Mr Snappy

Mr Snappy

    Remains of an old boat in the Cromarty Firth.  We tell the kids that it's Mr Snappy and he keeps a look out for naughty children.  The older two don't believe that anymore but the 3 year old still does  ???

    Ha ha...I never heard it called that before...but I remember this boat from early 70's and it's not deteriorated much at all...must be salt preservation ha ha...and now Mr Snappy keeps seals company that never used to have a home there in those days.  I think there are two wrecks there aren't there !

    I just like rattling the bars o' her cage every now and again Debra,keeps her on her toes!!..I must have an evil streak in me a mile wide ??? :(
    A couple of links to the wreck Debra http://www.ambaile.o...sp?item_id=3930 and http://www.geograph....uk/photo/589924   I think it's said that the harbour fees at Cromarty went up by a lot of money and rather than pay the fees the zulu owners dumped the boats on the shore at Ardullie as they weren't using them anyway, something like that anyway.  

    And as for you young ronnie, I'm just biding my time, I'll get my own back on you yet, watch your back  ???

    The first thing you'll have to do then is take these big size 10 clumpers of wellies off your feet... you'll never manage tae snuck up quietly behind me with them on!  I'll stay on my guard,but if I feel a sharp pain between my shoulder blades I'll know it's you in yer slippers ???
