I’ve nothing much to show for today but as you get what I get here goes.
We had a good if misty walk up the hill this morning. Nothing to show for it but It restored my sanity after what sounded like a riot on the campsite last night but was only the screaming of excited children and their equally over enthusiastic parents.
Thrift used to be on Threepenny Bit coins. It was a long time ago when money was real stuff and worth something. When I was very small and visited the seaside I used to catch tiny shore crabs and for some inexplicable reason they reminded me of Threepenny bits.
I decided to recapture the magic of days long gone and started raking about in the seaweed on the waterline. Ten minutes I was at it and then a crab found me.
I popped it on a piece of weed on a rock. I thought it would look better in it’s own environment. It kept escaping so I took it a bit further inland and popped it on the grass. This is about as big as the palm of my hand so rather larger than I’d been aiming for. This is it advancing on the lens hood. It’s now back in the sea.
It’s been a showery afternoon and heavy rain is forecast for tomorrow. I need some shopping so will probably drive up to Kinlochleven and raid the CO-OP. I may even have a wander round and see what the town has to offer.
Have a good week.
