Wifi-less in Gower

I've now got the photographs of our Steep Holm trip from Dru. I've put some of my favourites under the cut.

On the battlements (gull-deterring alexander in hand)


The life cycle of a herring gull, ab ovo to roaring out its victory having just shat on my shoe.

A grey seal pops up to take a look


A peregrine falcon, resting and in flight

A plant that Dru assures me is known as welcome-home-husband-though-never-so-drunk


The island, near and far

Ever the flibbertigibbet, I'm off again now for a few days, to revisit my friends Ronald and Ana (and others) on the Gower Peninsula, where we'll be devoting the weekend to the myth of Perseus, a subject about which I know little more now than I did at the age of 10 - but that's all about to change. I will be netless until Sunday, and until then I leave the digital world in the capable hands of you, oh friends list.
