Ella and I were on the beach at Druidston Haven in Pembrokeshire last week. We were lucky enough to see an otter very close up, about 10m away. It sat and watched us for a while and then wanderered off. I have never seen one this closely before, it seemed almost tame.

I promised Joel that I would make a Caledonian MacBrayne ferry out of lego. This is not an easy task when you only have limited amounts of lego. Anyway here is my first attempt, it is vaguely based on the MV Loch Nevis. It even has a ramp that goes up and down to load the cars!

We have spent many an afternoon wandering around Ardkinglas gardens at the head of Loch Fyne. This tree, a mighty Silver Fir never fails to amaze me, it is over 10 metres in girth and has 4 seperate trunks, each of which must be 40 metres or more high. If you do ever visit, dont forget to have a plate of prawns afterwards at Loch Fyne Oysters up the road, and have a pint of Avalanche from Loch Fyne Ales.

When I want a morning out and I cant decide where to go, I often end up in Gordale. I usually climb up the waterfall before the crowds arrive and find my favourite spot looking down the gorge, crack open a big flask of coffee and I am a happy man.

The picture says it all really. Old Delhi is a crazy place, the sights and smells are incomparable. I advise not to stand still for very long, or you will find a group of people surrounding you wanting to take you to their Uncles carpet emporium, or sell you nice DVD, or take all your money, or give you a ride in their tuk-tuk to avoid road closure due to demonstration, or read you fortune, or.... you get the idea.

I am sat in Dubai Airport Business Lounge at the moment and I am very bored. The only thing to do is eat all the free food, another breakfast is calle for. They have the usual western fare, but whoever invented chicken sausages should be locked up, cant wait to get back home for some nice cumberland instead.

Took part in the Illuminating Hadrians Wall event yesterday, coverage is in all over the press today. It is was rather cold on Steel Rigg, until I lit the burner. Photos of my burner alight are on the Guardian website (photos 1 and 5)
Update: I am in the first picture in the Journal website article
