Tory Tractors (for Bigmuz7)

Last week we did Inishtrahull, so this week we turned west instead and made the 40Nm run to Tory Island into a brisk Westerly. Less than a mile of viz meant that the plotters were our Friends. A couple of pints/lunch, a good chat with the locals and a walk to Dún Balor later, we "surfed" home to the calmer waters of the Swilly. Nice day.

Some more tractors for Bigmuz7 and a coupla ould pics for the rest of yis.

I'm gonna say Dexter

Willk,

Is this a bit like that odd perversion - wreck hunting - but on land, looking for dead tractors?
