Made it!

 We made it to Scotland! I choose this picture because Gary was far enough away that you can't see I'm opening a bottle to celebrate. Er, so now you don't know about that ...
Couldn't decide which cliched Scottish image to go with, but I was very taken with the hinges on a historic house we visited.
I haven't really done any writing, but we're having a wonderful time - and we've received a very warm welcome.

    1. 'What bottle' Exactly! I quickly disposed of the evidence!

  3. That's quite a way from the south coast. We lived in Scotland for 4 years and loved it. Enjoy the rest of your trip, and hope the weather holds for you

    1. We're still on the south coast, Maggie - just not the English one!

  4. You'd better hurry back, Patsy, or after the vote, you may find you're abroad without a passport...

    1. Actually we have them with us, Frances - although not because of the referendum.

    1. Everyone has been very friendly, Rosemary. Everyone also seems to love their country and suggests great places to visit. Ask for suggestions in England and a lot of people will claim there's nowhere nearby worth seeing.

    1. I am enjoying it, Alex (and I did some writing this morning too)

  8. Looks like so much fun.

    Do you like to journal? Even with pictures, it's still all creative fun. Though I agree with Alex, nothing wrong with not working and just enjoy being on holiday.

    1. I am keeping a journal of the trip - just a few notes really. The pictures are the main record and we're taking lots!

    2. That's a great way to tell a story -- through pictures!

    1. I think they'd been there a while, Oscar so we gave them a miss.

    1. We have eaten some good food here, Lizy - though none inside any castles.

    1. It wasn't taken inside the van, Maggie - just in case you thought we were travelling in a TARDIS.
