Swinging at Vargellas

A couple of pictures from my September visit to the Fladgate partnership in September, which I've just been sent by Andy Costello, who took them. The first is of me trying to drive the Douro. I reckon the carry must be about 250-270 yards. It's a big ask. I creamed a couple, as did Andy, and they fell just short. I think this picture is of one that wasn't hit so cleanly. The second is treading in the lagares at Vargellas late one evening. I'm at the back, sort of in the middle, with the really big hand prints on my shirt. It was a fun trip.

I was there the week after you Jamie (nice poem by the way!) and someone from the trip managed to drive the river - they were so keen that the morning after failing they got up early to have another go!

The person in question was sadly quite the most annoying person on the trip, and this just made him more unbearable!
