Trundled up and down the Brunel Cycle Trail with Charlotte Church today in
quite heavy mistiness - (had to keep reminding myself to take it easy) then
I realised I'd lost my phone somewhere. It was fastened to the bikeframe by
a clip which has never let me down before. Had a look round all the gates
and suchlike where I might have inadvertently knocked it off, but no sign.
The battery was knackered and I need a new phone anyway, but as ever it's
the stuff on the sim card. I've reported it lost and am now relying on the
good nature of people who use the cyclepath - I'm fairly sure someone will
have handed it in.
I did notice that where there previously was a bench at the side of the
trail, there is now a picnic table. Quite ironic really, as they have sited
it on top of a bridge where the road passes under the trail from one side to
the other in a very tight S bend - the majority of vehicles negotiating this
underpass beep their horns at great length to avoid collision with oncoming
vehicles - so the only picnic area on a 9 mile woodland trail is situated at
its noisiest point. Wonder who thought that one up?

...on a lighter note, my purpose in Tenby was to attend a meditation session
at the ECCO Centre.
I sat by the harbour for a while before I went.

Quite some time ago I posted an image from the lovely victorian/edwardian
architecture of Tenby Station, and many people who had passed though said
station said they'd never noticed it.
I'm not there often, as I HATE travelling on the local train, but I was
there briefly tonight, and got a couple of pics which perfectly illustrate
the complete lack of sensitivity used when expanding the station. The top
picture shows the original westbound platform with castiron pillars and a
bit of decor to mask the industrial construction. The second picture shows
that when they extended the canopy they did add a few little touches to try
and stay in keeping, but on the eastbound side they didn't even hide the
girders they used. I was there 10 minutes during which time I witnessed a
couple of drug deals in the carpark and got harrassed by a handful of
pissed-up twelve year olds. Depressing.
