Montana looks like the Norwegian Fjords, lovely that Patricia. :D K

One of the few US States I've never been to, looks worthy of a visit.

Something I've never had, Ken. I've had an aversion to seafood since seeing my mates eating cockles and youens. If that's the right word, they looked like bogies anyway :D

I've got to ask, why would you want to eat this? :) There again, one man's meat, is another man's poison.

Bernie, I hope the pain is easing and the mobility improving. I had mine done 4 years ago and got an infection. Many weeks in hospital, but all is better now. So my thoughts are definitely with you. :)

I'm with you, Phil - they look disgusting never cared to even try them.
Remember the little stalls selling same on the Proms at the seaside growing up.
Cockles are another - Ugh!! :D However as my Mum used to say:
"Everyone to their own taste said, Mary, as she kissed the
cow!" :D

Graham - great photos - that house looks like a mini
castle. Glad you had some nice weather.

Ken - Montana will have to be on your "Bucket List" although, I'm
certain you must be very near the end of same after that
l o n g cruise you have just been on!! :D
Montana is like the last frontier with plenty of wildlife we saw
Wild Turkeys, Deer, Eagles, Chipmunks, Elk and even a Bear!!

at the age of 62 i can still be a wally at times.i was taking some photos of some tufted ducks and wanted to get a bit closer.this required me to walk round the loch to get down to the water.to do so i took a short cut across a field.ignoring the BEWARE OF THE BULL sign i thought i was being clever as i could not see any sign of the bull.but as i came over a little hill i found myself in the middle of his cows.two seconds later he came charging down the hill at me with his harem in tow.i ran for my life for 200 yards to a gate and scrambled over.in the process i lost a pair of glasses and a lens cap.and to put a tin hat on it i had forgotten to put a memory card in the camera(i took it out to upload to my laptop the night before).not my finest moment.graham :oops: :oops: :oops:

the shot of the swans was taken at a little loch called SAINT SERFS WATER near CRIEFF,PERTHERSHIRE.it was a lovely spot and it looked like no one had been there for years,the path was very overgrown.it was hard work getting anywhere near the water.but with my bins i was able to see a lot nature at work.tonights effort is a squirrel,it stayed still so long i thought it was nailed onto the tree.graham..
