Minnowburn Day

I have spent four hours today at Minnowburn, a National Trust property near Belfast, with six other volunteers.

Alas, I was the only volunteer from the Strangford Lough & Ards group.

Our task today was to remove the loose stones from a decrepit wall near the Warden's office in preparation for rebuilding.

It remained dry till lunchtime, when the rain arrived and play was called off.

Tomasz, one of the rangers, brought us all into the old barn afterwards, where he was creating a wooden sculpture of an oak-leaf, which will be used as a bench-seat.

I am not worthy. You folks are wonderful. Yet another days hard graft repairing an NT property. You are protecting our heritage for generations to come. I so admire you. Love Mx

I used the lovely little Ixus 510 HS for those pics. :-)
