The picture (paining at the top) is of the beach by the old swimming pool, the place I last bunged a dinghy in. Yea I know it’s supposed to be for jet skies, but they gotta catch you at it. 
We have been a bit busy with the bookshop over the last few days, click on the link to see the incredible amount of books that have gone out on the shelves http://michaelsbookshop.blogspot.co.uk/

Sheila says the last lot of actual annual discharge figures she can find for the big sewage pipe are the 2012 figures, year on year there isn't much to chose between them.
