As usual, first, the location:
OK, so the first one is a bit cheeky ...
I stayed at a place called Featherstone Castle as part of a school trip. It was one of those "We'll tell the authorities that it's educational, but it's really fun" trips. They don't really do that any more, I don't think. Anyway, these days my old school goes on ski trips!
EARTHQUAKE!!!! Or shoddy camera work. Featherstone Castle done a great injustice by my lack of stillness!
Montage of pictures (clockwise from top left).
1: cormorants (sp)
2: Seals (trust me)
3: Birds on a Rock
4: Puffin Nests.
Everyone was incredibly friendly and, as an 11 year old girl, I felt very safe - we were even allowed to go off on our own (in groups of at least three) - something they would never do such a short time after!
As always, click on any of the pictures for a larger view, or go here to view the original photos.

Oh Hadrian's Wall and Kevin's Tree!! I will have to tell Karen, she's been there, and my other friends messaged me from the Wall a fortnight ago!!~ I live vicariously through other people!! Nice school excursion. I went to a convict island. No contest there!!!By 2paw, at Thursday, 13 July, 2006
I think we did the self same trip when I was at school. I loved every moment, especially the boat across to the Farnes and watching the seals. Now, as a teacher, I cringe at the thought of all the things that could have happened to us:) and the risk assessment paperwork that would have to be undertaken to even think about such a trip these days.By Gill, at Sunday, 23 July, 2006
