Bloody ankle!!

Well once again I have sprained my ankle! Once again this was doing something stupid!

Climbing on a really crappy slate cliff. Just bouldering and traversing around the bottom of the cliff. Too busy watching other people, and not realising I had gone above a little gully above the sea. Somebody tried to take a piccy. I act the clown and let go with one foot and one leg. The foothold then chooses that moment to disintegrate, and I slide down. I reckon a sprained ankle is really quite lucky!!! I could have banged my head quite badly, or broke a bone. I also nearly slide even further and went down into the sea below. It was fairly calm, but it would have been a right bugger to climb back out of it.

As it was with the knackered ankle, I had to crawl, hope all the way around the base of the cliff before I could get back onto the beach, What a numpty!!

The Golden gate Bridge

The Golden Gate bridge must surely rank as one of the best man made structures in the world. There’s just something so pleasing to the eye about it. … and it reallly does its job of transporting people. I love it! (taken last week, with lovely weather and no dammed fog!!)

Video iPod

I watched the first episode of Doctor Who S2, on a plane with a video iPod. I am very impressed!!! What with my new Etymotic ER6i headphones (writeup to follow), it was a very pleasant experience.

The decent resolution really makes a difference from the much larger screen of the plane’s crappy in seat display.  Much nicer to view.
