Radio Car Travelogue 1 - 5 June 2009


After a fabulous weekend of sunshine, Monday starts with this sunrise behind the cathedral spire. This is the view from our second floor office window! My job today, to meet Hooky the one year old black labrador that's just joined the Norfolk Fire & Rescue Service. When fully trained by his owner, Steve Polley, Hooky will work with the Urban Search & Rescue Team tracing people who might be buried or hidden from view. Young and impetuous, when I met him he had my headphones and glasses off with one swipe of his paw! Bless him. Oh! If you're wondering about the name Hooky rather than Sparky ? His tail's got a kink in it so it looks like a hook!!!!!

Tuesday and another marvellous sunrise. Before I set off I remembered that I haven't shown you an up to date photo of the radio car. 9see previous Travelogue) It's not been sprayed white - it's a plastic coating! Then it's off to Mundesley to meet Richard May pictured here in the watchtower. He started Coastwatch in 1995 and now has 50 members who voluntarily keep an eye on our coastal waters and report anything untoward for the Coastguard to follow up. Here's the view from the beech looking up at the watchtower. Whilst we were waiting to go on air a kestrel came and hovered just near the window so I couldn't resist taking this shot!

Thursday and it's Polling Day for County Council and Euro elections. I went to possibly the smallest Polling Station at Silver Farm in Besthorpe. Then it was just up the road on the busy A11 to meet up with Phil Dingle at the BP station. Prices are still steadily rising but with many people choosing to stay in this country for their holidays, consumption is also on the up. For Phil that was good news!

Is it really Friday already? My only visit today is to the home of David Freeman. He, wath many others, was involved with the nuclear tests on Christmas Island in the fifties. More than a thousand of them said that it made them ill because of the radiation exposure and the use of DDT. Today a high court judge will tell them if they can launch a full trial to get compensation. David wasn't too hopeful of winning though.
