English Shores and walks
When I travel I think a lot. About why we do things, both simple and complex. Here are some photos of some places I walked whilst in England
It funny how just the simple act of "walking" can make you think....
Walking and bird watching are very popular in England for a number of reasons.
Its a great excuse for a walk and it makes you stop and search for birds, which means you have to really look at everything...
I makes you appreciate the environment, and leads to healthy discussion about global warming, manmade impacts and the like..
Sometimes it makes you appreciate the smell of salt air, of farmers ploughing fields, and of good friends
Who are always in search of that something over the horizon...
And coming back to the Black Dog Inn for a pint in front of the coal fire!
A sincere "thank you" to Jim, Pam and Ken who put up with me almost every year and show me sights I will never forget.
Pam has broken her knee cap in a fall and I wish her a speedy recovery. Also a HUGE "thank you" to Worzel and Trudy for providing accommodation during the volcanic eruption and getting me to the airport.
Lastly a BIG "thank you" to the people I met, will never know, yet extended me every courtesy at every opportunity.. from the best pies shop in the world- Mables Pies, to even the co-op staff.... Lets not forget the Black Dog Inn- superb food, the best ales and friendly service..I hope to get back to Shetland soon too!
Heres to the next beer on Askam Pier!
