Yogi Berra! This always makes me think of a similar quote which I seem to be using a lot at the moment, from Woody Guthrie: "Take it easy ... but take it!"

When you come to a fork in the road, take it.

Cheers Mike!
Ah, so in this case it's not - I'd like to say it's principal, but the truth is I've just never gotten around to getting a smartphone! So these photos are all from a little dedicated compact camera (a Sony DSC-WX350) - it's fairly basic but seems to have improved the results, especially considering my lack of photographic skill.

Of course this means if it does stop photographing it's not much use for anything else. So rather relieved it mysteriously "recovered"!

Hi Jon
Great pics as usual.
BTW is that dodgy camera one of those that can also make phone calls and find satelites for the Ride With GPS app?

Thanks Kathleen, glad it's enjoyable! Yep, the fens are a really strange landscape, quite atypical really, and are certainly the lowest elevation in the country. If the pumps (now electric, but originally these were all wind powered and set up by Dutch engineers) are ever turned off, the whole area would eventually slowly flood again.

Ah, thanks, yep could be. I wasn't sure if it was injured or sick in some way at first, but it looked quite intact when I passed it, so that would make sense!

Thanks Scott! I think my photography is (slowly) improving ... though it might just be having a better camera!

Another great ride. Appreciated the history a lot. The fort was cool, as was the causeway. I was surprised some of the fens are still below sea level. You ride, I learn.

Could be a groundling. Fledged but not yet sure of its wings. Crows are one species that do that.

No, but an appealing presentation of it.

Kathleen Jones commented on a photo in Mission Mirror

Never heard of the Cardington Sheds until a few years ago when they had a twitter conversation with Moffett Hangar 1, also an airship hangar here in California. (Hangar 1 is now just a frame since its shell was removed because it was full of asbestos. The Google Boys paid the $1M to have that done. For a while they were allowed to fly their personal 747s in and out of Moffett Field next door to the Googleplex.)

I have helped remove trees growing through fences. Leaving branches that have grown around the wires is often the best course of action.
