Scotland this Summer
Just dropping in to water the garden and do some washing on our way back from Scotland and on to the Dordogne. The highlights of the holiday so far:
Best Gardens: Threave near Castle Douglas.
Best Building: Scottish Parliament Building in Edinburgh.
Best Exhibition: "Consider the Lilies" in Kirkcudbright. (We didn't make it to the Picasso or Andy Warhol in Edinburgh.)
Best find: Kilos and kilos of chanterelle mushrooms.
Best Walk: Rockcliffe to Kippford.http://www.blogger.com/img/gl.link.gif
Best Book: Kate Atkinson's One Good Turn
Best sporting event: Putting on the green in Moffat
Most unusual architecture: Samyi Ling Buddhist Temple at Eskdalemuir
Most misleading sign: "Families Welcome" outside a pub. This actually meant that the seedy bar was full of teenage mothers surrounded pushchairs.
Worst meal: Maxie's Bistro in Edinburgh. Dire.
Worst experience on coming home: having lost the ticket for the car park, closely followed by "popping" on the scales.
Best thing in the pile of post: My mini moo stickers. What should I do with them?
