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

WE’VE MOVED. (22/08/12)

First thing this morning I moved the van five miles…..less as the crow flies but that is irrelevant as the camper can’t fly. Even if it could I would hope that it would fly more directly than the crow. We are still just outside Darlington but in a much more rural environment.

Before we left I took the dogs for a last look at the Tees……..

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Two slugs eating what looks like bath sealant. it was much softer. I haven’t a clue what it is but it didn’t smell…I resisted the impulse to taste it.

P8223182_3_4_5_6_tonemapped_edited-1 This is an arable farm. The barley and oilseed rape are harvested. They are happy with the barley but the rape was only middling. The wheat is ready but too wet so another days sunshine is required before they can start combining it.

The winning one-liner from the Edinburgh Festival came from Stewart Francis; “You know who really gives kids a bad name? Posh and Becks”. I still like Steven Wright’s little gem; “What’s another name for a thesaurus?”

Let us hope for another good day tomorrow.

  1. Nice to see you back on the road again, but, 5 miles, isn't very long! Ah, it must feel good though.

  3. A nice sunny day at last Adrian?

    Looks like you've picked a grand spot there, with those stunning views over the farmland? The ground looks a bit 'heavy'!!...[;o)

  4. It's clay here trevor. It seems fine. A two mile round trip for the paper. I'll not bother as tomorrow it will be fuller than usual of that daft bugger prince Harry.

  5. More rural, that would suit me nicely. It looks just the job. It's starting to look a bit too autumnal though!

    As I haven't commented for a week or two I was going to comment on your last post too but although I read it all I barely understood a word and haven't a clue what it was about. I don't suppose even that thesaurus would help me!

    1. I suspect snailswanderings are less random than mine.

  7. That's really a lot of fun. It may be close but it's also a nice change. Love your hop skip and jumps. Plus your snail pics are a treat. I don't get to see them too often. Hope you meet some interesting people in your new spot:)

  8. Your new place looks to be rather quiet. Probably a good place for dogs. And oh ya good you took the dogs for a walk before you left the old place because you got some excellent photos.

  12. Ah now I'm catching up and catching on. Yesterday Anna was regaling me with Adrianisms. Anna is an avid follower and commenter whose words never appear on your blog. If it wasn't for the fact that I enjoy your photos I'd never have to read your posts. Posh an Becks....thesaurus.......
