    Found some old photos from where I grewp up in South London, been scaning them on to the computer, then on to Photobucket for a link from FB, I enjoyed that (oh, plus a bit of shopping).


    Home is not perhaps where you are, it is more where you should be, where your family , friends and other important people in your life are.

    Tulse Hill is not a place, it is a state of mind.

    The quarry is at Vins sur Caramy. There are two old open cast mines, and one is used for swimming. The other is closed off and not very inviting. There is a car park next to it across the road and in summer a buvette too. On one of the trees the commune has posted a notice ‘Toute activite nautique interdit’ but the police municipal come round every so often to make sure no-one is causing problems, and leave everyone else alone. It’s truly paradise. At one end is a shallow sloping area which is used by families mostly, and along the sides a rocky area, with some sharp steep drops into the water and some sloping areas. It’s about 50-70 metres deep, hence the doubts by some about its safety. On a very busy day, you might find 40 people there, but they are so spread out and the lake is so big that there is never a feeling of being crowded.

    There, now I’ve spoiled it for myself and eveyrone will want to go!! :D

    Thank you! I would only be able to go there very occasionally, when I’m on holiday in the area, so I won’t spoil it for you, I promise.

    After cutting down a 30 ft tree 2 weeks ago, final trip to-day (last of 17) to get rid of the branches. 15 mins to cut it down, 2 weeks to get rid of the detrius. Plenty more to be cut down still tho :cry: On a positive note, all the smaller branches have been chipped up to use as a mulch.

    Today, as I write this its 1.30 Sunday morning and I will mostly be resting from the exertions of yesterday (Saturday).

    I have just returned from Compiegne, we kayaked for 20km on the river Oise then hiked 15kms in the forêt de Compiegne, before leaving my place I did a 16km training run for the semi marathon.
