Great Egret with some very precise preening.....

Theme for this week is ablution as defined by the Oxford dictionary: “An act of washing oneself“, but we’ll take it a little more than that to also include, preening, stretching, scratching etc. Don’t forget to include +Jim Robertson in your posts

Story
Tagline
If there's another way of doing it...............
Introduction
To continue from the Tagline

- I'm a gadget freak but I don't have a single Apple product
- no Nikon or Canon
- my car has no pistons

Married for more than 30 years to Chris and we have two sons born in the mid '80s - you do the maths.

Used to play rugby, cricket and squash but, now, humping the "bigma" around is as energetic as it gets.....

Support Lancashire at cricket; Wales at Rugby and Ipswich Town at Football - work that out!

Bragging rights
Escaped the rat-race at 53 and haven't looked back since.........

Facilities and staff were very good indeed. Bar menu is a little limited in my view, and the Tandoori Salmon needs spicing up a tad.
