Imagine if I found oil on our smallholding? Apparently a landowner owns the land but the government owns the rights to any mineral deposits. So I don't think I will ever become a Beverly Hillbilly. There will be no Texas tea for us. So we'll have to settle for a 'nice cuppa tea' instead.
Here's another picture of Bantry Bay taken from our 'new' (recycled) patio. My late grandmother used to say:
"The view won't feed you."
It is gobsmacking beautiful but I wish I could get an helicopter to pick it up and carefully place it down in Cornwall or Herefordshire. Might have a problem with the sea though.
