The Finlaggan at Sunrise
Nick's hobby, if you didn't know, is washing gravel and once we all laughed at him in Dorset, but the fact is if you wash all the
mud out of gravel on your drive, you wont get weeds!
The problem, you may already see is that it takes
many hours, days, weeks to wash a whole drive.
Not to worry he has many helpers!
After the drains were washed of mud and full of gleaming pebbles, Mr Currie arrived...
...with a big load of gravel!
...for 2 days
we sieved and shoveled
...until the whole drive was covered in type1 gravel
(scalpings in Dorset)
...and when we looked at the house we realised
it was the same colour as the slate.
...as the day turned dreich,
a lone Fallow buck foraged on the beach
...and the dogs just couldn't be bothered to get up again.
