I don't just drive a bloody shuttle ya know! I do have a car, contrary to popular belief.

Any road, ya can knock 5 miles off that as I  live North of Lewes. Besides I've  gorra 700 mile charging lead, so there!

Why do I  get the feeling I'm  not wanted, North of the Thames?

Far from it, I can assure you. It's  called keeping one step ahead of the law.

Today the sun shone so I went out to Whaligoe on the East Coast of Caithness to take a few pictures. Here's a starter for ten - more to follow tomorrow:

That super picture is a 'strata' starter for ten. Thanks for the Watten pics mate. Yes, Watten is a bit bleak but that has it's beauty - like some of the fens etc.

I agree. I do like ‘bleak’. I like to pop over the border to the Lincolnshire fens in the winter and admire the wide open fields and the big skies. Big romantic at heart!

Hills and woods are the places that elicit emotion from me.... sometimes wonder why I'm living in the fens!  But there again, family takes precedence over landscape...

Here are a few more of my efforts from yesterday. I timed it wrongly and the sun was casting a deep shadow over the Whaligoe Cove but I managed to get a few shots in. If you look closely, you can see two tourists on the steps and a workman in high-vis trousers soing some repairs. 

 

A house with a view - the former Whaligoe mill.

The bottom of the falls.

For scale and prespective, here is a shot of the steps with three people on them. Can you see them? [Clue: Two by the wall at the top and workman doing repairs part-way down]

The bottom of the steps.

And finally, the tourists chatting to the workman .

I'm just grateful that I have good enough health to enjoy any landscape. These last couple of weeks I done several Attenborough rides, Stoodley Pike walk and Gibsons Mill ( both North Yorkshire). And just as much pleasure walking over Sharp Hill to Wheatcrofts.

I think my family has become my landscape, and vice versa.

PS: in the fens, do you get the corncrakes in the evening? - an abiding memory of Suffolk/Norfolk, as I recall.
