Colin(elkiebrooks) and I made a 4 hour round trip to North Devon yesterday to meet up with Ian Munro, Phil Morgan, ge22y, Outlander and Poochie. While we were there we also bumped into Paul_Forgham and JohnFanning which was an added bonus! (great to meet you all chaps Smile)

This is the first one from the evening that I finished processing at 12.40 this morning – got to get in there quick, as the site’s going to be full of shots from here over the next few days! Wink

This sets a high standard for the rest of us to follow Paul. So much for getting home to the wife and relaxing. Me..I had a pie and a pint, watched MOTD a bit and then went to bed. Thanks for the lift and the great evening out.

Yes, that's right - too high and you can't get to the rocks, even if you could they'll be under water, and too low you wont get the water movement through the "fingers"
