A gap in the clouds

We’ve been lucky to escape the worst of the winter storms so far but Gertrude and Henry gave us a bit of a buffeting. So it was lovely when the sun peeked out yesterday afternoon and we were able to enjoy a walk more or less upright and without one layer of waterproofs.

oops! need to clean the windows 

 

We climbed up the hill behind the house looked down on the Sound bathed in sunshine.

Although on our return we crunched through this…

Today dawned brightly and as we needed to make a trip into the town we took Bramble to her favourite beach for a run and then walked over the hill (following the cycle path ) to Dunstaffnage Castle.

I spotted some signs of Spring in the ditches,

but Winter will be with us a while yet, there was sleet after lunch. Still it’s beautiful here , whatever the weather.
