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.
