So windy here. I've left the drones indoors and ventured out with the Pocket2 for some Slo-Mo action with the high tide breaking against the sea wall.
I got a bit too close.  The Pocket2 was OK on its sturdy tripod, but I got a taste of the briny and wet trouser cuffs

Magnificent slo-mo video Mr. B.    I love how it captures the waves slowly rolling up against the sea wall and then turning it into a spray of water. Nothing like a little salt spray on the face early in the morning.

I got a face-full for sure
Luckily the spray missed the lens of the Pocket2, but the body was splashed

If it was cold water probably gave you a quick jolt.  Good to know it didn't get on the Picket 2 lens.  Salt water and camera lens don't mix well.

I saw in one of your posts you are headed back to France.  Do you have relatives there or just miss the country?

No relatives there. Just visiting some old haunts and a few new ones, and catching up with friends there on the way round.

Sounds like it will be an interesting and possibly nostalgic trip.  Enjoy it but be safe.

Beautiful sunny morning here but still high winds.
I suspect the Pocket2 will be the only device deployed today.

The original plan was to sail from Holyhead to Dun Laoghaire, then drive down through Eire to Cork ( with a few days B&B) then sail to Roscoff.  But the itinerary didn't work for what we want to do.
So we're off to Portsmouth in the morning early.

If you’re taking the M4 watch your speed they really like to get you on that road. And good luck.

I can’t really help it.   At least it better than after sales questions being deleted. Like today I asked if my battery was in warranty and the post got deleted.

It's not our customary route, but we have 12 hours to do a 6 hour journey, So no rush. A couple of touristy stops on the way south.

That’s a nice bit of leeway. The FIL used to live near Bridgend so we’ve made the trip there many times. Leave early, spend the day and get home late.

I've made a note to fill the tank in Pompey before embarkation. Fuel strikes in France apparently.

Limited rationing.  We should be able to do most of our travelling in France on one tankful, as the car does 60 MPG cruising.  So one top-up should suffice.

When I fill the tank to the brim the autonomy (range) indicator logs about  800 miles. But I reckon I could exceed that. We should have enough.
