Saturday 9 April 2011: A new view
1. Today was a brilliant day. I woke really early with no headache for the first time in a day or two and headed out. A walk round the park in the morning sunshine, the sun warm and the sky cloud free. A quick shop to pick up some supplies, then in to see Douglas, Caroline and Ellis. It's nice to peek in at someone elses Saturday morning. We have a blether and I head off in their car to start the day.
2. We start the journey that we both hope we might be making a lot more frequently as time goes on. We are heading through the Galloway forrest park which is one of the most beautiful parts of the country, we think. It's so, so quiet. So quiet that we think we might be the only two people who know how amazing it is to turn left there and drive for an hour or so.
3. This is what we are here to see. We meet the owner who is sitting in the sunshine and she shows us round. My blip photo today is the view from the front. Panning round to the right you would see Dundrennan Abbey and a little further you would see the sea. The road from here to the next town is one of the finest views I have seen. These are views that I would like our eyes to see everyday.
4. After time spent in the Crown and Anchor we go to Kirkcudbright for a sunny walk and some lunch. It's an Artists Town and it feels it. We then go to our favourite shop in Castle Douglas - a food town - and wander happily.
5. Back in the city we head to the Waverly Tearooms for a pint or two and talk about what we might do. Exactly what will happen, we don't know. What we are sure of is that something will change. Today was a day that will change things.
