Lovely evening and because I have my copy of PSE on a different laptop, these are all without any PP. Took these pictures on the breakwater this evening.

KOKO (the former Camden Palace) was packed last night. Reference was made by the band to the huge numbers on the manager's guest list and I do wonder if the capacity of 1410 was stretched - it certainly felt very full. Or perhaps middle aged men take up more space, the crowd was mostly guys my age.
They started with "Put Your Hand Inside The Puppet Head", followed with "Particle Man" and we were away. As energetic as you'd expect. The new stuff sounds good. They are running an offer on the website to download the new album for $9.99. The relase date is Monday but by pre-ordering you get four advance tracks so the real nerds sang along anyway. Guilty m'lud. A personal favourite was "Turn Around" which I suspect isn't always on the live set.
Had to leave just before the end to catch the last train west but, overall, great dad/daughter bonding time. We tried photos with little success but also tried to film with slightly better results. We have a couple of songs but the files are too big for here. TMBG play Latitude in Suffolk today - albeit criminally low down on the bill. Sky Arts are covering the festival though the best we can probably hope for is a quick "Birdhouse" in the highlights programme.

And yesterday she finished! It was a pleasure to walk the final 8 miles from Swanage to Poole with her and a band of supporters yesterday and to take some pictures along the way.
No PP done on any of the pictures yet, just wanted to whack them up here.
Start of the last leg with her support crew.
The last temptation of Natalie? Inviting looking deckchairs on Swanage beach.
Natalie walked alone for 9 days of the challenge.
For the last leg a dozen others joined her for the full eight miles.
The final few steps of a two mile finish across the sand of Studland beach.
