Extended holiday

Back home after a lovely trip to Scotland.  Watching birds, visiting gardens, sitting around reading and relaxing, much sunshine.



It is good to be back at Bag End, but I really do not want to launch straight back into spending hours on the computer sorting photos (there are hundreds), writing blog posts.

The 'vacation' is going to be extended, and it might be a little while before I get round to blogging.

  1. It's good to see you back, if only briefly. I love the first photo, 'scuse my ignorance but what's the little bird? I had a lovely afternoon out with the girls last Sunday, just managed to write a blog post about it but still having pc problems so I'm a bit in limbo at the moment. Wanted to go back there today but the weather here is rather dull so I'm waiting for the sun to shine again.

    1. Thanks Eunice. As best I can tell the bird is a Rock Pipit, lovely little thing :-)

  2. It does take such a long time to sort photos and write up a post about everything you've been up to, I totally understand you extending the holiday. Have fun!

    1. Cheers Jo. I've already spent hours just looking through the multitude of pictures. Giving the blog some breathing space is definitely the right thing to do.

  8. It was good to catch up with your recent posts. I'm away at the moment ('though not on holiday as such) so not in Blogland as much as I'd like either. Your Scottis foray looks to have been good and was, I assume, up the West coast. I look forward to the pictures.

    1. Thanks Graham - "west - ish", Mull of Galloway - deserted, peaceful, quiet, very glad that most people go straight on at Gretna when I turn left!

  9. You seem to have had a good break away from the old routine. I would love to be out and about in our caravan, however the house is in such a mess at the moment. We're decorating the living room and stuff is everywhere. Hoping to get plastering and new windows done this week then we can get on with painting and wallpaper.

  12. I’ve taken that many on a single day!!!!! I’m a devil for continuous shooting especially where wildlife is concerned. It’s a shock when you come to downloading!

  18. IKWYM It takes a bit to settle back in to the homeplace after a trip. Glad you had the chance to do a little wandering around the countryside.
