Woodman's Cottage126 viewsThis is the cottage at the entrance to Lord's Wood. According to our title deeds, recorded at Land Registry, the property line runs along the right-hand side (eastern) of Woodman's Cottage. The red line in this photograph approximates the boundary, so it would appear --- subject to further work by our surveyor --- that the trees, etc. to the right of the line are part of our property.

Front of Woodman's Cottage126 viewsAs best we can tell, the front boundary of Woodman's Cottage is circa 8.9 meters from the front (south) of the Woodman's Cottage garage. This photograph was taken from the west, facing towards the east. Marjorie is standing behind the hedge at the point 8.9 meters south of the front of the cottage. Assuming we're correct (and our surveyor is checking this now) the area to the right (south) of the red line is our property.

Cars Parked at Lord's Wood Cottage213 viewsThe old (apparently Victorian) chicken coop is shown by the red arrow on the right. Our deeds to the Lord's Wood track show that the boundary line runs next to this chicken coop. The fence line is considerably to the east of this wall.

Gretel63 viewsGretel is a standard wire-haired Daschund. She was only here one day --- and was a lot of fun. In this photo she's managed to get on top of the (dog-proof) swimming pool cover.

Is This Worcestershire? Or the Maasai Mara?101 viewsWe couldn't catch the Highland cow or Highland steer having tried everything. We finally called the West Midland Safari Park and Bob Lawrence, their Head Warden, came out to assist us "dart" the cattle. This photo was taken in sunny Worcestershire on a December afternoon --- not the Mara.

Steer With the Dart in His Shoulder179 viewsHe ran and ran and ran, and ultimately needed a little bit of a "top up" of the tranquliser.

Bob Lawrence Using Air Rifle To Shoot the Steer127 viewsThis is actually the moment that the dart hit the steer (UK302940500041). You can see him losing his step on the right of the photograph, with the red tip of the dart showing. Bob Lawrence, from the West Midland Safari Park, has just fired the air rifle.

Dar Al Masyaf - Daytime169 viewsThe view from our "boat stop" on the canal system at the Dar Al Masyaf villas, with Marjorie waiting for the next boat. The top of the Burj al Arab Hotel can just been seen peeking over the top of the Madinat Jumeirah.

Dar Al Masyaf - Night Time259 viewsThis is the view from our "boat stop" on the canal system at the Dar Al Masyaf villas. To get to dinner we waited for a boat to pick us up. The ride to the souk only took a few minutes. Now that's civilised!
burj-view.jpg
Burj al Arab Hotel274 viewsThe Burj al Arab Hotel -- Tower of the Arabs -- rises above the Madinat Jumeirah. We spent our first night in Dubai at the Burj al Arab, and then spent three nights in a villa suite in Dar Al Masyaf, part of the Madinat Jumeirah. (I found this part confusing, too.)
