Stone Stacks and Sunsets

      1 Comment on Stone Stacks and Sunsets

I thought I’d share with you some of the creative stone stacks that people have created on the beach near the campsite. These have been here for all the time we’ve been here, although some smaller ones come and go and these get embellished slightly as the days go past, including by me as I walk past. I enjoy coming… Read more »

Sorry to Say, but it’s Blue Sky Week

      1 Comment on Sorry to Say, but it’s Blue Sky Week

As George Formby would have said – ‘turned out nice again’. After the slightly unsettled period things have calmed down and we’ve had a couple of lovely blue sky days. Yesterday we managed to get out for a decent hike up into the hills. It’s a bit challenging around here trying to find where the foot paths are. This side… Read more »

Out for a walk today, through something like the land that time forgot. I was waiting for the Velociraptors to be chased over the hill by a T-Rex, but it didn’t happen. Last nights winds were curios, it was alternating between calm period, and then this almighty rush of wind that literally shook the van from side to side. I… Read more »

The view out the bedroom window this morning. As Dorothy once said, ‘I don’t think we are in Kansas anymore Toto’. It certainly was a windy night, and we did manage to pick a rather exposed spot, but there you go. Not been outside yet to see if the paint is still on the van but as it’s rocky outside,… Read more »
