Der Dumm ...

By MrsS    
Hi All - Wednesday already! Only two more get-ups for me!! Wink

Another one from our trip last Saturday, and I'd actually packed up my gear as I was "paddling" in my boots at this stage, with my not too distantly broken foot complaining VERY loudly! (that's the only problem with really waterproof boots, they keep the water out beautifully, but once the water is in there, they keep it IN beautifully as well!!)

However, MrS was having tons of fun and persuaded me to get my new toys back out, so here's the result.

I do believe I can post this one now as he had "first post rights" Wink

Hope you like, I'm sure you'll let me know, and thanks for taking the time to call in - hope you have done all your Christmas shopping - mine starts on Monday! Smile

Oh, as for the title, it's the first two notes of a rather famous film theme, chosen for the shape of that rock - thank goodness we weren't in deeper water!! Tongue

Salt water is good for sore feet, and they would have been sore by the time you walked back to the car park here.
Blue in the colour in the shadows butthen it would have been. Good work here with a sore foot.
