treefeedeefey - where is it you reside again?
Near Kirkcudbright in SW Scotland.
No way!! I love coo-coo-bree, I was there a coupla times last October, it really is amazing - love it! Just beautiful and stunning! Scotland is such a small world, you were probably attending the same wedding I was!
Well, if I was, I must've been drunk at the time cos I didn't notice you.
Ah-ha! The green shoots of a cunning plan are beginning to sprout:A certain RR-er of my acquaintance - no names, but he was one of my 3 Best Men (actually 2 Best Men and a Best Bird!) when I got married - has a rather cosy seaside bolt-hole not too far round the coast from there.RR Social #3, anyone??
Don't come just yet though as it's currently puring with rain EVERY day.
Magical...and I presume the oblique reference to Season of the Witch was deliberate? Which got me thinkin' - did Donovan & Lulu start the trend of one word monikers? Are they to blame for Gabrielle, Dido, Adele & Duffy?@BM - Thanks for the pronunciation lesson - even trickier than Cholmondley. Guess you folks up north are looking forward to global warming, but maybe not the rising sea levels, eh TFD?
What about Leadbelly?
P.S. ghe - luckily the west of Scotland landmass is rising...it's more people in east Anglia who need to worry as they are sinking, as well as being low already. Topographically, that is.
I'm owning up to being Darceysdad's friend (and job-share Best Man) who has a bolt hole near to coo-coo-bree (Southerness to be precise - I assume you know where that is). So is that the Isle of Whithorn on the horizon behind you are am I looking the wrong way?
ho ho - the Isle of Whithorn isn't really an island...the one behind me is Little Ross Island at the southern end of Kirkcudbright Bay - it's got a lighthouse on it which you can just see. Yes, I know where Southerness is! Is it fun being a jobshare best man?
Yes, I know the 'Isle' of Whithorn isn't an island (I've got some nice photos from when we went there last spring). I just thought that the rest of the peninsula might be beyond the horizon, but I think I know now of what island you're talking.Being a job-share Best Man is a bit confusing (especially since one of the Men was a woman) but on the other hand the responsibilities get shared about....
TFD.. think you may be right about us worrying here in east anglia about the water levels, the smallest amount of rain and the roads turn into extra Norfolk broads,,all in all not such a bad thing if you like boating..and the detours I then take while doing my job gives me more time to listen to music..so all good.
I've spent more time with maps spread out this week, it's nice to know where we all are. That's a lovely looking spot, probably gets the odd chilly breeze I suspect?
No, the prevailing wind is from the west and we have a goodish cliff sheltering us from that...the camera is pointing south.
I'd love to go down that way again, see you Saturday - about three- for a spot of afternoon tea on the lawn?
Yeah, right - have you seen the weather forecast? I'll be the one indoors in the warm.
