Snail Mail

This is the nearest I will get to stamps this weekend as I cannot match the lighthouse theme on Sunday Stamps II.

Early breakfast was disrupted one day earlier this week by the arrival of - 

Snail climbing up the kitchen window
Fortunately it was outside - 5ft from the ground.

From a different angle it still looks the same.

Slowly does it.

If it's trying to get into space

It has a long way to go (view from outside)
I had to let in into the secret that it would never reach the escape velocity required to take it into space.

The only lift-off it achieved was when I plucked it off the window and deposited in a garden refuse bag. It should take it a month to eat its way out of there.
