    Just realised that it's cup final day on Saturday.

    Yeaaah.

    The roads go quiet mid afternoon.

    Always a treat.

    Will be taking advantage of the empty roads and sun. Loading up with a picnic, driving out into the Dales for a walk and probably some more filming.

    Better than the usual Cup Final Day.

    Quiet from about midday.

    Up the Fosse to test drive a ragtop.

    No need to speed; Lovely just to have an open road.

    Then an evening pootle through Chipping Norton, down through Woodstock, home via Burford (lovely and quiet), and back over the top to home.

    Lovely long shadows looking across Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire.
    Regards

    Had a great day. No traffic on the roads and found a new one, to me, to drive on.

    Then a nice spot to park the car for a picnic.

    Sadly I killed a few bugs so have to clean it again.

    Missed the cup final & wedding unfortunately! Had a good 3/4 day at London Motor Show, Excel. Found the Car SOS guys & had brief chat/pic.

    Then had a really interesting & good chat with Les Edger about the new Griffith & other things on the TVR stand. Thoroughly nice guy.
