Opening Gambit

Sometimes, writing this blog can be like a game of chess.

Coastguard Oscar has acquired a couple of photos of me this week and it'll only be a matter of time before they magically appear on these pages, no doubt with a witty and humourous caption.

Options are for me to wait patiently and have a ready made reply for when they appear, or to play a more attacking game and get in early with a photo of Oscar training the other day at Anvil Point.

Not sure what he's up to, but he seems pleased with himself.

Maybe he is pleased at having disovered his ability at spinning webs like a spider. It appeares he has a web coming from his bum to that tripod thingy (I'm sure you can tell me the technical term for it).

That would be the 'quad-pod', so 'tripod thingy' wasn't too inaccurate - just not enough legs.
...and it's used to give cliff lines (ropes) a free and smooth passage over the cliff edge to prevent fraying and other damage.
