Back from the cricket Jan , I did pop into Lake Panic a couple of times ( the times when I was in the right place at the wrong time) , the Fish Eagles were not very friendly, to me anyway, but I will have a few pics to drop in here soon :thumbs_up:
I hate it when the voices in my head go silent.......I never know what they are planning. :roll:

So when is old enough to know better supposed to kick in ?
