We are just back from four weeks in Scotland, taking in friends and family, a last trip on the canal boat, the Commonwealth Games Flotilla, the Kelpies, a return to Sunnyside, the Edinburgh Festival fringe and so much more.
Scotland was looking at its best. The weather was generally very good – Glasgow was even as hot as Crete one day when we were there!
After a long gap, just wanted to let you know that all is well with us and that we had a great holiday. Many thanks to everyone for their hospitality and good company – too many kindnesses to mention everyone by name! I’ll just let the photos do the talking. Hope we see you all out here soon.
We actually arrived back in Crete ten days ago but spent some time in Heraklion ‘doing’ the musems. Then we rented a small house for a few days in Pachia Ammos near Kavousi because James and Claire and her two girls were staying in our house. It was arrangement which worked well because we spent time with them at the beach and in the evenings at local tavernas so we had lots of time together but they had space to enjoy their holiday.
Now we are back in our house and it is very strange being here without Bonnie. New routines have to be developed and there is a certain re-arrangement of the furniture and of course there is no wet friendly nose arriving by my side when I sit down in the evenings! We saw H2 on Sunday and visited Bonnie’s grave and when the weather cools we will plant a ‘Bonnie’ tree at the spot. What a great view she has!
