A view on Fishing,Community and Life on the NW coast of Scotland

Back to the Wood.

Difficult to believe we live in such a beautiful world tonight. It is hard to imagine, from a privileged position, what drives some people to kill and destroy others they do not know. Wandering about collecting more wood, coming across some beautiful fungi,


light on the remaining wood,


then after the dogs back in the van a wander down to the shore amongst the oyster catchers and turn stones,



seems so far from the violence around the world.

  1. Communing with nature puts us back in place in the world, doesn’t it? All these wonderful things can exist without us, but we shall not exist without them. Mankind has the mistaken idea that we are essential to all existence – Pah!
    Love the “turkey-tail” fungus – so colourful. I have pics of green ones as well as the blue – so pretty. And I photographed my first turnstone on Sunday at Gorleston harbour – didn’t know what it was but I looked it up.
    Have a grand New Year, Ali.

      And the same to you Rob. Have to leave those bits of wood behind and quite agree, I find the best periods of life are communing in nature…just being there is enough and refreshes for going back into what we seem to call living.
