Mrs Tootlepedal pops out to the post

No flower of the day today as there are too many other photos. It has been a busy day which started as so many days do with a ride round the morning ride with Dropscone. This was a stately affair as I was on the slow bike (the road bike is in for repair) and the wind, though light, was unfriendly.  After lunch and making the bread for the B&B breakfast, I was pleased when Mrs Tootlepedal suggested that we should go by bike to deliver a letter. Off we went to a farm near Gair schoolhouse, a mere ten and a half miles away. It was  a lovely day and the pace was steady and after two and a half hours and 21 miles the letter was safely delivered and we were home for a nice cup of tea. I took the camera along and you can see a gallery of the trip below.

Then in the evening, because it is Summer Fair night in Langholm, we went up to the Market Place to hear the Town Band play and as usual the high spot is the playing of Highland Cathedral with the Pipe Band.

Then back home to wait for the flute band and the pipe band to parade through the streets.
A beautiful evening light made the day very satisfactory in all respects.
