West Kirby

This feels a bit like stealing somebody else’s thunder, but what the hell. Pip and I spent three hours walking and fooling about on the beach at West Kirby on Sunday evening. I say beach, but it is a good mile’s walk to the sea over the sand towards Hilbre Island. The far horizon is dotted with wind farms nowadays but I like them. They add to the feeling of isolation as the sun goes down and the only other people around are miles away towards Hoylake. They say that there is a good reason why the major religions sprang up in desert regions, and you can see why when you are out alone on the sands at sunset. Pip always goes a bit doo-lally when she has this much space to run into and a big sky over her head.

    It happens when you get old. Soldier in desert – camel – turban – arab dress – I can’t remember his name. You’ll have to remind me.

    Anyway…Pippa looks Happy, and this pic will piss winger off. 🙂

    I don’t see why winger will be pissed off. I know I’ve nicked his schtick for this one but there you go.

    You’re just a wannabee amatuer Elt, how could I possibly be pissed?

    However, ‘The Adventures of Kirby Pip’ does have a ring to it.

    Right, I’m off to blog on the latest thinking in human crypto-dymanic relationships. *

    So amateurish, that image of Pip bestriding the Dee Estuary was taken on my mobile.

    “So amateurish, that image of Pip bestriding the Dee Estuary was taken on my mobile.”

    Ah, now I understand the strange colours. But they look right, if you *no what I mean.

    I think winger is having some sort of a regression. That black cross thing on his blog has got me putting garlic on the back door.
