Very windy day on Sunday and it was the van instead of the bike to work.
The fire end of the Inn was busy with tables being used twice by the end of lunch time.
Plenty of staff on so it was back home early enough to take a couple of shots of the new wood pile at Milton, some lovely hardwood stacked European style, to mature over the year.
Fishing this morning although it was not a quiet day.
Seals looked pretty relaxed on the way out.
Managed 200 pots up and there was a reasonable fishing of mainly small and medium prawns so did not feel about too bad about heading in on a half day.
The forecast is very changeable and is changing itself from day to day. Saturday I was telling every one that it was going to be a great week and by Sunday it was down at the bottom again, so hence the reason for trying it on Monday. Still not seeing a mate for the eider who has taken up residence in the moorings.
After landing prawns I went back out on the bike with Dougal and Co up to the Walled Garden and back and stopped to have a look at some of the stumps of the trees that are being removed for safety reasons.
Old trees that have done their time.
Sort of know what they feel like. I am back to only thinking what I should do next as there is such a pile of things to do.
Luckily the weather was favourable today as we had a social media day at the Hall. Met Rene last night at the Inn where we had an informal session with Ipads to see if we can improve usage and cut down on wasted time. Good targets to aim at. Lots of info and I think most people there were quite inspired to improve their own profiles/marketing and information spreading. I now seem to have opened a new twitter account and am following a few guys maybe with the intention of reaching a few more readers, we will see. Rene Looper, an extremely engaging tutor and already have forgotten more than I knew before today. http://tuminds.com/
Lovely rainbow over Milton,
almost too close for a snap as could not squeeze it all in but it was worth stopping to view.
Both on the lunch trip to the Inn and again in the evening keep meeting the Flensberg students who are going round as many houses as time permits, carrying out a survey and seeing if improvements can be made to reduce carbon and bills. Early night tonight,sometimes you are just not up for it despite everything happening, with a creel wash planned for tomorrow if the forecast is right.
