The hunting ban has probably led to a lot more foxes being shot, the ban is not all good news if you are a fox.
That was inevitable, farmers or land owners protecting their stock, but harder for the antihunter to stop, man and gun compared to hunt meeting
 
Garden is getting closer to being finished, need to grout in the slabs and build the BBQ area, and coping stones on top of wall. Then it’s down the lower bit and sort out the 20 year old patio around hot tub, I laid that on sand, was perfect, until some idiot cleaned it with a power washer? Now need to reset some slabs.

Sunday afternoon had a drive to Fort Victoria just west of Yarmouth, Isle of Wight. First pic shows an elderly couple enjoying the western Solent sunshine, framed by one of the fort's casemates.
Second pic shows the Sconce bell-buoy just off the fort, with the strong ebb tide clearly showing. The yacht Eximius was on a broad reach and making ground whilst definitely being held back by the current.

Currently basking in the Cornish sunshine. The apartment is on the Falmouth side of the Penryn river; from the sitting room, you look across the river to the village of Flushing.

Hi @Wightsparker. Enjoyed a similar view whilst staying at the Geenbank Hotel (family wedding) - Just a few strides along the waterfront to the right of your viewpoint.
Excellent hotel, incidentally the lounge bar floor is covered in teak (?) decking salvaged from "Grand Old Lady" HMS Warspite: Decommissioned in 1945, she ran aground under tow in 1947 on rocks near Prussia Cove, Cornwall, and was eventually broken up nearby.

Hi Bob. I'm staying in an apartment about 100 yards from the Greenbank. Not explored the hotel itself, but The Working Boat pub (below the hotel) is pretty good. View from jetty outside the pub shows RFAs in Falmouth docks - I recognised RFA Argus ( leftish) , on which I departed from Marchwood in 1991 for the Adriatic - but have not seen the new Tide class previously.

Cornwall seems to be a Duchy with firm ideas of looking after both spiritual and bodily requirements.
Although upon further inspection, the Bar turns out to be made of sand, shingle and rock in the Carrick Roads estuary.

The Roseland Gig Club in St Mawes, Cornwall, uses an old Shell garage at the harbour's edge as a base. The building boasts old pumps selling petrol at 2 and thruppence a gallon, plus an old AA sign giving greater prominence to a local destination than to London. Quite right, too. 2018 St Mawes 1 resized.jpg 2018 St Mawes 3 resized.jpg 2018 St Mawes 2 resized.jpg
