Just back from a long weekend.
I took Monday off because I spent Sunday in London at a wargames tournament.
It was an early start...
Sunrise over my local train station.
Changing onto the faster train a couple of stops down the line - the only way I was going to get to London on time! Nice fast, posh trains...
One of my games in full swing. This was a 2 day event, but as I could only commit to one day I had been paired up with another guy who could only attend on Saturday. I was sort of dreading that he would have done well in his games, leaving me to ruin it all but I needn't have worried. Of a possible 50 points he had scored 0. I could only improve on his score. After 2 very entertaining games, I raised our score to 21 - one game that I almost won and another that was a fairly bloodless draw.
The event was made even better by the availability of beer and very good Indian food at lunchtime. I think that some of the guys were suffering, though. For those who had attended both days, this was their 3rd Indian meal in 2 days...
This submarine (a retired Russian one, I think) is now moored in the River Medway, which the train crosses on its way to London. It always gives me a feeling of "what the heck?"
Me, on the way home after a long but very entertaining day.
Yesterday was a day of almost-rest - had a snooze on the sofa in the afternoon - a great way to spend Mondays, I decided.
