I've recently acquired a new phone (Nokia 5800, if that means anything to you) - primarily in order to have the internet in my pocket, but it also has the benefit of GPS. I've downloaded a handy application that tracks a route and then you can upload it to the internet, and display it on GoogleMaps. When we took a walk through Hyde Park yesterday to go to the V&A, it seemed like a good time to test this out. Here's the result:
Isn't that cute? It didn't quite get the beginning of our walk (I spent a few minutes waving the phone in the air, trying to get a GPS signal) but once it got going, it made a pretty good record of where we went, even down to crossing the courtyard at the V&A to go to the cafe!!
I've already told you a little about our time at the gallery. On our way there, in the park, I had plenty of opportunity to practise my bird photography with a variety of the local wildlife:
And a couple of action shots of dogs:
P.S. I woke up this morning distinctly feverish, and it's raining, so further adventures are on hold for the moment.
