Lovely, Liz!

Here was our excitement last week. After years of umming and ahhing and organising we finally got some drillers in to put a bore down at the house. The end result was a brilliant supply of water but there were a few worries along the way. The driller said that everything that happened has happened to him once or twice before .. just not all on the same day. crazy

Loooove the starlings, Christinap, and Copago, I can only imagine how the installation of a bore hole for you must be a really big thing! Very impressive looking machinery in any case!

Many years ago in the property that I lived in with my ex we had to have a borehole sunk, they went down about 130 feet I think. How far did you have to go down?

This narrow boat is now being used as ferry in Bristol docks. A good way to beat the traffic!

Looks like you've been preparing to watch Blue Peter Sue.

I really like this petunia. The colour is so vibrant just a few of them give a quick lift to a bed.

They are a beautiful colour.

The bore ended up being 132 metres (433 feet) which is about what we expected based on another bore on the property but we can pump from about 8 metres down as the water has come up that far which is great.
Every 3 metres they put a bit of a sample out so they can see what sort of ground they're going through so I think I took this after the first morning.

What an amazing colour range Jill.

I might have to try that ferry at the weekend Martin, if it is close enough.

Oh, are you coming to Bristol Sue? It would be nice to meet up for a cup of tea or something.
The ferry leaves from the city centre near the Watershed complex - number 1 on the map:

(Other ferry services may be available...)

The final result of the bore, shown off by our model, Jinx ... with any luck next week we will have the pump to put down so we can actually get the water out! And pretty much then the work begins as we have an 8km pipeline to put off it.

Martin, Sara and I are flying to Bristol on Friday late afternoon then Sara will be heading for Gloucester and I will be heading for the Temple Meads Ibis, I will be going home Monday late afternoon. Sunday is the reason for the trip, I am going to a parchment craft exhibition at Brunel Old Station. Meeting up could be an option.

I've loved all the seal pictures, Howie. Thanks for putting them up.

I've loved everyone's birds too - always nice to see the babies!

Copago, please give the gorgeous Jinx a ruffly pat on the head from me.

Sunday afternoon/evening would be best for me (though I might be a bit hungover). Saturdays are especially busy as I have my weekly shopping to do plus I visit my brother who's still in hospital, recovering from a major operation last month. In the evening, I go to a pub which features live local bands & don't get home till late. (Disgusting, at my age! cool ) As I don't drive, I'm dependant on Bristol's patchy bus service. crazy
I'm sure there must be a cafe near the Brunel Old Station, I'll look into it.
I'll PM you with my mobile number.

Oh ren, I've only just clicked on your link to the most handsome Cornishman ever, and I have to say, I agree with you! Fabulous photo!
