Jay's pinstriping / "kustom painting" - learning in progress

Image
Jędrek vel. Jay started playing around with a thing called "kustom paint" which fits in to the Kustom Kulture movement. Click here for more reference :)

Quite interesting, good-looking and... very absorbing. Both time- and space-wise. We are having more and more paints and chunks of painted wood around ;))

Here are some samples, attempts of his new hobby:









Some of the nice sneak peeks:






Pretty cool, innit?^^

Happy travels - Exmoor's coast!

Image
For a long weekend, here: 27-29.05, we went to the Exmoor National Park, in north Devon:





On the way, we gave a lift to the friend's family to the Bristol airport and carried on towards the seaside. After in 2/3s of the way we gave up and took a 'quick' 3 hours nap, for it was 6am :D 
Breakfast on the hill's slope:




First place visited - Woody Bay (right past the Lee Abbey Devon):



(Yeah, I learned how to embed a map directly, woohoo ;) )
Right, so we just spent an afternoon there, as it started raining at some point. Although it was a rocky-beach, rather shallow waters for quite a distance from the shore, still v. pleasant and, most importantly for us at the time, dog-friendly :)









In search for the place to settle overnight we found this beach, at Hele Bay, where we decided to stay on a view point with car park and in the morning went for a nice walk on and around the hill on which there's one of the earliest country leisure trails in England:





From the nature trail…

Gloucestershire motorbike rides!

We went for a ride on Saturday, one of those that we just jump on a bike and head towards some, previously determined, point but being more focused on a trip itself rather than its destination.

Actually we went to Swindon to pop over into the Outdoors store and motorcycle outlet, for we need some equipment for our July's bike-trip to Northern Spain (Basque country hopefully). Unsuccessful shopping it was, unlike the bike ride itself ;)
So this time we somehow came across, in the middle of 'nowhere' (I would say that, without remorse), an event which happened to be a Hot-Rod cars & motorcycles local festival. There, unexpectedly, we got to see the guy who built his unique motorbike e.g. from a pair of aircraft cylinders :O The Flying Millyard it is called, just stunning and unique on the world's scale:

And he was one of the bunch of people who also came along to show off and gaze at others motorbikes and cars :D Incredible.
