As the crow flies, or given the location, as the seagull flies, the distance from Durlston Castle to Anvil Point Lighthouse is about 1000 metres. Without any foreknowledge the walker can see the lighthouse from the castle and, as in my case, set off in high expectation of a reasonable walk.
I must apologise as it has been over a month since I last updated everyone about life here at Omar Towers. Since then there has been a General Election (the less said about that the better), Christmas, New Year, rain and mysterious viruses afflicting the Servants.

The nearest I have got to expressing such support is when I have openly declared that I have agreed with what a Conservative Member of Parliament has said independent of the party line.
The opportunity was too good to miss. A chance for Bryn and I to take part in a two hour photo shoot with professional equine photographers under the guidance of the renowned equine photographer, Emily Hancock from The Training Barn based here in Ringwood in Hampshire.
In my previous diary (Omar’s Diary to 16th November 2019) I mentioned my concern that Man Servant was getting into a rut with his choice of newspaper.

I urged him to bring something different into the library here at Omar Towers.
The forthcoming General Election here in the UK on 12th December 2019 is one of the most important this country has had to endure let alone suffer. Aren’t they all?

Put those two elements into a constitutional petrie dish and there is bound to be a growth of that most dangerous of political viruses; boredom.
