Geo Musings

After a flurry of postings in May, my June and July have been a lot more sedate (boring?) on the geo front. Last weekend, though, armed with local map I decided to go check out some old benchmarks.

I suppose I should have guessed that most OS BMs marked on this map had long been superceded, but it was fun wandering around Exeter as it was 100 years ago.

I did find a newer variant though on South Street Baptist Church. I must have walked past it 100s of times.

On the Sunday I took myself east to Dorset to the Golden Cap.

What a beautiful viewpoint.

I love this shot although, apparently, it would have been better if I'd moved my rucksac first.

During the past month or so I've been bagging the odd geo fun item too.

Some wrapping paper which is far too beautiful to actually use as such.

Birthday presents - cool or what? Tubular Fells mug and Church Stretton. 13 07 30 Geo fun
And my absolute favourite. A new brolly.

Let's hope this doesn't get left in a taxi ever.
