Friday




Good Afternoon, quite a change in the weather today rainy windy and cold what a change for the rest of the week. We have had cloudless skies for four days with a keen easterly wind a bit cool because of it, but good enough to sit out in the garden or a day away for a picnic just what we did the other day.
On Monday we decided to take the benefit of a lovely day and take ourselves for a much needed break away. We headed up to Crieff had morning coffee and a wander round the visitors centre and plant centre bought a nice new handbag (purse) in a beautiful tapestry with lots of different colours so will go with most things. From there we headed to Loch Turrett home of the famous Grouse Distillery. Just parked up here foo a bit and took a few photographs.

This is a picture of a big grouse the symbol of the Whisky it take pride of place in the car park. Grouse Whisky is one of the most popular whiskies in Scotland an lovely it is too, with a bit of dry ginger.
From there we headed to Loch Turrett by way of of the glen this is where the water comes from to make the whisky. I have never been here before but Stuart has he came here fishing with my Dad the day my Mum and I went for my wedding dress so it must have been forty seven years ago. There has been a big dame built there since then and at the moment they are building a big water treatment plant hope they don't spoil the water for the distillery.We had a super day really refreshed us and to think we were only about thirty miles from home. I have had great problems uploading pictures today all sorts of problems and have run out of time will have to think up another way to do this till next time Bye for now Love Joan.

Oh my looking at those stepping stones across the water, I wondered did you do it??? Glad you were able to get out and enjoy the weather even though you've rain today. A new handbag is always a good thing! I have so many, I think I could open up my own shop. I never wear one out before getting a new one. It is delightfully warm and sunny here but the weekend will bring some rain and cooler temps for us. I enjoyed the pictures as always.

Hi Joan - Glad you're getting out and about. Down here in Lincolnshire we've forgotten what the sun looks like! We know all about east winds though.

love, Angie, xx

Beautiful pictures as always Joan. I am glad that you are feeling better and getting out! We've had pretty nasty weather here for the past two days.
