Put the flags out
We were down in Ocean Terminal, spending the contents of my wallet (on essentials like new luggage and red wine), and I expressed the view that, despite my various moans (about knees, work and now my blasted eye), I'm actual pretty contented at the moment. This is the message these flags are meant to convey. The risk is, of course, that the message they are conveying is something like "bugger off" ;-). But as I'm as ignorant of nautical flags as I am of statistics and horticulture, I'll never know, will I?
As you can see, we haven't made it out of Auld Reekie today, but we plan to tomorrow, assuming the weather holds. Today is for domesticia.
