It has been one of those wonderful unwinding days. The sun has been shining, and for much of the day I rested and caught up with myself. But best of all, was the opportunity to sit beside the River Orchy for half an hour, watching sandmartins, pied wagtails, and smelling the strong, heady scents of the purple wild thyme and yellow broom.

I have never seen the river so low; that made it possible to walk far upstream and find a spot to sit and blend in.

The wild thyme was the most profuse ever….

And of course Misty came too.

And Him Behind the Wheel. But I won’t show you the photo where he forgot to smile!

    A day to savour and remember.
    Are you the sort of person who would consider this a day of happiness?

    Absolutely, Friko; then I almost said “I think” – because I’ve been a bit cross at myself for being so lazy! Ah well – that’s life.

    Freda, my favorite (favourite) line was “I rested and caught up with myself”. It makes me feel rested just to read it.

    find a spot to sit and blend in… – truly a lovely line and concept.

    Oh dear, I’ve been having another rest day today. Church this morning was lovely, and the chatting afterwards was interesting, but that seemed to take my store of energy for the rest of the day. How wonderful to have the gift of another sunny day to enjoy.
