Day 420 camping for hardy campers 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️🙄😬☔️☔️☔️☔️☔️☔️☔️☔️☔️☔️☔️☔️☔️☔️☔️☔️☔️☔️

Well we are very lucky to have had 2 and a half lovely days as sometime last night the heavens opened and they have not yet closed…. the forecast……..

Pink is snow….. now that never happened but it would have been lovely if it did. That’s a whole lotta rain though.

So weather aside…. the poor puppers are all unwell today. They all have dodgy tummies and have had since about 10pm, 11.30pm, 12.35am, 2.23am…… ok so I’m making these times up but it really was on and off all night. At first we thought it was only Bhruic, then thought actually it was Calaidh and soon realised it was all 3 of them. God love them that none of them did anything in the van or tent. You have to be grateful for something!!!

So the rain falleth and the pups poopeth. Let’s leave that particular subject there though is is the focus of the whole day….. so far.

We ordered breakfast from the Bistro at the side of reception. We had a roll and Cockburn’s Haggis. Donald the owner said that they get it from a butcher in Dingwall. Highly recommended.

We came back up to watch a movie.

About 12.30 we thought we should try taking them out for a gentle walk.

It….. was….. torrential…. rain but very fresh and beautiful.

Very grey sky

The sluice gates
This was so atmospheric but doesn’t come out in the photo
A wee paddle… there was no crazy running around today
Kangaroo?!? Look at the horizon. So grey and misty
One man and his dog!
Calaidh quite happy paddling
Wispy tree
Mean and moody Loch Ness
Still playing with a stick
This was a lovely old mossy wall
Beautiful gorse
I was about to say this almost looks alive… what a ridiculous thing to say….
Still not liking the bridge mum
Cloudy cloudy cloudy!

It’s 13.43 and it has stopped raining…….

It started again at 13.54.

So I’ve had a productive afternoon and ordered our food shop for delivery tomorrow night and tried to write a food plan. I don’t find that easy or enjoyable but I’ve done it.

The sun came out at 16.10 and went back in again at 16.13…. it was a moment of excitement!

I’ve crocheted too. I counted 97 squares completed for my 144 square blanket and I must have done another 6 while we’ve been away. Slowly but surely!

Took the dogs for another walk… it’s still raining.

The River Foyers is in full flow. This is the same river that didn’t move at all the other night.
Bluebell rock
It’s got some current!
Love these wee flowers

So yeah today hasn’t been the easiest in the life of the happy camper but still lovely to be away. We’re damp, soggy and pooped (I grinned from ear to ear at that!!) but we’re still happy!

Stay safe everyone 💩💩💩 (sorry!)
