Normal walking pants have replaced shorts. My Paramo Cascada jacket has come out of hibernation. As far as I can remember I bought that jacket in a blur moment back in 2006 at the gear shop in Braemar.
|"Blur moments" entered the family lexicon years ago when an older version of this card was sent on one of our birthdays|
I was aware that the waist cord threaded through the Cascada had worn through the fabric and four or five inches were hanging loose from the rear.
Recommended retail price for a new one is £220. Thanks to Gayle I found there is an eBay site selling discounted, new Paramo and I have replaced it for £179.00. Whilst deliberating I emailed Paramo, mainly to find out what the difference is between the Cascada and the Alta, it not being at all clear on their website, and I had this reply from Ken Mulley:

|This seriously challenged the camera. I've tried with Photoshop, but it was an interesting little building on the other side of the road from the cottages above - stone shelves inside. maybe an ice-house?|
