It really is an amazing thrill to be so close to so many birds and surrounded by such beauty!!!

The times I was driving were accompanied by live soccer games from England on Satellite radio!!!!!

Around 5pm it was time to find somewhere to stop and after a few minutes scouting around came upon the wharf here

After supper there was a knock on my door and another one of the fishermen was there and gave me this CD

he is on the right and he wrote and composed the music and he wanted me to have the new CD…I thanked so much and am now listening to it and it is good….

What people!!!
