...if you look in the right place!
Oh yes...the rectory turned upsidedown, every socket checked every likely and some unlikely corners searched...and it couldn't be found! Then, today, a ninety mile round trip to Kilkeel just in case it had been left there in August. Another house searched from top to bottom and still no sign of the missing object.
Where could it be? Into which drawer, box or other container would someone put a camera battery charger?
Having just about given up and decided that a new one might have to be purchased I decided to pack up the car and return to Belfast. That meant putting some things into the back and, there it was! The missing lead: neatly coiled under the seat.
How did it get into such an unlikely hidey-hole? Who knows?
Suffice to say that I'm now watching it do its job so that the camera is ready for the next trip out into the autumnal sunshine. All I had today was the mobile phone and the photographs aren't anything to write home about. There'll have to be a return journey to take some proper pictures.
Seek and you will find if you are looking in the right place!
