Back at home

In case you hadn’t guessed we had taken advantage of the good weather to go travelling.  This is a shot of HBTW and Misty taken at the southern tip of Loch Lomond.

We started off in the campervan last week in rain and drove east towards the good weather. Edinburgh was not a success, much time was spent driving round in circles trying to find the Royal Yacht Britannia and somewhere near to park. It was all roadworks, closed carparks and noisy machinery, so in the end we gave up, found a quiet spot and brewed up. That’s one of the advantages of having your travelling base with you.

A couple of days later, in brilliant April sunshine we set off south to the Borders. It’s amazing how everything looks better in good weather. I am pretty sure that many of the problems we have in Scotland are caused by incessant rain and lack of sun. Still, too much heat brings scorpions and flying things that bite and sting, and snakes, and alligators……..

But there’s nothing to beat Loch Lomond……. and coming back towards home.

    Welcome home. Sounds like a good break on the whole.

  2. Alligators in Scotland. I know Nessie lives in Loch Lomond, but alligators would freeze to death I think.
    Glad to hear you didn’t.
    Welcome back to the land of blog.

    That looks to be a lovely getaway. I’m glad you enjoyed it, and I’m glad to have you back here again. 🙂

    Hmmmm . . . when you have a camper van, even a seemingly dreary day can turn into a cozy treat, sharing a cup of tea or coffee with a favorite person, cuddled up to a pet who thinks she is a person! Hope that was they way it was for you. And the sunshine experience sounded perfect. Glad you two are up to traveling now!

    Thanks for the comments, we are already planning our next trip away!

  7. Oh beautiful. We had a wonderful visit to the Borders a couple of years ago–Montrose, Jedburgh and the other ruined abbeys there. Though I haven’t seen the really beautiful part of Scotland, which is supposed to be the Highlands, isn’t it?

    I love camper van travel. We don’t own one, but have rented one for six holidays. Hmm, could have progressed a bit towards paying down one had we bought it. One day…

    oh to be in Scotland. It’s a dream of what to do before I die. Until then, I will just remain friends with you.

    Waaaah! This is making me miss our RV! But I am so glad you got away and it looks beautiful there.
