    Default Trip out with Hugo & Rock Monkey - Pics

    Enjoyed a cracking day out today with Hugo & Rock Monkey, we went up the woods with a view to doing some carving and searching for some Pyrite and of course to have a right old laugh as well.

    Few pics

    Bit misty walking in



    heading up the hill towards the "Carving Tree"





    Looking down slope from the " Carving Tree"





    Hugo did us proud for Breakers





    then we did a bit of carving, before we knew it, it was time for lunch, so i made us some Banana pancakes, then some Apple pancakes, then some plain ones





    Nobody died after eating them so they must have been ok?



    i forgot to keep taking photo's, so the result of a few hours up the woods



    from the left, spoon bowl & spoon - by Rock Monkey, spatula, spoon, spatula - by me, spatula & four spoons by Hugo - the man is a spoon carving machine, cant keep up with him, mind you he didnt sand them properly, so they dont count

    Before long it was time to pack up and take a very leisurely wander back to the cars



    oh yes, we found one piece of Pyrite between us
    It may look like im not doing anything, but at the cellular level im really quite busy.

    Oh yes folks, Hugo cut a stick as well

    Mind you it will make a superb stick when its finished, one of those rare ones that is almost straight right off the tree.

    Forgot to say thanks for the kind remarks about the knife projects that I showed you guys, also for the re modelling of the small whittler, all it needs now Mark is a Good Sanding and another coat of oil.
