Scary but satisfying

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who managed to find some splendid blossom on a recent permitted walk. Although the forecast for today was for a worse day than yesterday, it was in fact just as good a day, not quite so warm in the morning when it was cloudy but sunny andContinue reading “Scary but satisfying”

Knees on display

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by Dropscone and shows the opening day of the golf season at Langholm.  Dropscone, the club captain this year,  is modestly holding the trophy which his team has just won in the opening match. We had an unquestionably pleasant day of weather here today, with wall to wallContinue reading “Knees on display”

Busy but dull day

The guest picture from Tony shows the clouds over the Forth that make his post-dog-walking welly rack, which was featured yesterday, a necessity. I had an untypical day today as it was almost all given over to useful and necessary activity which didn’t involve walking, cycling or taking pictures.  We spent most of the dayContinue reading “Busy but dull day”

We had a grey morning and a wet afternoon here today so it wasn’t really the day for a gentle pedal withContinue reading “A tootling treat”

A Shaw thing

Today’s guest picture is another from Venetia’s African odyssey.  She is putting a full account of the trip on her blog which can be found here. Yesterday’s rest had improved my foot a little but as there is still some way to go, I had another day where I didn’t venture out of house orContinue reading “A Shaw thing”

B picture

Today’s colourful guest picture comes from my sister Mary who recently visited the Isabella Plantation in Richmond Park, London. Apart from a couple of brief showers, we had a much better day today.  It wasn’t a lot warmer in theory but a very welcome break from the recent strong winds made it feel a lotContinue reading “B picture”

A worthwhile excursion

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by my much travelled friend Bruce.  No prizes for guessing where he was today. Dropscone and I set out on a somewhat less glamorous journey than Bruce.  We were on our bicycles on the way to Gair and back after breakfast.  The roads were dry, the temperature wasContinue reading “A worthwhile excursion”
