Monday Morning Blues – Lyme Regis in Dorset, UK

This weekend we ventured westwards from London to Dorset. Luckily Storm Arwen bypassed us most of the time, even though one tree did come down and block one of the central thoroughfares. This is a picture of the very nice pub that we had our lunch in on Saturday.

Dead Woman's Pass, Inca Trail, Peru

Monday Morning Blues – On The Inca Trail in Peru
