A few Shots from Tobermory this weekend...

Another gorgeous few days this weekend. Cool and crisp. The water is up to a baulmy 42F or so. Sorry for the lack of action shots... there's never anyone around!

I noticed that you had posted a shot of a beaver elsewhere PT, so I thought I should put up something as well!

LOL... Only in his mind... He's a Siberian Husky... Loves harrassing the critters up there, which has resulted in my becoming fairly adept at removing porcupine quills! We have gone from a three-dog home to one in the past 18 months (due to old age) so he's a lonely beast these days...

They pretty much let anyone move over here Vince. We always need loggers, miners, igloo builders...

Seriously, there is a real shortage of trades people here these days. As a result, we are importing many from eastern Europe and elsewhere.

The areas where PT and I are taking pictures are about 2000 km apart, and there's a whole lot of nuttin in between. One of the things that I noticed about most of the rib.net pics posted here is the amount of boat traffic and "civilization" in the background. Of course, you guys have been building stuff for a little longer than we have.... And you have twice the population in a fraction of the space...

Mind you, there appear to be some beautiful areas there. I was last in Britain when I was 13, and since joining Rib.net I have developed a bit of a desire to visit...

I agree, britain is a lovely place, its just that the gov is way out of line. Its being spoilt by a whole load of red tape that we are all tangled up in and tripping over. In the paper today, it says now a ban for smoking in your own home is coming! I personaly dont smoke, but that is going too far!
Sorry for going off-thread, Stoo, everyone that owns a legit business here might be feeling the same way! (imho, of course)
Time for some quality me-time, now where's me fishin rod?
Nice pics, keep them coming!

Fortunately, governments change! Although around here, the rule-of-thumb is that the only government worse than the current one... is the next one!

Perhaps a nice coupe de tate led by a few guys in RIBS charging up the Thames would be in order!

Trust me, we've had our share of crappy, meddling, soviet wannnabe governments as well (though things have been looking a little brighter for the past year or so, but I won't get into that). My cousins who live here in Winnipeg spent a week or so in London last month, and absolutely loved the city and the people. Their only caveat was that they found the accomodations, restaurants & such to be quite expensive.
