Chaplog tries hard In which an ageing climber comes to terms with life closer to the ground.


Farne Islands

We have waited a long time to see these little birds. We were in the right place at the right time. The Arctic terns were not so pleased to see us. We took a short boat trip to a Farne Island.

God’s Own County – Northumberland

Filed under: General — Mike Chapman @ 8:24 pm

I have been here a lot of times. The sky is big, driving is fun, the climbing is on a small scale yet exhilarating and it is beside the sea. It rained all Saturday so we stopped off at the YSP and looked at the David Nash work that was inside and out of the rain. It rained most of Sunday and then the sun came out. Haley, Pete, Mike, Lynne, Ali and Mike hired a house in Wooler and most of us did a lot of climbing.
