    Another entrepreneur (or perhaps even the same person?) in Alligin had a dig and weigh your own vegetable plot. Pototoes seemed to be the only thing ready, having missed such delicasies as broad beans and peas, nor were the runner beans ready. There did seem to be a fair few things available to dig when in season. There were even exotic mushrooms!!!

    What a great idea. Unfortunately, no-one was digging and weighing whilst we were there.

    When you get to the phone box in Alligin, take a look at the unique bus shelter you'll find there!!! Somone with a great sense of humour has gone to a lot of trouble to make sure waiting for the bus is a pleasant experience. (I can't even imagin a a bus passing this way but I guess it does!!!)

    Inside a purpose grown little thicket of bamboo? is a plastic seat with a no smoking sign. A furry toy spider hangs down to keep you company and outside a sign tells you that it is graffiti free, has opaque viewing and is available for hire!!1 Wonderful. Just one problem; -it was not rainproof as the chair had a puddle on it's seat.

    We thought it a brilliant idea.
