Royal Ascot

As Ascot week wraps up, here are a few photographs from Ladies' Day. I've been asked by a friend to write a posting for her blog about Ascot, so there will be lots more pictures there. I'll put up a link once everything's up on her blog. In the meantime, here's a little taster.

A better way to commute

After enduring the daily commute to Canary Wharf on the Tube, I recently discovered a much better way to travel. A fast boat service connects Docklands with central London, with departures every 20 minutes during the rush hour.

I can't imagine a more pleasant way to travel home on a warm sunny day.
