Walking around our area again...

25 comments


This morning we walked the dogs around the fishing ponds at Kingennie Resort, which is visible from our back door across the fields.

Oliveoil might remember being taken for a quick coffee there once before catching her train back to Lincs.

Sorry, no pics of the dogs…they were far too busy sniffing. And it is a dreich day here today. We always have to pay for two days of warm sunshine with a coastal Har (Fog). But tomorrow will be lovely again and I can cope with that.

Just three photos then of one of the ponds, but you can see lots more about this place on the link above. Enjoy!

Very nice and peaceful looking Karen and a great place to walk the dogs.
It's grey and overcast here today, too. I feel guilty as Shirley and hubby are going to RHS Wisley today and I told her it was gonna be a lovely day...oh dear, I jinxed the weather!

Lovely peaceful walk Cottagekaren. I was down the lane at 6.30 this morning and it was misty but so tranquil. It just sets you up for the day.

It looks really lovely Karen. What a great place to walk.

Very nice Karen, we do have some really lovely places for a wander don't we...

I do remember that Karen it was a lovely place had not realised that was where the cottage was though. How lovely to be able to walk in such a beautiful area. You are very fortunate to have such a lovely place close by. I dare not walk down our path along the edge of the wood any more as we have people live rough in the wood and lots of strangers wandering down there. It can be quite scary when I am by myself. Hope you called in for coffee and cakes before going back home or is that not allowed now! lol :O)

No Mum, no coffee and cake today. I've lost nearly 2 stones now :))

Well done that girl! keep up the good work. :O)

Thanks....it's not easy :Z

Ah! I see some loosestrife at the edge:)

That looks so beautiful and tranquil, Karen. However, please don't talk of diets to me. I've been on the 5 -2 diet now for almost 12 months, and although I haven't gained at all, I've not lost either. So frustrating :(( My OH, tells me this must be my 'fighting weight' which doesn't help. (((

A lovely place to walk indeed.....

What a beautiful place, even on a grey day. Hope the sun shines for you soon. It's pretty grey here today...

Yes, very grey here today too...and very cold as well. :((

Well done keeping up with your diet. Impressive! It has been a bit cold here today but tomorrow has to be warm.

Well, we awoke to thick fog...but the sun is getting through it layer by layer. :)

We have had warm and mainly sunny weather these last couple of days. I'm not torturing myself by looking at this week's Cromarty weather, so don't tell me!

Its been lovely up there Melchi. it's only here its been dire all year.

11 Sep, 2015

 

Actually, the Cromarty people told us they'd had an awful summer - one of the worst they could remember. And they usually have good weather because of the position (rather like we do here) It's just been one of those years...

12 Sep, 2015

 

What a shame. I genuinely thought it had been much better up there. :(

12 Sep, 2015

 

Never mind, Karen. It is a most beautiful place to me - I just love it. I confess to being a real "places" person (well, I'm a geographer, so places, maps and coloured pencils all make me very happy!) I am sorry for the children, though. The lady in the little shop said it was the first time her daughter had returned to school with pale skin.

My friend has a weekend/holiday house in Helmsdale and she keeps on telling me it's been lovely up there on their long weekends. Mind you, that's a lot further north still than Cromarty, so perhaps you should have gone further up!

Too late, Karen, too late!

13 Sep, 2015

 

Yes indeed. If only we didn't need to plan these things....if we had a mobile home like Kath, we could just go where the sun shines! :)

14 Sep, 2015

 

That's right! She's having a great time, isn't she?

15 Sep, 2015

 

She certainly seems to be enjoying life! :)
