Well, it's that time of year again. Off on the holiday trail for a week. Past expeditions have been described as "Withnail & I without the witty dialogue", and who knows, we may hit those heady heights again. We shall see.

One disadvantage of the timing of this trip, venturing as we are to a neck of the woods deeply unlikely to be blessed with much in the way of 21st Century information technology, is that I'm not going to be able to take part in the no-doubt strenuous interwebz-based debates that will take place following the announcement of the actor playing the Twelfth Doctor this coming Sunday. The excitement, the angst, the cheers, the tears, the jeers, all will be denied to me. I will no doubt more than make up for this when I am back online a week or so from now. ;)

In the meantime, I will leave you with this, a pic from my last jaunt. It's a sheep, looking at me over Hadrian's Wall.

Back in the summer of 2007, myself and a couple of like-minded associates, still flushed with the success of our epic daytrip to the Imperial War Museum site at Duxford the previous year (Liverpool to Cambridgeshire and back again in one day, by road - don't try it!) decided that the next obvious step was an expedition to Bovington Tank Museum in Dorset. It ended up being a week-long "experience", a sort of nightmarish, occasionally drunken, parody of the British holidaymaking paradigm. A bit like Withnail & I but without the sparkling dialogue. Or the cake. Or not one, but two Doctors.

I may (or may not) share some tales about it as I post about some of the photographs I took during this week (all I can say is, I hope you all like looking at tanks). For now, get a load of this, taken in the heart of the good old New Forest:

For [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook, we open with a picture of Rhuddlan Castle, in northeastern Wales, taken iirc sometime during the summer of 2010:
