Moody Monday…… but who cares

Moody Ledaig

It might have been a moody day at Ledaig. But with views over the sound of Mull whilst pottering along the tideline of the Scottish beach, it can be just perfect… and the perfect cure for a Moody Monday.

Where ever you are today and whatever you  doing…

Thoughtful Thursday……

Tranquility

Tranquillity 

Loch Garten in the Abernethy Forest lies within the Cairngorm National Park, Scotland.  All is calm, the still waters and low light create, at the end of the day, the perfect place to pause and reflect….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other

CARRON TORRIDON

Not Forgotten….

SCOTLAND

Brora Beach, North East Coast of Scotland

It is 4 years ago today that we said goodbye to our Black Labrador Carla.   For over 15 years Carla had been our Director of Greetings and of course a very faithful friend.

The above picture was taken on Brora Beach when Carla was in her prime.  

Gone…but not forgotten

It is today an empty shell, but its rich Red Sandstone is still as dramatically dominant as it was in 1250ad, the date it was suggested it opened.
