Back to work for a couple of days tomorrow.
Nice to have a break, but sometimes four days in a row are just too much.

What sort of photography do you do Bryan?

I used to take photographs in connection with my typesetting and design services for the printing industry, but now take pictures mainly for pleasure.
We have some beautiful scenery down here in the South Hams of Devon Countryside, and seaside too, places like Bigbury-on-Sea, Wembury, Tor Cross (Slapton), Paignton just a few coastal places that we enjoy visiting.
At Tor Cross, there is a memorial (an army tank) to American Soldiers who were on exercise during World War II at this beach, when many, sadly, were killed.
I'll get a couple-or-three together and send them to you if you like (just give me a couple of days!)
Thanks for asking, and take care. Bryan

You're so lucky to be living near the coast. My family used to holiday around Devon when I was a tiddler but North Wales is my favourite now, nice and wild. Put your photos on the Hangout Bryan then everyone will have the benefit.

That's a good idea Jane, I'll try to sort some pretty ones out, thanks.

Well done Bryan. You get back to work and paying yer taxes to keep my pension dropping through the letter box lol. But don't let too much work get in the way of pickin' that 'Countryman'.

Your post Brian takes me back to my skin-diving days regularly from Beesands, just next door to Torcross. A good diving friend of mine, now deceased offered to take me down to that same tank when it was immersed.
The great dives that I had in that area until constant ear problems made me pack it in. I still holidayed there with my little sailing dinghy for several years. A beautiful part of our island, wonderful memories. Only a banjo can compensate, I'm a keen amateur photogragher myself.

Hi John, I see you're from the same area as Edwin, I wonder if you ever meet up and play.
Yes, John, if you're feeling a bit short, just send me a note, I'll be happy to send you a little nothing in the post hehehe.
And Edwin, yes, wonderful at Beesands - I don't walk much distance now, but my wife often drives down to Tor Cross and walks do Beesands, even to Hallsands, and if she's even more energetic, past there to the Start Point lighthouse. I think she sometimes forgets that she has to walk all the way back to the car in Tor Cross!

Yes Bryan, I do meet up with Edwin but never to play. He says he gets nervious playing in public, but I'll get him out with his banjo one day.
