Good Morning - - the rain has now stopped and the forecast is good - - so we'll be off as soon as we've had us brekkie!

One from Sennen Cove on Tuesday. We decided to go to the National Seal Sanctuary, where I managed to fall over and twist my knee, so scrambling around on rocks was NOT fun! (Hence the title)

I think it was worth the agony, hope you do too Smile

Thanks for looking -- better go and supervise "The Boys" Wink

Cheers!

GOSH, Bill, THANKS for the UA - - the lads are already saying they're jealous of this one - - 'bout time too Smile

The knee was really bad, Steve, I could hardly walk, and was expecting to have ruined my entire holiday, but the ibuprofen has kept me going Smile

Cheers All Smile

You're welcome!

Credit where it's due, m'dear!
You've almost been the recipient quite a few times before.
This, however, is in a different league!! Quite possibly your best shot, imo!
The Lads are quite right to be jealous!

Thanks Alin, Slyvia, MrS, Dougie & Scott Smile

The Boss seems to think that I have my "wounded knee" to thank for this, as he says it's due to the restricted movement, I had no other option but to slow down and consider my shots more - - he may be right, and perhaps a lesson to take from here Grin

Cheers Folks, and thanks again, Bill Smile
