I have been fooling around with blogging now for perhaps a little too long, but viewing images and posts from so many sites, I still manage to stay inspired. Sadly the same cannot be said for Laura,  loosing interest a while back due to the ill words of one person in particular. This person posted anonymously for sometime on her blog and clearly followed it with fervour, yet could never find anything pleasant to say despite their clear (unhealthy) fascination with it. What has transpired over the past 20 or so months was the ability to finally find out who this person was, and finally close the loop as to why. Of course, what actually went on in their brain is their own mystery and something I have no desire to understand. Simply it is enough to say we now know, and can't quite figure out why this person would still continue to seek our friendship.

The image above is taken from pinterest - la vita e bella, and perhaps more purely reflects the good intentions of so many authors and readers in the blogosphere.  Long may this continue !

Been wanting to just get out and simply go to work or take the poor old dog for a walk, but it all seems just too difficult right now. The cold arctic wind seems to give little respite as the wind chimes have been continuous since our return, and only a handful of windsurfers making it out to the spot for a nice little clean wave session.  The only real bonus is that it is blue blue skies, appreciated all the more as it warms the back room. Take care out there !

Got this great link from my old friend Trevor, who despite living on the far western shores of Vancouver island, follows the European windsurf scene pretty keenly. What I like about this, and so many of the sessions I have scored in the past, is that it harks back to when I first became interested in windsurfing. It was the ability to enjoy the very worst of the weather conditions, which is an important facet living in the UK. So when I see proper windsurfing like this getting the publicity it deserves, it takes me back to the times of hunting and tracking weather conditions, from the 5 am Coast guard reports at Sheringham point through the dark days of mid winter.
