A Visit to Vic and Al’s

With a crisp clear morning and a touch of blue sky, I couldn’t pass up the chance to go for a run, so run I did. Steve came with me on the bike and I ran alongside the Thames, looking across at Docklands, watching the varied water traffic going up and down and watching the... Continue Reading →
