanted to do was brize. Well booking a hotel ahead can have drawbacks as I picked 2 of the wetter days to go! We had delayed our trip slightly on the wed with the forcast saying a better afternoon. However the 3 hour journey turned into 7 hours with traffic delays and flooding everywhere! It was so bad that we only arrived at 3.30 but the journey turned out to be worth it.

1.Station road leaving the village. It was more a wade/walk than we expected.

2.However the light made it worth it.

3.Then the circuit bashing C-17 made a T&G that was perfectly timed light wise.

7.The day after started brightly, but we knew we were on a time limit as the next storm arrived later in the day. Not often I get to see a 124.

12. One of the types I wanted to see.

By mid afternoon the storm front was edging in, and so we had another interesting 7 hour journey home. But it was worth it I think.

Thanks for looking Ian
