We’ve spent the weekend in the Highlands, where Tom has been running a race – the Stuc a’Chroin 5000
While he was away up the hill, Bruce and I went for a walk. . .
We were lucky with the weather (later we saw hail and snow!)
Bruce was very suspicious of this wee suspension bridge and teetered over, bandy-legged.
After 13.5 miles, 5000 feet of ascent, 2 hours and 51 minutes, the wanderer returned . . .
The running vest I knitted him 5 years ago (sheesh!) is still holding up to its job remarkably well.
It is a good, warm vest for a chilly mountain top. The yarn I used was Rowan “Calmer”, for those who like to know these things.
We went out for a nice meal to celebrate . . .
. . . and camped in one of our favourite spots.
Tom’s next race is on Jura – in just a few weeks time, we’ll be off to the islands . . .
Hope you’ve enjoyed your weekend too!
