An exciting day.


A flock of cross bills seen by the Dawn Patroller up the lane.  All the text books state not in this area of Scotland.  So a first for us.



The wind came back, but in the proper direction (so it was not wetting all the wood stacked up in the newly erected wood shed).

The wreck at Cairnbulg, which remains, no matter what wind direction there is, shows the stormy seas.




The view from Cairnbulg across the sea to Kinnaird Head Lighthouse where the Lighthouse Museum is.  More stormy seas.




Wowee.


Lobster pots with their floats, you throw the lobster pots in, the orange ball floats so you can see where to gather it in.  But today they are not going out, too rough.


This weekend was the New Pitsligo Visual Arts Exhibition.

There were 216 paintings entered.

And one of mine got a HIGHLY COMMENDED.



After running round the exhibition and shouting "Yes, yes, yes."  I didnt actually do that, but wanted to -

-We went to the Last Bus Cafe and the DP had a banana muffin, we both had a cappuccino.


And he took this awful picture of me.

An exciting day.

And yes, a nice Merlot to celebrate an exciting day.

Congratulations on the Highly Commended. I bet you had a big smile on your face. Fantastic pictures of the angry sea. I think you ate the muffin, didn't you - such a guilty look!
Love from Mum
