This weekend was the first time this year we’ve had the chance to really get outside — by which I mean, not just go for a walk, but get in the tent. I can’t tell you how happy this makes me. We’ve had such a nice couple of days. There were ruins to explore . . .
. . . there were textiles in the Dumfries Museum for me (I like local museums and this is a very good one.)
. . . there was a hill race for Tom. . .
(Warming up for Criffel Hill Race. . . )
And best of all, we found a well-placed pitch, complete with red squirrels scampering in the trees above. Watching squirrels from my tent with a giant cup of tea! What could be better?
