To dougie: Thank you, Dougie!
Thank you for looking and for your kind remarks.

This was a pretty dull day and this was the best I could get. Work really interferes with this hobby - I wish I could get to places like this at the right time and in the right lighting conditions.

Never seen a salmon here and I'm pretty sure there's not a ladder. Certainly sea-trout get up here but I'm not sure if salmon do. Unfortunately not done any real fishing since schooldays: I used to tie my own flies in the winter. I've still most of the gear too. Funny, I was browsing a magazine recently and saw Rhode Island Red cock capes for 75: last time I bought one, it was fifteen bob!

Kind Regards,

Fifteen bob! :)))

I was working in Woolies to augment my grant when the changeover was made. What a todo there was. I cannot imagine reverting back to £s shillings and pence now, never mind halfpennies, farthings and threepenny bits.

And what about florins, half-crowns and guineas?

Or a groat? - the price a Dutch fellow called Jan de Groot used to charge to ferry you across from Caithness to Orkney - hence John o' Groats. You can read about him here.
