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!
