Wanaka tree

More South Devon

To round up the posts from my trip to South Devon last week-end here are the final few photos. 

When I was walking down the one side of the little valley to Great Mattiscombe Sands I looked across at the fields on the other side and was really taken by the pattern that the sheep or cattle had made with their tracks.



On my way home after visiting Hallsands and a few other places I stopped off in the town of Kingsbridge. Here are a few photos.

A. List seven habits/quirks/facts about yourself.
B. Tag seven people to do the same.
C. Do not tag the person who tagged you or say that you tag "whoever wants to do it."

In no particular order:
1. I like chocolate, a lot, and have a passion for TimTams - the finest chocolate covered biscuits the world has ever known.
2. I always wear odd socks.
3. I really don't like milk and eggs, even though I was brought up on a dairy farm.
4. I can't stand the Imperial system of weights and measures, because it is absurd and makes no sense and is just hide-bound in old-fashioned, outmoded, British (and other) Conservatism. Metric is so much more logical. Countries that use things like miles, gallons, pounds, fahrenheit and all the other ludicrous insular ways of quantifying stuff should just grow up, get over it and join the real world. That got me going!
5. I really enjoy drinking but I can't stand being drunk. Fine wines - good, hangovers - bad!
6. I'm almost always happy and it takes a lot to upset me - life's too short for bad moods and crap like that.
7. Oh, and I wish I was in New Zealand.

I tag...
