Been on Coniston for two weeks now- and the saying is definitely true!


Had a group of Arctic Tern on the lake last week too, don't see them too often, so that was nice- one of the most beautiful sea birds in flight.

There were a couple of swifts or swallows over the lake in Cambridge yesterday morning - too far away to identify accurately.

Took my 5 year old grandson to the lake yesterday
He was sailing his Piranha and managed to
ram my Marblehead and put a big hole through the deck.
Ah the joys of grand parenting.

Grand parenting is payback for having kids %) %) %)
 
Kids give you grey hair etc, grandkids finish you off  O0 O0 {-) {-)
 
Ah but how boring life would be without them.
 
Just imagine sitting there sailing your model in peace and serenity  :kiss: :kiss:
