Soggysetshire

My so called friends made me walk up a great long path to some old church. It was, by my standards, a long walk. I paused to take a picture to stave off what felt like an imminent cardiac arrest. In the distance you can see Wales.....the country not the thing that swallowed Jonah.

Bill Phillips: I can see we re gong to get along just fine next week Peter grin
Well what are friends for... but to give you a coronary for fun! It did lead to a very pretty photo!!
(Thanks for clarifying the "Wales" part...)
Bill Phillips: This was only half way up!

To get a view from Wales, almost swallowed you whole...
Great shot and I love the view, I hope you thanked your friends for taking you on this road....
Bill Phillips: I didn't have the strength

Love the framing, Bill.

There are some naughty folks who have on occasion...usually a smashing defeat in Rugby...wished that the whale had in fact swallowed Wales instead of Jonah...
Bill Phillips: They love their Rugby. I enjoyed watching us beat them in the 6 Nations

The long way and the stressful climb up were worth this beautiful view on Wales -a choccie box photo, indeed!
Bill Phillips: This was only half way Philine grin
If you squint, you can indeed see Wales, Bill. The last time we were in England, Chris drove us into Wales for a couple of hours just so we could say we've been there! smile

Now, make sure you rest up and are in one piece for when we'll see you soon!
Bill Phillips: Wales is a beautiful country Ginnie.

Had you wanted to escape you could have swum over to the fare shore.
Bill Phillips: You are full of good ideas

They knew you could do it, Bill! Aren't you pleased you did?
Bill Phillips: You will discover the answer to that in a later picture Lisl
Is this choccie box or just your usual rubbish.Up north we would call this rubbish.
Bill Phillips: But then up North you are well known for confusing the difference between your ar**s and your elbows
They would not have been so nonchalant if they had to carry you back down the hill. Lovely blue sky picture.
Bill Phillips: I'm all right going downhillgrin

What no boat! I want my money back!!!

We have had nothing but boats all week and now nothing!

I guess the view of !wales in the sunshine will have to suffice - a bit of a rarity in itself!
Bill Phillips: Wales and sun do tend to be an oxymoron. This is boatless Friday
Looks a beautiful view, enhanced by your choccie box treatment smile
Bill Phillips: It was Martin and seeing Wales bathed in sunshine is a rarity
but you got to see this view and the rare occurrence of the sea actually looking blue!
Bill Phillips: Rare indeed but wonderful when it happens Sarah
Judging from the view you've captured here, Bill, I would say the effort was well worth it.
Bill Phillips: It was really Beverly
serene blues to be enjoyed here Bill, great shot
Bill Phillips: Thanks very much Ayush
Did they have to carry you the rest of the way?
Bill Phillips: That would have killed them!

They were only better at hiding their suffering.
Bill Phillips: They are fitter than I am!
Nice on Bill.. good that you stopped to take this amazing picture!
Bill Phillips: I stopped several times Ronky grin

If you had got left behind Billiam we would have found you easily just by listening for the heavy breathing
Bill Phillips: I nearly stopped breathing altogether
I would have been kn******d along with you going up that hill, but it is a lovely view of Wales isn't it. BTW I had a look at your recent Flickr postings of this trip, there are some fine images among them.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Brian. Most pictures look better on Flickr than they do on SC
Tough climb Bill but well worth the effort.
Bill Phillips: This was only half way Scotia!

Did you need oxygen? Great photo though, worth the hike.
Bill Phillips: I thought I might need the last rites Pauline grin
Wonderfully framed Bill!
Bill Phillips: Thanks very much Richard. I thought you might like this one

I was looking for Dopey Mick until you mentioned the country. I think I know the church; is at Culbone?
Bill Phillips: Could begrin
Absolutely beautiful blues... I hope you enjoyed the walk.
