The wind catcher

It’s a really cool bit of energy-saving engineering: a megalithic-scale metal sarsen, catching through its louvres the wind that whips across Dunstable Downs, which then travels underground to cool the glass-fronted visitor centre in summer and warm it in winter.

R was on good form after I got some lentil soup in her, before I persuaded her on a wee jolly up there to take in the view. She walked surprisingly far and really enjoyed herself.

She enjoyed some of the big batch of *good* (see previous entry) beetroot falafel when we got back.

Getting ready for a week of hols in (what looks to be) sunny Dorset from tomorrow. Every other holiday has been thwarted this year, so I can’t wait for this one :-D
