Early bogging of car
Although the walk was less than 4 miles from Stanley, as the crow flies, it still took about an hour to drive there, partly due to the local enthusiasm for driving 4x4s across the countryside! The car being towed above was the 7th to drive over that very spot, but somehow it managed to get "bogged", as the local expression has it. But with so many life-long off-roading experts around, it wasn't long until the convoy was on the move again.

|Sunday drive near Stanley. The dot in the centre is my car!|
|Keep to the track....|
|New fences. New signs. Old problems.|
|Managed to find a space on the beach for lunch|
A few weeks ago, I mentioned discovering the Solar System sculpture walk around Stanley....

And to make up for the lack of penguins this week, here is another sunset with the Lady Elizabeth. (I have several hundred to see me through the winter!)
The weather has been showery this week, but not on a scale as in England, I understand. Some locals in a pub were commenting that there hadn't been serious rainfall here since last October! Farmers are worried they may run out of water for their sheep! Could someone organise a tankerload from England?
