<VR> the Watches
« on: 21:18:49, 19/12/17 »

with low cloud forecast it wasnt looking good to do any high fells today,
when we got off the bus at High side we could see a temperature inversion,
we were heading for Ullock pike, but with cloud covering the top,
we decided to stop and have lunch at the Watches,
and what a spectacular view we had,

Another great video Beefy  O0  and good to see April up and about again. Guess she is now April PZWAS (President Zip Wire Appreciation Society)  :o


Some fabulous views.

Really nice vid of a grand day out  O0 Pleased you had lots of Willo flying time  :)

I am nearly there Welsh Rambler but by about 2.30 my neck still gets very tired and my head feels like its going to fall off. Well not quite  :)

It is just as well I didn't know that Mike Turner doesn't appear to be a very good employer looking at the job advert here

Or I might have got really annoyed talking about the zip wire plan  :D

Fantastic, Beefy. What an amazing view you guys got and those still photos halfway through are just beautiful!  O0

Noooo! Why would anyone want to do that? I love the intro and the music works perfectly.  :)


April, that was a great speech - we could do with people like you in the House of Commons instead of that shower we're lumbered with...  O0 ;D 


Sadly, I don't think Mike Turner's employer ethos is that unusual these days.  :( >:(

You are right, there are a lot of unscrupulous people out there who don't care about anything except making as much money as they can and they will exploit people and the environment to do so.

Lovely views for cheering up on a dull, misty Wednesday morning.

Success! Having been out late last night I didn't get round to seeing this at home but this morning apparently I can watch it at work.


Really magical Beefy, the shots of the inversion and the simple piano music are just beautiful.


I was shocked by Aprils language, I think she only told Mike Turner that he could p... off, I would have expected better from her.
