Going nuts

Today’s guest picture from Bruce got a little closer to the horse in the field.  There turned out to be two of them. The forecast was right and we had another sunny day but it was even colder than yesterday and struggled to get above 3°C all day. Mrs Tootlepedal and I gave up anyContinue reading “Going nuts”

Ecclefechan and squirrels

Today’s guest picture is a charming bridge crossed by some of my siblings last week. I can’t remember where it is but I can confirm that they came to it before they crossed it.

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”
