Nearly a year on – Salisbury by steam

I’ve been really busy this year consequently I haven’t posted in a long time. We went to Salisbury by steam yesterday. Had a great day and took some photos. Naturally we traveled first class!

And Singapore Again

I managed to squeeze in a business trip to Singapore just before Christmas. I stayed at the Park Royal Hotel on Upper Pickering. Here are some photos of it and its locality.

York Again

It’s a long time since I posted so here goes.

We managed a quick visit to York at the end of November on a Chartered Rail Tour run by ‘Rail Tours UK’. These are thoroughly recommended. We went to the Christmas Market which had horrendous crowds and the National Rail Museum which was much more to my taste. We were lucky we were able to see three of the famous A4 Pacific engines together.

The Caves at Cheddar

About a month ago my wife and I had a long weekend in Bristol. One one of our days out we went to Cheddar Gorge. We’ve been there before but the caves are always worth a visit. I’m not sure the Goblins are real though!

Another Boy’s Day Out

Another boy’s day out this time to the RAF Hendon Museum. Its a great day out and best of all – entrance is free! (car parkis a nominal charge though).

First off a de Havilland DH9A which caught my eye having an interesting history.

Last Post

of the holiday and of this year. It’s only taken me 3 months to put all the photos on the web. Here are the last few views. All night time photography. I bought an ND4 filter to play with and these are the results.

Singapore Botanical Gardens

I’m still trying to up-load the holiday photos. I’ve not taken many since – perhaps that is a good thing. Anyhow, the Singapore Botanical Gardens were fantastic and the National Orchid Gardens were even better. When we arrived it was tipping down with rain – which is why some of the views don’t have any people in them.

Singapore Marina Sands Hotel

Apparently they made enough money in a year from the Casino to pay the several billion dollar building cost. Who’d have thought of designing twin towers with a ship on top! Mad!

The stern end has a viewing deck with a restaurant/bar and the other end contains the swimming pool for the hotel. Believe it or not there was no wind blowing on top! We had a cocktail – we’ll it was hot and we had to drink something!
