Luton-Wardown parkrun.

Another beautiful crisp English morning for Luton Wardown parkrun. Three and a bit laps around a stunning park and lake. We don't usually like having to do laps, but the scenery was so nice this morning it didn't bother us at all.
Afterwards, a coffee at the local cricket club where everyone had to take their shoes off before entering.

Who can read this?

Yesterday at Bletchley Park I had a play with a morse key in the radio room. It's been 35 years since I last sent any morse code and it was a lot of fun.

So, who can decipher this message?

Bletchley Park.

Yesterday we had an amazing visit to Bletchley Park where during WW II, British and Polish codebreakers broke the unbreakable German cipher machine the Enigma.

It was very interesting, especially because, during the war, my mum served in the Australian Army as part of the Special Wireless Group, intercepting Japanese signal traffic and passing it on to the codebreakers.

The Enigma machine was first developed by the Germans in the 1920's and I remember during my time in the navy, using Top Secret cryptographic machines that were modeled on Enigma up until the early 1980's.

Another interesting visual day trip thanks to your excellent pictures and words.

Isn't it fascinating? We loved it and spent a lot of time there

How interesting that would be. I loved the series on ABC.

I'd love to do this!

Just watched the movie based on the story. Brilliant but such a sad ending.

Harpenden, England.

We're now in the town of Harpenden looking after two beautiful dogs Dexter and Summer while their owners are surfing in the Canary Islands.

It was a bit chilly and foggy for our walk this morning but we came across some horses and as usual, the English countryside was glorious.

We met Peter and Kaye on our very first cruise last year and became good friends. It was great to catch up with them for lunch yesterday, not only to see them again but to celebrate Pete's very last day in the Royal Air Force after 35 years and 10 months. Hope to catch up again soon. ... See MoreSee Less
