Day #710 Title: Fyne Dining
Location: Chelmsford
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: Today was the last of my 40@40 events! I went with friend Glynis for a lovely seafood lunch at the local Loch Fyne restaurant in Chelmsford. It’s been there a while, I gather, but I only just discovered it a few weeks ago. The sun was out and although it was too cold to sit outside, I enjoyed the shadows on the steps, so this is my image for the day.

Day #705 Title: A Quiet Corner
Location: Oxted, Surrey
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I spent a very pleasant and leisurely lunch today with two fellow 365 folks, touchingthelight and Red Kite 2008. We arranged to meet up in Oxted, roughly midway between where the three of us live. The light wasn’t brilliant when we arrived, but we spent so long gassing in a quiet corner of the pub, plus feeding on an excellent menu, that by the time we decided to go for a little constitutional walk up the High Street, the drizzle had moved in and the light was terrible. I did manage to take this tableau of Ken and Caroline having a chat while I went to the bar. Another lovely 40@40 – just one to go now!

Day #703 Title: Profit Holes
Location: Waltham Bistro
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: Lunchtime today was the Christmas party of one of my networking groups. We had an excellent menu, topped off by one of my favourites for pud, Profit Holes, aka Profiteroles. Nothing to do with my 40@40 which I did with friends Rob & Sue this evening. But we were so busy chatting and having a good catch-up that I forgot to take any pictures. D’oh!

Day #702 Title: Cabaret!
Location: Roundhouse, Camden
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: After dodging torrential rain this afternoon travelling to and from a client meeting, I met up with good friend Julian for the evening. We had a lovey Thai dinner in Camden and then went to La Clique cabaret at The Roundhouse. An excellent show featuring jugglers, terrible magicians, acrobats and all-round performers. We weren’t really supposed to take pictures, but I managed to sneak this one quickly during the encoure. Another lovely 40@40 event.

Day #689 Title: Back At The Beeb
Location: White City, London
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I had a busy day of meetings in London today. One of which was lunch with some of my old Engineering buddies Malcolm, Chung and Paul from the BBC. It’s quite a while since I last set foot in Telly Centre, and it was good to see them and catch up with all their news. Hopefully it won’t be as long before we get together again. Another successful 40@40 achieved.

Day #685 Title: Wivenhoe Quay
Location: Fingringhoe
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: Having spent yesterday in Colchester, I stayed overnight with my parents in Wivenhoe and spent most of today with Mum whilst Dad was out playing the organ for various church services. The three of us also enjoyed a pleasant lunch out. It was supposed to rain, but Mum & I took advantage of the good weather and had a drive and little walk. This is one of my favourite views of Wivenhoe, taken from across the River Colne at Fingringhoe. A lovely spot to catch the warm evening light illuminating the quayside opposite. A nice way to spend another 40@40 day.

Day #684 Title: Coat Of Arms
Location: Colchester
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: I spent a lovely afternoon and evening with old school friend Karon, pottering about in Colchester where we both grew up. I haven’t been back for quite a while. We had a nice lunch and good old natter, before going back to her house to cook a tasty pasta bolognaise. It was good to see her family again too – and another enjoyable 40@40 day.
