Yesterday...

...morning on my way to work at about 8.15am, two tremendous floaty pale Barn Owls were hunting 20 or 30 yards apart on a small patch of rough right next to the roundabout on the southern edge of Amble. In the gloom, they positively glowed.The last few days have been a bit blustery so maybe they were still hungry and took advantage of a dry calm spell.

After work I popped down to the Gosforth Park Marriot to meet up with Mark Skevington ( Skev's blog in the column over there) who was up here on business. Its great to get a chance to meet up with other bloggers who you almost feel you know just through reading their regular postings. I just hope I didn't bore him to death, I don't get too many people with the same interests to chat with up here!

Bored? Nah - always good to chat with like-minded souls. It was great to have a pint and a natter Stewart - made an otherwise dull trip much more bearable.
