Afternoon lovely people - I've only been away a little while and you've filled pages with your chat!
Gorgeous photo Pat - glad you've had a nice day and a relaxing evening. That's what life's all about really, isn't it?
And DD - you'll have loads of those to come. I promised you that before, and us fairies don't lie about that stuff
Hope you're feeling a bit better soon BL. The wet weather won't help - always makes you feel worse I think.
Short outing today - could have been shorter if I hadn't been fighting the 'breeze'. Who mentioned it not being windy any more....
I thought of nipping along to Ben Donich as well, as I didn't get out last week, but decided just to come home. I can get some more painting done.
The wet last night turned to ice, so the car needed scraping and I had to be careful with the roads till I got nearer Paisley when the temp got up into plus figures. The benefit of that is that the boggy lower slopes of the hill were nice and crunchy, so the boots didn't get too wet. Got some nice photos - I think - but the ones from the summit might be a bit blurry - it was hard to keep it still. The frozen white stuff/hail was coming in and out, although the neighbouring summits were getting the worst of it. It's good for scouring the face though - who needs a facial scrub anyway....
I shall have a quick catch up while I have a cuppa, and do the pix, but here's a little one of The Brack on the way up the hill, with a louring sky overhead
