Only here for the beer or a typical English Bank Holiday

Recommended Posts

Erik just said that my post over Berlin was like a typical German summer.

Well Erik, here is a shot typical of an English long week end, I don't know if it is still called a Bank Holiday over there.

This is how I always remember them.:(




Above is the AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) spotter plane scouring the A303 near Andover for drivers who may have had too much:o

Nicely done Martyn!  When I was in the UK it was still called a bank holiday, heck, here in the States it's called that.

Thanks Jack, I should have looked before as it is apparently still called a Bank Holiday in the UK. Down here it is called a Public Holiday. Maybe the Aussie hatred for the banks prompted a name change so as not to spoil the long week end. It is the Labour Day Holiday this week end which is why some rain has been forecast after 2 weeks of glorious late summer weather.


Many thanks for your interest and comments.
