Good Afternoon, What a lovely day we have had here today a cloudless blue sky I Stuart had an early appointment at the doctors and I had a dentist appointment straight after. When I was finished I asked if we could go to the park by the loch so I could take some photos. As we walked around we decided to have a walk along part of the new footpath I mention this to you before, they are laying a footpath all the way around the Loch its not quite finished yet it will take about another year to complete. Previous to the laying of the path it was impossible to walk along the loch side during the winter due to flooding but the new path has nice dry chips so it makes the walk a lot easier and you still have dry feet. You will a picture with green netting a lot of money has been spent of late on the park they council have built a new play park and planted many new trees. The netting is where people can take their dog to exercise them so not to foul the ground and I must admit it seems to be working as I never saw one mess on the grass which before now would not have been possible.

We really enjoyed our walk most likely because it was unplanned it was such a beautiful morning and there was no wind at all usually you get blown off your feet at this time of year. They have restored the fishing lodge and turned it into a Bistro which unfortunately is closed at the moment but I have been promised a coffee down there later when it opens up again.

Yesterday we in St Andrews in thick fog and it was freezing but I did see clumps of daffodils in the car park so spring is coming even up here in the frozen north as I call it. Till next time.

Love,

I love your photos. The Loch looks beautiful.  I bet it will be a beautiful walk in the summer.
I hope everything went well at the doctors and the dentist.
We too have had thick fog and ice this morning.
We saw daffodils in full bloom on Saturday.!!!

It's been nice down here too today, very sunny and quite warm, I must remeber to take my camera on my walks, your photos are really good, the on across the Loch especially, nice to have an area for the dogs to have a run.
I've just started on the new James Patterson 6th Target, (womens murder club) that should keep me occupied for a day or two..lol.
Take care
