Well we had a fairly traditional Christmas day, but did take my youngest for his first caving trip (to OFD) a few days before; he's since had his 2nd trip (to Sandford Levy).

Spent it in quarantine, entire family has COVID (3 triple jabbed, 2 double btw).
Except for me, I'm in quarantine because I've entered Germany from the UK. Thanks Santa  :'(

We walked down Penny Lane. There were lots of barber's shops, but no firemen.

Walked around Austwick and Feizor, Pegasus rode.  Then commenced the more traditional eating loads, drinking loads and watching telly for the next 15 hours.  We were down from six to three due to covid in one branch of the family.  Caving had to wait until the 27th.

I played with my grandson's trains. To simulate caving we put two tunnels together.

Yep...
Quick Nookey to Red Door through trip between turkey courses on Christmas Day so Sas could try out her new light.  A harness after a large dinner is less comfortable than normal. 





Love this shot...
Taken outside the entrance on the boulder beach after dark.  I'll be using this one in the future to convince people there are big bits of cave on Portland!  All that lot fell off the cliff in 2014.
