Goodness what a time.

It has been a little while since the last entry to the Blog, and it has been a real busy period indeed, flitting around some wonderful places north and south with dare I admit it a Twitch! so between Burton Mere, Leighton Moss Strawberry Banks and north Wales it was hectic to say the least.

So what on earth was achieved with this frenetic rush around? I shall show you with a little blurd for each picture. and even might have do a part two to ensure you get the full monty!

A blast from the past that never got blogged.

A fantastic find which thankfully stayed for the masses, A first in the UK for me so I was welled pleased to say the least.

As the following one or two might attest to !
