It was the boss' birthday weekend, so we gallivanted up to Helensburgh, Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park in Scotland. We explored mountains and lochs and rivers and forests, and a couple of waterfalls for good measure. We did a spot of geocaching and even visited an old SAS hero too! We drove lots, walked lots, ate lots and drank lots. (That last part may have been more me than anyone else...)
It was ace. Get yourself up there for some fresh mountain air. Be careful though - you may end up quitting your day job and looking for a cabin in the woods to live in!
Here are a few snaps.
Had a wedding consultation in Halifax today, so we all piled in the car to have a quick walk round the town afterwards.
We only had a quick walk round - not very much is open on a Sunday! There are some beautiful buildings here, but rather a lot of them are looking a bit neglected. The number of boarded up places is another sign of the economic climate, and makes the town feel a little forgotten. Still, as I said - some of the buildings are lovely.
We spent a lot of time down near the war memorial at the Minster. My 10 year old has recently joined the Sea Cadets and was pretty taken by it all.
After a quick walk up to Wetherspoons, it was time for a quick dinner and a pint before heading home.
Here's a few snaps.
Thought I'd start this little blog to let people know what we get up to. Some personal stuff thrown in the mix too.
