    Space Needle Visit

    April 24, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    Tuesday morning we went up to Seattle to visit the Space Needle. Got caught in rush hour traffic but weren't delayed too badly. As we paid the entry fee the cashier guy said half the view was obstructed as they were doing work on the viewing platform. The lift took 41 seconds to reach the top. The lift operator gave a running commentary all the way up and when we came back down.
    It was a beautiful day. The views weren't too badly obscured. One of the workmen had a habit of crossing on front of me as I was trying to take panoramic pictures

    Christmas Day Boat Trip

    December 25, 2017 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    We went on a 3 hour Boat trip at 10 am. Hoping to see Dolphins or Whales. Anything would have been nice. The trip out was good. The return trip wasn't so good. The ocean was rougher than I would have liked. The boat stopped for a half hour swim stop. Three got a & a gut went in.

    National Museum Of Flight

    July 25, 2016 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    It was raining and light winds. Took us an hour to get to the Museum Of Flight. It is situated near Haddington on the other side of Edinburgh.
    Their top exhibit is the Concorde. Last time we were there the tickets to get inside Concorde were sold out for the day. This time Concorde was included in the Admission price. The Queen always sat in A1 if she travelled on it.
    They have a lot of Historic aircraft here. My favourite is the Vulcan Bomber. This one saw action in the Falklands Conflict. The cockpit is very cramped. Full of old technology.
