Well, let’s try this again shall we? “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again” as Wynt and Kidd said in Diamonds Are Forever. Not that I go around quoting Bond villains all the time, but that’s a good mantra when you try something and it falls flat on it’s backside.
This blog began as an attempt on Blogger to unify my youtube videos with a blog, both powered by Google, but could I even find it when I googled it? NOT. A. CHANCE. So here we go again on WordPress, where I’ve been for three years and one month, finally able to spread my wings and SOAR!
As I am particularly fond of the Grieg sketch with Andre Previn from Morecombe and Wise, as Eric said- “I’m playing all the right notes, not necessarily in the right order, I’ll give you that sunshine!” So here you’ll find me referring in the videos to hikes I have already done, but not shared yet.
The Battle of the Atlantic Commemoration is one of my favourites, and as it was the only ‘event’ this year that I have managed to almost completely cover, thought it would be a spectacular start.
Actually, it’s something I’m pretty chuffed with, especially the end sequence with the Fly-by. I’m glad the Hurricane and Spitfire flew past three times, as the last time I got a pretty good close up.
I also had a great time on the tour of the HMS Edinburgh and managed to get a few pictures of Tiglet on there, which came in useful later on for Episode 3 Of Tiglet’s Time Travels Series 4- Return to the Battle of the Atlantic
So it was a brilliant event, just a shame I didn’t go back on Sunday, but what a weekend it was.
You can even follow these epic adventures on the Facebook page, as well as Tiggy’s usual shenenigans, and the new tales coming soon!
Next time- The First Videoblog on Pex Hill back in February!
