Mixed Bag of Steps

We managed a few steps yesterday at various locations as we travelled down Scotland.

We went to St Andrew’s but the weather finally broke and it was raining fairly hard with a substantial wind from the North Sea. Skipped our outside lunch for fish and chips with a beer.

We then headed south inland to Stirling. The fog descended part way and was very photogenic!

We zipped on to Stirling and checked out the Castle and the Wallace Monument.

Our final stop was at my young English cousin’s place. We spent the evening catching up and discussing many subjects with her and her Scottish husband.

Hence no blog until today // doing this on the train to Edinburgh. Free wifi!!
