When I started this website, I didn't intend to write too many blogs, but nor did I intend to leave a four-month gap between entries either. My absence has been down to ill-health, and in the interim forgetting how to upload information (oops). So I had a 5-minute refresher from my webmaster last night, and not before time, as I'm heading off soon to take a trip round some of the Scottish Islands, something I've longed to do for many years and somehow never got round to - I'm sure you know the feeling.
As I'm feeling a hundred times better than at most times in the last 7 years, I have a few thank-yous to say. You probably won't know who they are, but they will, and they deserve it because without their help, skill and support, I would be struggling to continue taking journeys into the wilderness and the photos which I hope you enjoy viewing on this site. Firstly, my whole family, who've been with me every step of the way; my surgeons Cameron and Andrew, who know they work miracles, but have certainly had their work cut out with me; to Lesley, Fred and Lorna, Nicky, Liz and Peter, Jo and her boys, Pablo and Carmen, Charles, Lynn, Elaine, Sarah (x 2), Tom, Angela, Mark, Duncan and all those other friends and relatives who have put in so much to get me back on my feet again. A massive Thank You to each and every one of you.
Now, where's that camera...?!
