A long absence

I cannot quite imagine where all the time has gone since my last post. we had a lovely holiday as usual in Dumfries and Galloway with only one wet day. That meant we were able to explore the town of Dumfries. We usually only see the station and then the ride through town on the bus to Gatehouse.

We learnt a lot about Robert Burns. But my favourite museum was The Old Bridge Museum which had a dental surgery with equipment not too dissimilar to a modern one. We spent two of our days walking. Cairnsmoor was a bit of a challenge and sadly I didn't accomplish it, gave up before the top.

This is as far as we got. There was a bit of a time factor as we had to get back to the main road for the bus. I think Biddle and John might have carried on if I had not been there!
The second week we visited Morecambe for the day, Lytham St Anne's and Skipton.

Glad you had a lovely time and the weather behaved

Beautiful view Biddle is admiring. I enjoyed Morecombe when we visited last year.
