....................second

Nifty critters these little donkeys, once stripped of their heavy loads







Ideal for the terrain







Got to keep an eye out for the locals though

.....................Brian and Tanja were waiting on the arrival of a shock to replace Brian's leaking one. It eventually arrived






at about the same time that a bunch of pesky folk were nicking my driveway








I was about to call the cops when I remembered that for the sake of marital bliss, and domestic harmony, I had promised Juliet that she could have the river bed pebble driveway replaced with a gravel drive. Ooh, and seeing that we had some workers sorting out the drive they could extend the terracing at the same time. How on earth did I fall for that one?







"Ey up, where are you off to?"







Oh, I see!









Tanja saw it too. A first for the both of us. No health and safety police in these parts.









Brian, in the meantime, contemplated for a moment or two








before setting about fitting his new shock, fuel filters, seat covers and generally fettling the bikes for the long road ahead.

About time you sorted that driveway, now George can escape to the local bar.

.....................All jobs done it was time to do a bit of space saving. Yep, that's washing powder going from one container to another. Still, stops the grub tasting soapy. Not sure how the water/beer will taste though







Brian and Tanja have gone now. Next stop Konya, then Cappadocia then dodging the bad weather. Safe trip fellas. It was a pleasure


On the way to see how the builders were getting on I spotted a particularly large and fluffy grain of sand in the sandpit







Anyway, that's enough nonsense for now



Cheers,

So David, how does the Estate look now? The terrace big enough to boogie on down?

Hey Twofridges got a gang in whose actions spoke much louder than my words. 6 days for three terraces and a new drive. Top blokes Thanks to you and Minnie for the inspiration and, of course Minnie for the cuddle





Cheers,


Dickyb

Hi Phil,

Read your RR, http://www.adventurebikerider.com/fo...oes-maroc.html Great stuff and fab photos. Why not put it up on here instead of providing a link?

Welcome here any time if you do find yourself around these parts.

Cheers,

Dickyb
