A New Year! But same old, same old blog... Penguins, plants, and people doing silly things, in variable weather conditions.
|Magellanic penguin and chick|
|Sea Cabbage - prevents scurvy.|
|Crowds line the harbour|
|The Navy in their new semi-submersible|
|Solo bathtub attempt|
|The corrugated iron design proves seaworthy|
|Vikings versus shovellers|
|Army issue shovels|
|The longboat, beached outside the Narrows Bar|
|Home and hosed, as the racing saying goes.|
|Pet, lawn-mower, lunch.....?|
|"Say 'Aye' to a pie!"|
Soon after, it will be Burns Night, the global celebration of Scotland's National Bard, who wrote "Auld Lang Syne", which I hope many of you sang the other evening. (You might notice I'm stocking up on the Haggis, in case there is a shortage....)
So, the diet starts tomorrow! Have a Happy and Prosperous 2013.
