Sometimes you just know you're being watched..!!

Sometimes instinct tells you there are a set of eyes watching you, even when your back is turned.

During a recent visit to the bathroom in The Dive Inn, i had just that instinctive feeling (not that one!!)...

Thankfully, this has not been the case so far.
