Is it Wark Castle & the mouth of the river Coquet looking towards Bilton & Boulmer?
h-r



(actually it wuz pure deduction my dear Watson. The DI meant it had to be an eastern seaboard of these fair isles and you don't have a passport stamp to leave the county of N'bria.. Happy New Year!)



PS not enough clues to guess where MB is departing from..

January's Calendar

This month's Rotorheads calendar has one of the best helicopter pictures I have ever seen.





Thanks to Shawn Evans (Bag Swinnger) for taking such a great picture. That Nikon D80 is awsome in the hands of a good photographer!!

Widescreen 1280x800

Normal 1280x1024
