Ouch!

Looks like we are now getting the bad weather from the UK, it has gone cold and rainy and windy, still a taste of refreshing Autumn after all the heat and dryness will drag everybody out of their stupor.
This morning on my way to work I decided to point the bike over the “saddle” a ridge of low hills east of the Rhine valley.

And a nod to my chariot of fire

Vineyards and Orchids and narrow roads just made for motorbiking, at one point I grabbed myself a handful of juicy sweet grapes and munched the lot in one go, spitting the kernels out like a machine-gun.

Bad air coming in from over the Vogesen

The apple harvest is on, all wooden boxes and ladders on the trees, almost too kitschy to be true, I picked an apple and took a bite.
The thing was writhing, a set of earwiggy pincers snapping at me out of the hole.
Yuck! That apple got well and truly flung, still it could have been worse, half a earwig, or even worst, just the hole.
I rode on, at one point the road is lined by apple trees, as I said it was getting windy and the wind blew the frikking apples off the branches, I got a full broadside at 70 Clicks an hour, I could not see for all the applesauce and bits flying around. And it hurt, now I am full of apple shaped bruises and will take my apples in Cider from now on thank you please.

Re: Ouch!

The bad weather looks as if it has eased off from what we experienced yesterday on the South coast of England

Re: Ouch!

That really made me laugh out loud. Blimey. Whatever floats your boat.

You would have been terribly excited during the big storm of 1987 which took away Shanklin pier on the Isle of Wight.

Deep Purple, looks lovely - just like home!

Ahh nothing like a storm at sea, they say.
But take it from me on a day like that it is better to be on land looking out to sea then out at sea looking at land.

Kamarate - are you from the Isle of Wight? I was born there and lived there till I was in my early 20's. Vividly remember the pier being swept away by the storm, along with large parts of Blackgang Chine!
