Good Afternoon,this morning Stuart had an appointment at the hairdresser to have his hair cut at 9-45am. It was a lovely morning so I decided to tag along do a few errands in the village them meet up with Stuart again and we would have a walk down the Loch Side. When we arrived there it was very cold the thermometer in the car was reading 5c that's about 40f. and a brisk north westerly wind was blowing..
I think I have mentioned before that the council are building a cycle/walking tail right around the loch side. We are just about there now only about three miles to go it is going to be wonderful once it is finish. It is fine for us walking just now as we would not be able to get right round as it is going to be twelve and a half miles, what a day out it will be for the good walkers and the cyclists.
As we walked it was very encouraging to see even at that time of the morning a good few people we out walking with and without dogs mother and daughter on bikes and a couple on a tandem. We had a tail wind this morning which helped us along our way. We turned in at a side turning that takes you right down to the side of the loch where they have built a state of the art bird watching hide. On that path there is the remnants of an old fishing boat I took a photograph the last time we were down but it did not turn out as the light was not good that day but today I was pleased with the result today.
We had a few minutes sitting in the hide it was all very tranquil this morning with the ducks and swans swimming and diving in front of us.
After our short rest we headed back to the car and home to a nice pot of coffee and a read of the paper for Stu and a read of some blogs for me. Till next time I hope you enjoyed walking with me where I live. Love Joan.
