Last w'end I was on 4wheels for a wee hol down Dumfries Galloway area.

It became a wild life safari -----


A Common Blue --- apparently they are particularly common in the SW in July. Snapped this one down at Sandgreen.



The art lovers amongst you will know all about the late A.E. Hornell. Snapped the local pest controller in the garden of the house where he used to live.


These cattle were enjoying a cooling "paddle". Snapped on the estuary in Kikcudbright opposite the harbour.




At first I thought this was a heron but no --its an Egret. Snapped on the estuary just up from the harbour.



Swallows pick daft places to nest. This one had set up home in a smart garden shelter in Logan Botanical garden and wasn't happy we had sat down whilst it had been out.

Nice pictures Ian

I will be going to the Blast from the Past event tomorrow (in the car) so hopefully I will get some pictures also .

Doing a little better this week , able to drive car and walk but still at about 60% myself , mostly off the pain meds


Cheers Craig

So the road to recovery is very slow , 8 weeks now since operation .

Feeling good enough to go for a short  ride on Sunday , 50 miles round trip with coffee stop in middle and back home safe before rain came.

What a feeling being out on the bike again

But still a bit to go to strengthen my abdomen muscles .
