Off to Le Mans in a couple of hours. Surprised to find that this will be the 14th time (in a row) I will be taking the Morgan

@Steve If you have problems getting in/out a Morgan you'll probably be posting the same issue on your next low car, be sensible and get a car that does your back a favour.

He's right. Look at Abarth 500....terrific fun and the seats are very comfortable. Easy entry. Great car

From Ludlow down the beautiful Wye valley - lunch at book town - bought two books, then on to Tenby.

Took some recovering after reading Casino Royale where Bond was strapped naked to a chair with a hole in it and then he was whacked on his test.....



Meeting Linmog tomorrow.

Living i Bergen, Norway. Last week The Norwegian Morgan Club celebrated it's 25 year anniversary. Parade in Oslo's main street, reception in the garden of The British Embassy, then a formal dinner in a restaurant near the Holmenkollen ski jump. Consequently, a fellow morganeer and I decided to take the 450 km journey with my Lady M. Starting out from Bergen going eastwards along the fjords, climbing into the mounains. In the evening reaching my friend's chalet deep in the mountans midway to Oslo. A couple of beers in the sunset, then staying overnight. Next morning going down from the mountains, to the less dramatic landscape in the eastern part approaching Oslo. Quick car wash at a gas station, then the parade etc. Returning to Bergen the next day. Pure magic - early summer with green foliage and birds everywhere in the lowlands, late spring in the mountains with flowing rivers and patches of melting snow, the Hardangerjøkelen glacier visible far away. Blazing sun, long and winding roads, blue fjords welcoming us when we approached Bergen again. Life is good.

Around 1,000 miles through France.

One ripped off number plate plinth.
One faulty fuel gauge.
One faulty indicator.
One smashed headlamp.
Two lost bonnet corners.

.........so far.

Oh the joys of Morganeering

I hope you had a good holiday apart from the happenings and that they can be rectified for reasonable cost.

Thanks Richard, it has been great fun. Seven Fellmog Morgans snaking down from Saint Malo to Santander and despite stories of storms lashing France we haven't met one. The minor Morgan ailments are all part of the experience, however unwelcome.
