We had a lovely sunset last night… made all the more special by the receding cloud.
It was calm and peaceful as there’s not a a breath of wind…. Barely a sound apart from the neighbours smooth rock which played from early afternoon to the back of 10pm. 🤦🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️🥴😬😆
The mountains are even more spectacular which you can appreciate their true height. This Camping and Caravanning Club campsite is surrounded by mountains like a giant walled garden. It’s breathtaking…. And today it is very, very hot!!
It just goes to show that the cloudier weather we have had is so much better for the dogs.
Thankfully we have a bush (stop it!) right at our pitch so they are able to shelter in the shade. They have a basin of water to drink or sit in!!
I scoffed at my poor sister in law once for buying a cooling mat for her dogs and yet here I am the proud owner of 3 of them. You may notice from the above pic that neither of the dogs chooses to lie on one of them. 🤦🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️😆 I… on the other hand have used them for my feet….. they are really cooling!!
This is my view just now. I’m crocheting and writing as the day goes on.
Sadly Bhruic has her usual camping affliction… the runs…. And this morning has been sick too. Craig was up 3 times in the night with her and Freya and I only heard her once. They are so used the run of a long garden that I wonder if it’s the being tethered on a campsite that stresses them out?
We took the dogs for a lovely walk up to another viewpoint this morning.
So it would appear our neighbours are listen to the radio station”Mellow Magic”… “timeless, relaxing classics” …. now there’s nothing offensive about it at all but we do not want to listen to it. I am on holiday and want to listen to a whole lot of nothing. It started at 12.10pm and if yesterday is anything to go by it’s gonna be on until after 10pm. I may have to go for another walk!!
So in the space of time between writing this above and now, we are now home. The dogs were very hot and miserable being tied up so we packed up in the heat of the day and headed down the road. Both drivers and passenger windows right down and the blower on full. Even then the van said 30C inside. Super toasty.
I have spent the last 3 days grumbling about it not being sunny…. Sun comes out and we have to go home. I’m not gonna lie, there was a spoiled child having a hissy fit tantrum inside of me as we packed up.
But…. (Never start a sentence with but…..) we have had a lovely time. It was lovely to catch up with Stuart and Lee, lovely to spend the day together in Glencoe and then have our BBQ. Things don’t always go as we plan but that doesn’t mean it’s all ruined. I’ve been cross with the dogs, why is life always so difficult because we have dogs I can’t change that so really there is no point being angry about it. They are much happier now that they are home.
My co-pilot took some pics on the drive home. Apart from the intense heat, it was a truly stunning drive, through Glencoe itself, across Rannoch Moor, down through Tyndrum to Crianlarich and down the side of Loch Lomond.
So all home and present and correct. Until the next time!
Stay safe everyone 🌞⛰🌞
