One good turn

No photos, no video, and only three people outside the Greyhound, but it was a good one. Not perfect; not round in one, but definitely my best yet, because I got completely clear of the bridgehole before I even needed to think about reversing. In fact, it almost came round - I was willing it to, and a little bit more power probably would have done it. But even though it was pretty much at the last second I flung it into reverse, there was no head-on impact, but more of a glancing sideswipe - it was that nearly round. The briefest of reverses, then round she came into the stoplock. I know now that it is possible, and one day I will do it.
