Clough Head this spring..........
After another perfect days flying in Africa, I worked a silky smooth valley-release over a small settlement called Suncity in Kwazulu-Natal.  With just fifty or so round huts and a small school, all was perfectly still and silent until I got down to about a grand above the ground; after which I could clearly hear the squealing excitement of dozens of small children.  They all helped me pack my glider and then sat and practiced their English on me until my retrieval driver turned up - with a cold beer.
I took this Photo when walking to Budle Bay from Alnmouth in 1997, I think this sums up our magnificent county.

The rules say one pic taken by yourself. Well I put this panorama together from 2 photos taken by Steve Gill, which is why that's me in the picture. So does this count as my entry or Steve's?

My new dog Lucy takes a shine (yes SHINE) to my lid.
