We have been away for a few days...

... in Scotland. The first year we stayed in Gatehouse of Fleet the rain was really heavy and we spent most of our main day trying to dodge the rain. Last year we thought we would make the best of it went out in our wet weather gear and although it did not rain too much we had to navigate to big puddles. However this year the sun shone and the only water our feet paddled through was the sea.

Biddle and Gardiner Bunny enjoyed playing on the rocks.

We did a slightly different walk this year to Carrick shore and on the way back called in at The Cream o' Galloway for well earned ice cream before the long walk back.

over the last few days we have seen plenty of these

and these

We have walked here

We climbed Vennie Hill

for a nice view

All in all a good little break away from the hustle and bustle

Thanks if you commented last blog. I didn't get time for individual replies
