Brilliant gurnard looking forward to your next adventure I admire any stone work even dry stone walling but the stone mason takes it such skill.

Cheers

One of the best set of adventure pics from you so far Gurnard... until the next one!

I was in the dentist waiting room the other day scrolling through them full screen on my phone and noticed the woman in the seat next to me catching a crafty glance. I reckon it was about the point of your alluring pic against the rock with the sheep's head she took a special interest... I noted she seemed to have all her own teeth and a good bit of life left in her so wondered about passing on an intro.

Thanks again for dropping by Chris and Jeff .. you can really see the love and craftsmanship that went into building these places. Barrat’s the builder doesn’t do that now

Tinker hole is right here ..just watch the rocks at the approaches Breezeblock



Aww..Fenlander..if she was interested in the sheep’s head.. she would have fallen in love with my latest find on Rona .. a huge vertebrae from a whale..and what I think is a jaw bone. Almost as good as finding an elephants tusk.. I can carve it into all sorts of scrimshaw ornaments. The ruler is 1 meter..to give an idea of size..I brought them home. Its my trophy for completing the Skye adventure..coming soon. Its a good un too.

I have to be very careful here Jeff... bearing in mind I have a Mrs who last year said "if you like the Aerotec so much why not buy a new one" and this year "that Suzuki looks good (spec wise, she's not that shallow) we should buy one"... you don't mess with an attitude like that.

So I was just thinking of Gurnard in case he found himself way south down the east coast and drifting up the Nene... woman in every port and all that!
