30 Days WIld: Day 4

Another busy day today.

Luckily after supper the weather was good and the tide, a spring tide, was out – so we donned our wellies and grabbed the dog and went out to enjoy ourselves for an hour.

Nell found a bone. I’m pretty sure it’s a cervical vertebra but probably somebody will be along to put me right on that one

What do you suppose it belonged to?

We walked along the dry sand to The Ouse (no, not that one), to look for seals. There were none, though we could hear some distant ones singing. What we did see was a cloud of Terns, a nesting colony over at Elsness. We spent some time enjoying them.

Then we walked along The Ouse and down to the edge of the sea, where we were hypnotised by the encroaching water that seemed to be approaching at an amazing speed. As Mr L pointe dout, the tide was a long way out and had yet to come a long way in, being a spring tide. It has to rush!

I really am a poor blogger these days, aren’t I? Sorry. The notion that I would keep a Nature Diary here soon fell by the wayside. A pity, that. Perhaps I will try again next year, The thing is, we packed ourselves up and wandered off in the van again and when we came back we were, for various reasons, at a low ebb. Energy has been lacking and especially the mental variety. I amContinue readingHot, hot, hot



Having chosen to live in France, I try hard to live French. I really do not want to be that Brit – the one that moans how they can’t get such-and such in France or that some-other from the UK is better… Certainly, in my humble Brit opinion, there is so much here that is better than back in Blighty. Bread and butter for one two things, for instance. However, I do have a beef:Continue readingB-B-B-B-B-Bovril

It’s coming…

We are getting ever closer to our new van. It is supposedly 13 days away. I say “supposedly” because we have been here before and I shall not quickly forget the horrors of last year when Mr Snail had to stay near Paris for several nights after travelling up on the train at 6am and… Continue reading It’s coming…

Well, that was unexpected…

Well, that was unexpected…

I was confiding that Heidi’s days with us are numbered, we had picked out our new van and that Mr Snail was taking her to Cognac to get a PX price… Things did not go to plan. Heidi was looking gorgeous, considering her age, and we both agreed that the fact that they had asked… Continue reading Well, that was unexpected…
