Bet it doesent show what I was drinking at the time, maybe Wully's "Awe Naw" post might reveal what it was. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Spent a while comparing the pics to a map (not chatr) of the Clyde/l Fyne area and am relieved at how accurate the map is as far as land/water interfaces (shores) shapes are.


Read somewhere that there was tooooo muchhhh cloud cover over the lake district to get any pics. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :)
