Michele has been busy recently, interviewing people and being interviewed herself in return by radio 4. She tells me that it will be 'out' in Jan 2007. so we will keep you posted as to the exact times. Maybe I can get a link to the radio 4 web so we can all hear her. She will be talking about the book, which is progressing well. The program is all about Eel Pie island and is a must for any one remotely connected with it .
With the fine weather we have been having I was inspired to take a few shots of the island. Its drain off time so the river looks different. It is time to get down in the mud for a bit of prospecting,have a wee look for the ancient artifacts as are reported to lie there a plenty. Mostly I found stolen bikes and a trolley. I was told that the ancient stuff would look a lot less obvious, and be smaller, mostly. Was hoping for a whole fort or two.
Have a look in the photo section for my shots of island life, cheers Susan
P.S. we would live to hear from you about your experiances of Eel Pie, and also we are trying to put together a set of photographs/ images of past times on eel pie island. It would be fantastic to see your pics.
