The funny things you see when you're on a run

This morning when I was out I was passed by a car full of nuns and then by a man riding a massive penny farthing. Anyone else seen anything startling, funny or interesting while they are out and about?

Nothing like that! It sounds like you live in an interesting place! I've just seen wildlife mainly... Birds, flowers, crazy dogs etc... I'll keep a look out for nuns now though 😋

I saw two Great Danes standing on a column once. They were like statues and it was so funny. No idea what they were doing there. I couldn't get my phone out quick enough to take a photo ☹️

I saw a man on skis the other day, he was skiing along the tow path! Never seen anything like these, they had little wheels at each end! Everyone was staring!

That made me giggle! Nothing too funny but I have seen an upside down rainbow (I ended up looking it up called a circumzenithal or Bravais arc) and some shooting stars! Will be on the lookout for rogue nuns now though...!

I forgot to say that just before the nuns I was passed by a vicar. I guess it was Sunday ;)

Shooting stars are pretty cool though!

A naked swimmer... he was standing on the bank on a pier-thingy, stark bollock naked, looking straight ahead and meditating (possibly), then he dived in and started swimming up and down. I nearly went back to check (well, he might have needed help) but I didn't speak the language and there are only so many hand signals you can make...

You guys are going to think I'm hallucinating or living in some kind of Victorian throw back town but I saw another Penny Farthing rider yesterday morning on my ride into work. I think it was a different one as it seemed smaller and the rider seemed older. Maybe it's a Suffolk thing....
