Good Afternoon, You may be wondering why I am taking you on a tour in the car on Saturday when we went on Thursday . I have been reading about everybody’s trials and tribulations about putting in photos to our journals so I thought I would wait till it was fixed before I attempted to put mine in so here’s hoping all is well.
We have not been touring about very much of late with the weather being so nasty and the price of fuel these days but on Thursday morning when got up the sun was shining and it was a beautiful morning so we thought we would have a run in the car. We headed up to Perth then to Glendoick garden centre for a coffee and a home made scone lovely. From there we headed to an old haunt of ours The Knapp it is a narrow road that runs across the hills to Couper Angus. We were very lucky as we turned off the main road we saw a small flock of about 10 lovely Waxwings what better on a winters day. It was a favourite of ours when we lived in Dundee and Stuart has many happy memories of climbing up this road on his bike when he was training for races. We were so happy on Thursday as believe it or not nothing has changed there is no new house or roads been build it was as it was when we left Dundee thirty five years ago. Stuart took some of the photographs hoping to use them for his art work he is always looking for something to paint an often uses photographs as it is far too cold for him now outside how times change from the guy that rode his bike in all weathers.
We had a great day and the rain stayed away till we were just about home so all in all ‘ A Grand Day Out’
Just a point that may interest you.
Quote from Macbeth by William Shakespear.
Macbeth shall never vanquished be,
Until Great Birnam Wood to High Dunsinane Hill.
Shall come against him.
The above picture is of Dunsinane Hill.
Till Next time Love,
