Happily Ever After
Life in The Rural Retreat with a beautiful wife, three cats, garden wildlife, a camera, a computer – and increasing amounts about running
The Mists Of Strathconon
by admin - 18:01 on 16 October 2012
Richard the Houseguest departed for Englandshire today after his stay at The Rural Retreat – a long weekend he deemed relaxing despite feline assault, too much eating and half marathon uncertainty.
Yesterday, the three of us (but no cats) put Son of Seat through his paces with a circuit of Loch Ness which featured a stop at Foyers where we saw a red squirrel, enjoyed some stupendous plum crumble at the cafe, and witnessed Highland firefighters and paramedics in action as a consequence of another walker's carelessness in straying from the path to the falls.
Today, Matchgirl stayed home while Richard, Son of Seat and I braved early mist on the way to Strathconon in search of stags. Several were seen (mostly in the distance) and the roaring of others was heard. No deer snaps were worth keeping but a couple of landscapes passed quality control, although I suspect that neither will ever trouble my printer.
A small amount of kitten-walking has taken place since The Fearless Ones' Great Adventure, but no big distances have been covered. I'm sure they'll have another chance soon. In the meantime, here's a snap of dining kittens to keep Squirrel James happy.
