Well it doesn’t look like that today! Call us fairweather tourists but today we didn’t feel like experiencing a second shower. So having looked at the forecast we made the executive decision to catch the first boat back to the mainland and head south in search of sun. Sunday breakfast on a ferry is good fun! I hope it won’t be the last time we visit Arran. I have utterly fallen in love with it, even in the rain ⛰☔️⛴

After arriving on Arran early this afternoon by ferry we checked out Brodick (which was achieved very quickly). Then decided the best way to get a feel for the island was to catch a bus which would take us around the perimeter (you have to change bus halfway around as one bus does the north half and another the south). It was glorious to see the island and it’s surrounds in the sunshine. Knowing that the forecast for tomorrow is a bit bleak we headed for a walk this evening out along the boards leading to Fisherman’s Walk and Brodick Castle. Beautiful. Even as the dark clouds blew in. Now for a night cap and to bed down in the wee bunkhouse ⛰🗺🚌

Yesterday was a mini adventure. We started off in the Lakes, but having looked at the weather didn’t fancy getting rained on all day so headed north. Rather than drive straight to Glasgow we crossed the border and hung a left out to Stranraer, then up the coast to Culzean Castle. The Castle was stunning in the sunshine, sat on top of cliffs looking out towards the Isle of Arran. After a few hours exploring we jumped back in the car and motored up to Glasgow to catch up with the delightful @sarahlesliekidd, @kidd_graeme and Callie! Thank you for a lovely evening! Now on to our next mini adventure! 🙌🏻☀️🗺🥂🐾

Today was a good day. Glorious sunshine, hotter than promised and so clear we could see the tops of all the hills! Drove down to Grasmere to share the beauty of such a wonderful little honey pot with family. Wandered around the shops and cafes, played on the grass in green spaces and had tea on the lawns at Allan Bank with the tiny girl. Wonderful views and memories made in the hot afternoon sun ☀️☕️⛰

Another fun packed day of adventure with the tiny girl! This morning up to @lakes_wildlife to explore and watch the animals - the visit was completed with a book about unicorns. It was then nap time and some of the ‘grown ups’ had a wander around Keswick with a cup of tea. Plus discovered the fun passport that goes with the @lakedistrictpound! Finally ‘home’ via the stunning Castlerigg Stone Circle 🦄☕️☀️

Dark clouds and dark waters. Brilliant day out on the ‘steamers’ @ullswatersteam up and down Ullswater with grown ups and tiny girl. Stopping at Glenridding for lunch on the lake side plus very excitingly a badge from @catstycam_glenridding of Helvellyn (earned about 14yrs ago) @conquerlakedistrict. It was looking very ominous towards the southern end of the lake this evening 📷⛴🗺

Enjoying the few little solar bulbs adorning the catio roof. Yes. You read that correctly. Another step towards crazy cat lady status is secured. They love it and we can open windows, it’s a win-win. Plus it looks pretty and I can grow things up the side! 💡
