#TreeSquare …. A Venerable Oak

Venerable Oak

This venerable Oak has graced this field for many centuries. Observed much in its life and even had the field named after it – ” Oak Furlong Meadow “.  Survived yet another winter and once again sporting a rich head of leaf (all be it a thinner head as each year goes bye)

Thoughtful Thursday…. Not going to Sea

 

Fishing Days are Over

Fishing Days are Over…

I always feel rather sad to see the rotting hulks of old Fishing Vessels,  left to the weather and looters to strip it to its skeleton.

Many years of venturing on the turbulent seas, bringing home a catch to earn a valuable income for its owner.  I am old enough to remember the days when the Scottish Fishing Harbours were crammed, wall to wall with such craft.  Now all but gone.

It was a dangerous and extremely hard way to earn a living…. it needed a tough boat and a tough crew.

They too had to….

Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
