The Trip That Never Was

                       

Stuart and I were up with larks, well almost this morning for our trip out .  I have been a bit fed up these last few days with all the dull weather so we  planned last night that we would have a run in the car today up to Scone Palace. This is the second week we have been trying to get there.  Today seemed not too bad and we decided to get ready.  My windows were a bit steamed up this morning so could not see out all that well and the outside temperature was  -3.9c so a cold morning but we were sure things would get better.  So an hour later breakfasted showered hair done picnic made flask filled Stuart packed the car. He came in and said cold morning out there.  When I went out to the car the freezing fog had appeared from nowhere and we could hardly see across the road. Undeterred I got into the car followed by Stu then we both said together this is foolish its far too cold and we will never see anything in this weather.  Did not want to unpack the car again straight away so we decided just to go for a morning coffee at our local garden centre (I think we should buy shares up there). It is still very foggy now an its 1 o'clock so I don't think its going to lift today.  So that's the story of the trip that never was. Love and have a nice day.

Sorry you had to cancel the trip. I hope you'll be able to do it when the fog lifts! Jeannette.

Sorry to hear the weather stopped your trip out. We've been stuck in a lot of late because of the weather. Am hoping tomorrow isn't too bad here - I don't expect sunshine, that'd be asking too much. But I desperately need to get hubby and myself out of these four walls. Would like to take some pics as well, but think it will be too dull and maybe misty. Take care.

Sorry your weather was so lousy...likewise, it was very cold with freezing fog here until about 11am then the fog lifted, the sun came out, the clouds disappeared and we had a glorious day.  Will keep my fingers crossed for you tomorow when maybe that trip to Scone Palace might go ahead. Eve

Hi Joan,  Freezing fog is nasty so it`s a good job you didn`t venture too far afield.  We go to our local garden centre cafe regularly as they do the best coffee and lunches, like you we should buy shares in it...lol!  Isn`t Scone Palace where all the Scottish Kings where crowned? :o)

It's a shame you didn't make it to Scone Palace - sounds like an interesting place - hopefully you'll get there soon ;-)
