Another pedal, another tootle!

Today’s guest picture comes from Jenni, my Highland correspondent.  We have been having some good sunrises here and may be there is something in the air at the moment because she had a spectacular one too. It was another cold day with the thermometer hanging about the 5 degree mark at best but a nippingContinue reading “Another pedal, another tootle!”

It was still pretty cold in theContinue reading “At last, a tootle and a pedal”
