Hello! I hope you have had a good few weeks and that you had a lovely time over Easter. Sorry to have been so quiet – there’s lots going on here and I’ll be able to start sharing a little more about the plans that are brewing soon. In the meantime I desperately wanted to have a catch up so today’s post is a wee sum-up of our recent outdoor activities……..photos of some of the beautiful places we’ve been lucky enough to spend time recently.
The first set of photos is from Easter Monday when we spent the day we spent pottering in Glen Feshie. It is a beautiful area right on the edge of the Cairngorms and much quieter than many of the other easily accessible spots near Aviemore. I have very happy memories of swimming in the river with my dad, in the pools at the beautiful Feshie Bridge. I guess it would have been around 15 years ago and after a hot and long day walking in the mountains, ticking off some Munros, the swim was such a welcome cool down…………days like that are quite rare so definitely to be remembered. This time the river was far too high, and cold, with snow-melt to contemplate swimming!
These photos were taken on walks from home over the last 2 or 3 weeks. The photo of Katie playing on the beach makes me laugh. The rest of us were watching dolphins but Katie, after a fairly cursory glance, started digging holes and playing. We realised that she doesn’t really remember a life where you couldn’t see dolphins on a regular basis – to her it is quite normal and so the fascination wears off pretty rapidly!
I don’t know what it is like with you but we’re still wearing winter jackets and, although the day length is so much longer (wonderful), it’s really quite cold out………..I’m sure some warmth will come eventually but I’m beginning to feel that it would be nice to go out without having to wrap up quite so well!
