Yesterday out in the snow here talking one of the grandkids* out for a picnic in the van - fresh cooked bacon sandwiches were on the menu...

Then some sledging and a walk around, followed by a cup of tea and a biscuit. Simple things bring great pleasure.

* we all live in the same house, plus we are not under lockdown per the UK.

A spot the difference competition.

View from Greenwich Park car park: 1970 and 2020.

Amazing.
Wish I’d bought a couple of docklands slums in 1970 :)

Looks like it to me, obviously South London is so bad these days that the occupants have to make “essential” journeys to civilisation. Probably a shortage of eggs again.

This is the reason I’ve ordered a Candy White 4M.
Your Cali is absolutely perfect.
Steel wheels look great, I’ve ordered some Tomahawk Outlaws in 17” coupled with BFG.
The black edging with California and edition I’m guessing is a special black edition ?

Thank you. The steel wheels are mounted with winter tyres, I have separate 17" alloys for the summer. Usually I swap them over myself at the right time. Also, I take the awning off for the winter so that is missing in the photo.
AFAIK the 'Edition' was a configuration/special in Europe (maybe not all, but certainly CH and AT) and was a bundle of 'extras' at a slightly lower price. You see them often here in Switzerland so it must have been a good deal! I don't think I could call the 'Edition' up on the UK configurator when I was cross-checking before we bought it.
The 4M is great at the moment as we have snow, no problems with the slushy or icy conditions on hills so far - but this is also a factor of winter tyres for sure. Coming from the UK I never believed in the winter tyre thing, but having lived here 20 years now I don't understand how you could not have a set!
