February 2022. Tay estuary walk at Newburgh.

We had a lovely walk through fields by the Tay at Newburgh on a beautiful blue sky day. It looked good enough to swim but was just above freezing!

December 2021

We finally went to visit Drumderg wind farm which we see from the top of the hill in our local park in Perth. It was a day of glorious blue skies with the snow clad high peaks gleaming in the background. Nice to see cattle on the farm too.

We had a glorious week in Glen Affric, home of the most complete Caledonian Pine forest in Scotland. The twelve mile walk round the loch was tiring but well worth the effort.

July 2021 Summer cloud

In July we had some cloud on the ground mornings and went for a forest walk around Binn Hill above the River Tay. Summer mists rather than autumn mists.

June 2021 at the beach.

On the first sunny day of summer we went to the seaside for the fist time in a long time. We walked some of the Fife Coastal Path between Elie and St Monans. So much blue sky and sea!
