Yer Report

Never been to Brighton, but once spent a miserable long night
in the cold wet sands of Weymouth
in what coulda passed for a hobo jungle
on my way to Torquay.

Enjoying yer trip report muchly
brings out the memories
and the voyeur in me.

Dank U wel, GanjaMan!

Sidhe, these are great pix! Thanks for sharing. I even printed out the one entitled smoke to show my wife that I'm not the only weirdo who shoots his stash.

The pipe reminded me of one I had decades ago. Thought brass was the only way to go at the time. Wood was so declassee.

I stayed on a houseboat on the Singelgracht last trip, along the Nicolaas Witsenkade, east of the Heineken Experience. Nice area, good access to everything.

Have fun!

This father and son adventure happened in March 2004. My son and I have a history of taking roadtrips together, back since I flew home with him for the holidays when he was 6 months old. But prior to the A'dam trek, we hadn't done much roadtripping in years. This trip was a great time to hang out an...
