I have returned...

Kinch Snr & Jnr on the way back from Oxford

...whole and hearty, though somewhat soggier than planned.

Our trip to Britain was wonderful. We covered quite a lot of ground and I think it might actually be worthy of a Bob Cordery style travelogue. I regret not bringing my SLR, though I took a lot of pictures on the phone.

Highlights of the trip included -

- having breakfast with Old John and meeting Mrs Old John. I got a tour of the wargames room and returned with many, many figures.

- Worcester Cathedral. Words fail me. What a building and what a welcome.

- attending a sung Eucharist in Christchurch, Oxford. A wonderful service.

Britain is experiencing some pretty extreme weather at present, but fortunately it didn't really impinge on us until we were on our return journey. A great deal of credit must go to the road crews and police we saw on the way back, doing a hard job under pretty lousy circumstances. Well done chaps.

It was great to get home and see Mrs Kinch and the cats. I have a lot of blog posts to catch up on and some questions from Dave to answer.


  1. Sounds like a good trip. You might want to stray a bit further north next time...
    Where did you find that photo of the field I walk the dog in? It's been a bit moist here.

  2. It was alright. We left Oxford at 0730 and arrived Holyhead 1645.

  3. What would you have needed the self loading rifle for?
