Wind and rain has given way to wind and sun, and most of the week we were working under an incredible sky. We are , in a way, back to square one, as we are back to the hard and heavy work, mainly removing large lumps of granite. But evidently, we have learned from the previous side, and are much more effective as well as dividing the work in what suits us both best.
Raphael Beil, with his long arms, has great reach and works on the large flows from the outside, whereas I refer to myself as the "Welsh miner", sitting on top of the block digging trenches...
It works a treat, and we are making good progress, under an umbrella of blue sky and, at times, almost comical clouds.
