Good Evening All
I took lots of photos whilst we were away but I think this is the best one and it reflects the fantastic scenery we met with most everywhere. click here it is the View towards Loch Maree en route to Gairloch, from the A832.

Whilst on the Isle of Bute I saw a couple of old synchronised swimming pals of John Bunyans. They didn’t say anything intelligible as they were eating fish suppers - not from Zavaronis though as they looked pretty raw and undercooked.
When I asked them if they knew Bingalau they seemed to take offence and threw themselves from the rocks into the sea, muttering ‘we’re not that bloody old’ - they must have been US Navy SEALS ;o}} click here

Enough of the frivolity, down to the nitty-gritty! As you have had a week off, I thought I had better throw in a very obscure one to get you back up to scratch ;o}} I shall give you an early clue, it is in Wales.

Welcome back.
Looks like a Welsh valley, with a coal train heading out of the valley.

  Woolwell 21:23 14 May 2010

South Wales coal mining. But these valleys all look alike to me. Where are the welsh tonight?

Plenty of workings/sidings, but no sign of a pithead.

Opencast? Not many of those in South Wales.

North Wales?

  Brumas 21:30 14 May 2010

It is in South Wales.
