Just back from our adventures up and down the country.
It was fun with David.
We had a good laugh and hopefully those attending did as well?
Many thanks to all those that came along to the day in Airdrie.

We had a lovely couple of hours here and thought this was the waterfall,
only to be told the three main ones are a 30 minute walk up river ..oops
We did not have time to explore but maybe would come back another time.

The bat picture is the reason I went back to visit my bat Tutorial that
I only posted the other week to make his ears so much bigger.

The Bat instructions are here if you'd like to take a look,

David making a mobile call in the phone box,
it made us both smile but then we are both easily pleased.
