Who am I?

An individual, of no great importance, who is unable to see the natural world as a place for competition. I catch fish, watch birds, derive immense pleasure from simply looking at butterflies, moths, bumble-bees, etc - without the need for rules! I am Dylan and this is my blog - if my opinions offend? Don't bother logging on again - simple!

Back home - no regrets

I got back home just after 01.15 hrs, this morning, after an epic session on the wondrous Loch Awe. Benno, Sye and I have endured some crazy, although never extreme, weather and have come through the experience, our lives enriched by the time spent in each others company. We left a day early due to a severe weather warning - heavy snow, and did they get some? We departed as the snow arrived and battled into some hefty snow showers as we headed south; road side digital signs warning "Heavy snow forecast". What we'd seen was just the warm up act for a proper onslaught - the constant procession of Snow Ploughs going north, was enough of a compensation for lost a day of our holiday. We'd done everything we could have hoped, and so much more. There will be a proper trip report, at some stage, these images are just to set the scene.

We weren't the only one's up there pike fishing!

can't think where he gets it from?
