ABOUT ME

I live in a camper van with a couple of West Highland Terriers for company.
My passion is photography but it is a work in progress.
I am always willing to share what knowledge I have and can be contacted through the comments on this post or e-mail ADRIAN

SPARKLING BRIGHT (10/11/09)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA    ALL TIDY..............Cleaned and polished.

We are in Princetown, a small town of no particular merit or appeal situated in a very beautiful area, the Dartmoor National Park. Maps will follow on the next post when I get organised.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA It has two dominating features the TV mast.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA    And the prison. The Prison was originally built to contain Americans from the War of Independence and French from the Napoleonic Wars. After these altercations were brought to a conclusion it was empty for a while then filled with indigenous miscreants. The latter occupying it to this day.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA   CARRION CROW........I hope! Was here to greet us and was unafraid of us both. Hopping around the van for some ten minutes while we filled the water tank.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA One of three pubs, this is the earliest dating from 1795. We are staying in it's car park so I expect  to carry out some research into the quality of it's wares.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA MIRROR IMAGE.....No not really, Molly has found a relation.

That's all, the forecast isn't looking good for tomorrow but time will tell.

  1. I love the interior of the van - very swish ... you are certainly seeing a lot of the countryside on your travels !!

  6. Adrian I am going out on a limb and say I think the bird is a Jackdaw although I cannot see any grey but the size and eye says Jackdaw to me....but I am not very good myself so wait till someone else confirms a Crow or Jackdaw.
    I was in Princtown the back end of summer and bird wise we did very poorly as we were looking for Whinchats but it was a bit latish in the season for them. Well done with the mop and brush.
