Psst.. re Mr Mclean's above post, just thought I wondered if 'cottaging' was what he intended to say? 8O

Well... after the previous mentions of "snoodling" on the podcast, I'm not surprised. :wink:

Wow...Paul must have gone to both Stonehenge and the Roman Baths on the least crowded days of the year.

I found this to be a bit more typical of the crowds at the baths on my two excursions over the last two years.

(snip...that didn't work out in posting the image...)

Okay, let's just say you couldn't move about for all the crowds.

What's that? A SIZ 30 stone? Your STR must be Mythos-enhanced...

Thanks for sharing pictures from your holiday! Looks like you had a nice time.

If you like big piles of dirt, you should come visit the Midwest, we've got some nice Indian mounds, glacial formations... and uh... um... stuff?

Glad you had a great vacation.

Let me guess. The next photo looks simaler to the above but has the stone on its side with a pair of feet sticking out.

On the a serius note that Stonehenge picture looks suprisingly desolate - what did you use to scare the touriststs away?

I suspect Paul tried to summon a Byakhee just to prove that you can't summon a Byakhee. :wink:

No sooner back, than off again!

Helen and I are off to "The Big Smoke" (aka London) for a Birthday break as I'm 20 for the second time round.

Lots of sightseeing planned, Gaslight & "Jack the Ripper" tours and museum exhibitions, dining at the Ritz and likely a trip to Leisure Games, Forbidden Planet, and apparently wool shop.

All followed by a trip on the overnight sleeper train to Glasgow for a bit of Scottish air!

We should be back by next Thursday (16th Oct.), keep an eye out for updates on the YSDC Twitter account!

Again, many happy returns (in advance) Paul. Sounds like a great trip...looking forward to seeing some photographic evidence.

Cheers!

Helen and I now both have our phones enabled for Twitter updating, so we'll see what happens, though this time I don't expect to be drinking Helen's still warm Bath water!

Looking at Paul's latest twitter. I used to walk past that shop on the way to the Orc's Nest Rpg shop (which is still there) way before Forbidden Planet moved to that area. Let's just say that the road it's on leads directly into Soho. I'll leave it to your imagination as to exactly what sort of "Lovecraft" they were purveying. It was a respectable looking bookshop on the top floor, but the basement... 8O . I'm sure neither Paul nor Helen had any idea, though. :wink:

Pretty good, but British Camp has better views.

It was always a fun stop for taking photos. :) It's now been turned into a Theatre ticket shop.

Here's a few photos we did take:

Off working in the north of this fair land for a few days (without net connection). I should hopefully be back before the weekend.

Easy ways to see if I'm elsewhere (so to speak): I'll try and update my sig. and Lovecraftiana enters a period of slumber... :8E:

Headed up to the Lake District by any chance? If so, pix of Lake Windermere would be nice. The place figures rather prominently of Thrice Damned Dunbriar.
