Enjoying adventures, well afterwards mostly. Old Man of Hoy, Old Man of Stoer, Kilnsey Main Overhang, walking to the Old Forge (British mainlands remotest pub) in torrential rain and then whimping out via the ferry on the way back, only to arrive in Fort William in time to see the first British male win Wimbledon in donkey's years.
