Another installment of map-nerdery from me - here are all the 3 exit  
points we've used on this stretch so far, and I also marked the  
overhead wires. :)


Lovely to see you all! Anyone for a swim on Saturday (tomorrow)?  I  
don't know how many more swims I have in me this season but the  
weather today is encouraging.
