Last weekend saw us braving the elements (well, it was windy and when the sun went in … freezing!) and taking a walk along East Overcliff to see the Thundercat racing.

Rounds 1 and 2 of Thundercat racing was taking place east of Bournemouth Pier and we were hoping to catch a couple of races from our vantage point on top of the cliffs.  After all, there couldn’t be a better aerial view.

We chose to start from the Jon Egging memorial, taking a few moments in silence to pay our respects before making our way to the fenced off cliff.  Seeing one of the official Thundercat photographers indicated we had chosen a good place!

UPDATE :  25th April – you may have seen the news about the landslide at the East Cliff – it was EXACTLY where we were standing to take these photos a week before it happened! 

The photos are a mixture from Pete’s Nikon DSLR and I used his previous camera (a Canon) plus my mobile phone.

I Spy …

Despite wearing my wind and waterproof jacket I was really cold (I only had on a thin jumper underneath) so after a quick walk we went back to the car for coffee and cake.  Ironically, the next day we went to Avon Beach and I dressed warmly this time.  It was a gorgeously sunny and warm day – people were out in their shorts, tees and flipflops (although there was still a chill to the air when the sun hid behind the clouds).

This weekend we’re hoping to chill at Bournemouth Square.  It’s the Jazz Festival and there will be a Jazz Village.  Just love weekends when the events start 🙂

What events are you looking forward to this year?
