Michelle went walkabout again today.
I didn’t. I was waiting in for our new ‘new’ inverter to arrive, which it didn’t, but I had to wait in just in case.
On her wanderings Michelle came across this…or ‘these’, depending on your perspective.
Is it just me, or does Michelle have an uncanny knack of stumbling haphazardly upon the eldritch? The last photograph she took was of some fairy bridge weirdness near Cockerham. It was crying out to be illustrated and peopled with Rackham-esque characters. So that’s what I did. Well, that’s what I sort of half did. I drew it up and was going to add one of those trolls that had schoolkids’ pencils stuck up their bottoms back in the seventies, until Michelle pointed out that they were probably copyrighted, so I added some mice playing wag to the finished product instead.
When she’d finished being mazed by the goblins (good work if you can get it) Michelle next visited the arts and crafts shop at Galgate Marina, to see if they’d buy any of our excellent Mouse Boat greetings cards.
Apparently not. They didn’t even look at them.
Some you win, most you lose.
Here’s a photograph of the aforementioned shop, anyhow. As soon as my new ‘new’ inverter’s been fitted, I’m off up to Galgate to set up shop on the canal bank and sell some cards anyhow, because I’m an awkward bugger like that.
One last photograph to finish off this posting with. I don’t know where it is. Some place around Abbeystead somewhere. I wasn’t there.
