In the brilliant mid-Winter,
Frosty wind, blue skies.

Review/notes: Out for the daily run (14 in a row) on a crisp and clear day with the temperature hovering around freezing and only a light breeze to threaten a real chill, I popped into the Crown as it was the only pub in the area not yet ticked off my list.  There were only two pumps to choose from but they were both great beers.  Since I was certain Doom Bar had already been a Daily Tipple, I took a punt on Butty Bach knowing that if it was already DT’ed it was only noon and I had plenty of time to find another drink for the day’s write-up.  Floral, fruity, dry and refreshing it was just what I needed before continuing on through the lakes of the Cotswold Water Parks.

I headed on to South Cerney for another Chippy Challenge entry and had to pause for a moment by a rubbish bin because I spotted the seal of the City of Atlanta on the side — or close enough as seen on this Atlanta bin:

Regardless, the run was grand and punctuated with a mid-run stop, a late run Proustian moment, and a snack at the end.
