Serendipity.

I thought I'd finished the Windermere images but forgot I swapped over cards. I had a nagging feeling I'd taken more so pleasantly surprised to find another pano and a couple more images. Taken on our walk back to Waterhead from Holme Crag.

 

Had another pleasant surprise over the weekend. A friend I've known for over 30 years and who was in all the same sets as me in school has just been appointed 'RED 10,' in the Red Arrows. He'd been training the next generation of pilots out of Valley for a few years and the standing joke is that he 'Ain't even Maverick, he's bloody Jester!'

 

Odd feeling but I feel super proud to know him and to see him doing so well. Every time I see the T2 Hawks whilst in the Lakes I always wonder if he's flying. 'RED 10' is the Red Arrows Safety Supervisor and is also the public face for them and provides the commentary at displays. He is also responsible for flying the Red Arrows photographers. Highly doubt it but it wouldn't do any harm to ask if I could cadge a lift at some point!

 

Here's the press release. Muzzy as we know him is the one in the middle looking every inch the pilot😊
