Sunny Monday.2

Good Morning, I know it will be after twelve by the time you read this but it is morning for me. I did this entry last night and made a mess of things and did not have time to do it again.

We had a lovely walk yesterday in the sunshine it was a super day and we took the chance to have another walk down by the loch.  It is wonderful to have access to it after all the years we have been restricted to a few hundred yards.I read in our local newsletter that the new trail is being well used by the residents and I am sure come the better weather it will be busy at times.  Hope we well still be able to get a quiet walk during the week.

The photographs today were taken with my trusty old Nikon we did try to get some pictures with our new camera and scope but we need a lot of practice, not bad with views but with the wildlife its a different story.Yesterday every time I got set up the duck either dived or flew away it was very difficult but with a lot of patients we will get there. Stuart had some good results last week from the kitchen window but he was inside and not freezing to death like we have been outside. The picture above was taken by me from outside the bird hide the water is frozen and just liked the effect I got.

This next picture is of Bishop Hill and Loch Leven the water being calm enough to give a nice reflection. There is just a dusting of snow on the top.

I feel so fortunate to live in such a lovely area of Scotland it is not a rugged as it is further north it is more rolling here but it has its own beauty. I just wish I was going to be fit enough to walk all the way round the loch (just over 10 miles) when the trail is finished later this year.

That's if for today so till next time.  Love,

A ten mile walk is something I don't think I've ever done. I did do 5 miles once with the children when I was young, but I'm not so young anymore. At the time we took lunches with us and had a picnic on the way. Thanks for sharing the pictures of your outing. You do have some lovely views there.

Your photos are wonderful Joan!
I hope you are able to find the stamina for that ten mile walk eventually. What an achievement that will be. I will be rooting for you when you set off and when you return from it when that day comes. Good luck!
Hugs

I've passed Loch Leven, it's a beautiful place! I loved seeing your photos of it. I'd love to walk the whole trail. One of my staff is buying a car soon, he'd love to go to Scotland; maybe I could talk him into taking me and Andy too and we could try out the trail! Stay warm! Jeannette xx
