A couple of my friends were bought white water rafting experience tickets for Xmas, so a few weeks ago they decided to use them and add on a few liggers e.g. me :]
All kitted up and ready to go!
Why I look half the size of the others in this picture I'm not quite sure, although notice I'm the only one who has any slack meterial around the waist.
(Roy: stop holding in your stomach and pushing out your chest; you're not fooling anyone :0)
Having never done this before, I was quite nervous to start with, but after the first couple of rapids I was soon loving it
On the windowsill of the rafting place, I spotted this amazing coloured moth
The weather was dull the next day, so we went on a low-level walk
Bilberries were growing in abundance, so I was scoffing them on the way round
It's always the ones at the back that get eaten alive first ya know
Foxglove AKA Digitalis, although they look pretty analogue to me :]
Two jet fighters practicing a dogfight through the valleys
Woof, bark, growl, snarl... NO, not that kind of dog fight!
Spinning the camera while taking a shot gives a great effect

The walk ends at a large scenic lake
Lily pads on a rainy pond
Then the pub for tea...
So that's why it's called Red Snapper - wow!
...and to finish, a late night card / drinking session.
Maybe there's a decent hand at the bottom of my whiskey glass..? Nope! :
See ya all next week - Take care folks x
Today, I'm Most Angry About: Arriving at work this morning and realising I'd left my phone at home; especially after yesterday when I'd forgotten both my phone AND iPod! GRRR

Today's Top Tip: Single men: About this time of year, it's better to try and cop off with girls called Holly, Carol or Noelle; They are likely to have a birthday around Christmas, by which time (let's face it) the initial passion would have died down and you'd have probably split up, thereby saving money on Christmas AND birthday presents!
