Espresso News 2005


My brother, David, died unexpectedly on 11th October. I'm still looking for words to encompass the loss. My predominant feeling is regret for all those good things in life he'd never experienced, and now never will.

David's funeral was on 20th October. Two of his oldest friends gave moving personal tributes, and we said farewell to David over 'Shine On You Crazy Diamond' by Pink Floyd, one of his favourites...

A photo of the floral tributes, including an amazing replica of a Saab badge from his friends at the UKSaabs forum.


Loch Katrine and the Crianlarich mountains from Ben Venue



Had a very active time in Glen Coe & the Trossachs, climbing five Munros/tops -- Bidean nam Bian, Stob Coire nan Lochan, Ben Lawers (at 1214m, my highest UK peak so far), Beinn Ghlas & Ben Lomond -- as well as Ben A'an & Ben Venue. I also highly recommend the coastal walk along Loch Hourn to Barrisdale Bay on the wild Knoydart Peninsula. More photographs are linked here & here.


Walks have had a local focus this spring/summer, exploring the gentle Bickerton & Peckforton sandstone hills in Cheshire, the Stiperstones & the Long Mynd in Shropshire, and the Eglwyseg limestone edge & the tourist-free Arenigs area of North Wales.


Alpenglow at the Devil's Thumb Ranch



Saw us in Winter Park, Colorado, where I bought some nifty new ski boots & had my first attempt at cross country skiing at the peaceful Devil's Thumb Ranch. More photos are located here


Prague castle, from Charles Bridge



Visited Prague on a very belated birthday jaunt; photos can be found here
