great weather for wind surfing

Isle of Wight is home to an Extreme Sports festival. Ideal for an island which is currently experiencing 80mph winds. You can read reviews here
so we only saw a very brief bit as it’s not great entertainment for very small kids thanks to all the waiting involved.
it’s just about impossible to get decent shots of people doing their thing out to sea unless you’ve got a fancy 1 metre long zoom thing for your camera (which i haven’t).
so you’ll have to make do with these surfers.

there also seemed to be an unhealthy interest in incontinence pants.

stained glass windows

this stained glass window in a church in ghent produced a psychedelic overlay on this painting. it was like someone had gone mad with highlighter pens.
