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.

Feeling a bit seedy

Nell and I went for a walk this morning. It was a gorgeous day but we ended up by not going very far. The Crooked Man had gone out and I was expecting a parcel delivery. Plus, I was finding it hard going. Not feeling on top of my game right now. Possibly a touch of “Keto Flu”? I’d like to think so, but honestly haven’t been working hard enough at it to have gotContinue readingFeeling a bit seedy

An interesting morning. Up and at ’em we went to Intermarché to fuel up and to buy some food for when we arrive home. They were queuing outside the door for what appeared to be controlled entry. There were queues for fuel too. “We’re not that desperate” we said and set off for home. It… Continue reading October 29, 2020 at 10:24AM
