At the bottom of each post there is the word "comments". If you click on it you will see comments made by followers, and if you follow the instructions you may also comment and I always welcome that. I have found many people overlook this part of the blog which is often more interesting than the original post!

Have started blogging through email link to the blog after loosing a whole post in the ether with this wretched BlogPress, but photos not possible as far as i can work out.

I am now on the pub's full WI fi so here goes.

Looking back to Sizewell

Thiny Hambling's sculpture in stainless steel - Aldeburgh

- Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone

I like the stainless steel scallop sculpture - and the alliteration of putting that in one string!

Looks as if you are having a fine time. I hope it continues for you.

You can post photos when you're emailing your post to Blogger. Just attach your photos to the email, and they will appear in the post. The only downside is that they will appear at the top of the post - you can't position them throughout the text.

Nice to see plenty of blue sky in those photies. Long may the fine weather continue.

I've just been plotting a coastal walk myself, but rather further north than you currently are...

Oddly, in view of the earlier discussion, sculptress Hambling's Christian name is Maggi:
clearly a moral there somewhere.
It's very famous - as is she, of course.
I'm a little curious as to why, with these smooth green swards and nigh-on perfect weather, camping is not more your first choice of abode.
Enlightenment , please!

Hello Conrad - re L Ossian affair. See your post of 3 January 2010 "Future Plans" and my comment regarding our meeting.

The Crow - hi Martha. Good to hear you are following. I thought that sculpture would appeal to your artistic leanings

Sir Hugh said...

Gayle - thanks for that. Will try.

Gimmer - I read up about Maggi before I set off. Quite a character. I just couldn't remember that first name.

Yes I prefer to camp, mainly from a cost standpoint. As I said in my post I had been unable to identify anywhere to stay at the end of yesterday - there are no camp sites without walking a long way off route and doing more miles at the end of a day I tried the options in ascending order of cost and ended up at The Ship Inn at £50. Wild camping in semi urban areas is fraught with problems including security and obtaining and or carrying water. My sim is to be as comfortable as possible. I am not looking go a macho, hair shirt experience.

Sir Hugh said...

Afoot - thanks. Now I remember but I have little recollection of the meeting on that, the wettest path in Scotland. The facts of the conversation and the timing and location put it beyond doubt that it was we who met.
