Things i've done in the last week....the summer weather got me out on the road, down to the ramp, around the bay and a trip over to Cardiff on the train......                                                                    Ione directing the shots down at the ramp. She is now my main filmer for the documenting of my return to skateboarding. Day one of my documented return included rockfakies, pivots, grinds, grind reverts.....   

Phone pictures 25/05-29/05/10....4 days in May.
.........through the gardens on the way home for some lunch we saw these amazing colours...

Then we went out for a ride, me and ione in the seat on the back and we headed for a quick geocache down by the Cork Ferry.

Bike ride, half way break.

 Found the Cork Ferry Travel Bug waiting room and left the spider travel bug we had found the week before near Kidwelly.Geocaching over and we headed back round the bay all the way up to Mumbles.......ione fell asleep on the bike with the excitement of it all and the heat.

Trying to shake the fear and get some strength back before i attempt a rocknroll on Wales smallest nemesis and the thing that put me out since last August, rocknrolls, not so much a trick but a way of turning...the next step up from a kickturn....anyway i don't bounce back as well as i did when i was a mere youth of 31, 10 years on and a few days before the birth of my second child i am being a bit wary. These days of documenting everything on blogs have led me to record my phoenixlike rise from the ashes of injury, breaks and strains will not stop me so this is the first of many seemingly repetitious clips.....hopefully, if no more appear then i am once again in plaster or leg up with ice packs...giddy up!!

Mum got hold of a video of the street party for the royal wedding in 1981....Desborough embraced the party spirit and this was our local one in the next street....someone had a video camera in 1981 too, it must have been massive but i don't remember seeing one....battery problems at the end of the clip...i'm in one of the races and so is Rich.
