Wheels and Windmills

Today was the perfect day for an autumn bike ride as the weather was dry and sunny.  We set off early to avoid the drivers heading out for pub lunches but came across plenty of other fellow cyclists (most of them heading in the opposite direction to ourselves, for some reason).

The highlight of the ride though was cycling past Jonathan Creek's windmill (well, Shipley Windmill in West Sussex, which was used in the filming of the series as this was Jonathan's home).

At first it was cheekily peeping out above some trees in the distance ...

And then we got closer

I think windmills are lovely, and this one is no exception.  But we were a little disappointed to see that it wasn't white anymore and in need of a bit of a clean.

Even so, its a great looking windmill
