      Hi Diane, I'm not a big page writer. Sometimes before or after a trip I get a little ambitious, but no often. doug

    Hi Doug. Thanks for saying hello, it was a great weekend wasn't it? I can't make the next one which is next weekend. I can't walk too much at the moment (torn muscles & ligaments) so I don't think I'd be up to another treasure hunt! I hope you're well. Emma
