Alan Bennett

Ruff, Becoming Very Ruff

A little vid to pay humble homage to The Shipping Forecast

Viking….. South Utsire…… North Utsire…. Dogger…. Humber… Trafalgar… Lundy …. Fair Isle….

so many names…. sailing in from somewhere we sort of remember but can’t quite fathom …

…. all these sea places…… wrapping themselves around us and our little island…..

…. German Bight….. Shannon…. Rockall…. Bailey…. Faeroes…. all there….

….to make us known…… to keep us safe…..

….. and then of course theres Alan Bennett to ruff up the winds in the waves….
