             Recent months have brought a couple of enquiries as to whether I still detect the sands at Talacre and the quick answer is 'yes', I do.

             It's a wee while since I recovered anything worth shouting about from Talacre and having been hospitalised for a short while I laid off detecting for a week or two. Once I was back on my feet and getting out I did give Talace a bit of a going over but didn't see much point in posting loads of the same old same old.  Roll Eyes

            Last month my wife decided that I could do with a decent break and booked us a month on the Costa Blanca. Sadly, upon arriving in Villajoyosa at 0200 hrs, in the dark, we discovered that the address was correct but the accomodation was none existent. The rest of the story is somewhat drawn out and nightmarish but we survived and now are back in the UK and in need of a holiday to assist our recovery.
I am totally exhausted and drained!  Cry

            Once I have reorganised all my detecting gear I will be jetting down to Talacre to see if I can follow up on some of the earlier finds and their geographical relationships to each other.

             Just watch this space..................  Wink

Oh ! Poor Chris and Mrs Chris. What a terrible experience for you both.
Plus if youíd known we were going to have a heat-wave I sípose you might not have bothered anyway.
Still youíre home and safe now, which Iím sure will aid your recovery no end. You were missed, by the way.
Iím sure we all look forward to hearing about your further endeavours at Talacre. Just take it a step at a time. Whateverís there wonít go away. Itíll wait patiently for you.

Hi Val,
            tis good to be back in one piece and slowly getting back into the swing of things. The flippin gardens are looking like the day of the triffids and it will probably take an other month to get them back into shape and looking anywhere like neat.

            It's years since I seen British weather this hot and sunny. I think I will have to start working the gardens very early in the mornings and adopt the Spanish siesta system for the hottest part of the days.

                 Stay safe, stay well, and stay out of the noonday sun.

I can recommend the Spanish style Chris. Thatís what I have to do in these temps.
Too long outside makes me quite poorly.
Today I was up at 7am, did a couple of jobs then out with the dogs. Back by 10.30am, did a packed lunch for John (mad dogs comes to mind) to take up the air field.
Then, much to dogs disgust, got the grooming tack out and did 2 clips. Paid dividends, they are much cooler now. Tidied and vacuumed, then my lunch followed by a nice little nap. Canít beat it.
Trouble is you have to catch up later. Lawns havenít stopped growing, wish they would.
Realy glad to hear youíre on the mend and getting over you awful experience. Maybe a couple of hours this down Talacre, tides are right.
