Painting Progress? You Must Be Joking....

Hobby time?

Not when there's sunshine and real things to see and do.

Yesterday I treated mysef to a little jaunt to Pendennis Castle, Falmouth all tied in with a small coastal walk.  I love the South West.

The disappearing gun.  Look them up and if you ever get the chance, see the working Montcrieff type at Crownhill Fort, Plymouth.  It used to be blank fired annually by volunteers from the Royal Armouries' Fort Nelson team.  Basically, the gun is loaded and prepped under cover, levered into position for firing and the recoil brings it back in to cover again.

The Half Moon battery.
