Message for Simon
I went out of my way to "bag" that minor lump known as OTT MOUNTAIN on the Western Mournes today only to discover that it ain't listed on this site. Its no more or less separate from its peers than most of the rest. It appears to be 500 plus metres above sea level. So how come its not on the list ? Its enough to drive one to drink.******Satisfy your cravings with the odd Ott : from Vertigo Industries--http://www.domaines-ott.com/en/homepage/index.php...PS Welcome Buny Clare...Does Buny rhyme with Runny, or with Puny? Just curious...Buny, take no offence. I am in shocking bad form.Tomorrow I return to the abominable Day Job...23 years of torture. I didn't have the courage to follow my natural talent and become a Professional HillWalker. But enough of me...Meanwhile we have chosen our theme song after a bitter five hour meeting: "Do you know the way to San Jose?" Seems the good San Jose folk are bursting themselves to make a continuous trail from San Francisco... I have resigned from the Sub-Committee (http://www.sanjoseca.gov/prns/trailmap%20info%200703.htm)

Visited in 2014. There's a sandy beach and a solid pier with slipway and a picnic table facing the mainland. The road from the pier all the way thru the village is a robust concrete one, but it's ...
