Here birdie birdie birdie!
A quail that hung around for crumbs outside the kitchen window.
The lamb with mummy-ewe, who's giving me a rather baleful, cold-eyed stare. Hey, I only wanted a photo!
Lamb (alive and without the mint sauce)
The little lamb that was in a field outside our cottage - a rather weak little thing.
Rocks and roots
Close-up... the stones among the roots are really quite big rocks.
Uprooted whole during a winter storm (I presume) - roots, stones and all!
Tree across the track
Tree down! Totally blocking the forest track that leads to Truim Woods viewpoint. This is where we were forced to turn back.
Tree and drystone wall
A bare tree (only now beginning to show new growth) and a stone wall - I liked both.
A nice fuzzy view of the valley from the memorial area.
Memorial for some reason
A memorial to some Scots who died in South Africa (doesnt say why, how or when) - but it's got a great view of the plains below.
Ready to ride the ruts
The man and the machine - just after entering the woodland path leading to Truim Woods.
Me on a bench overlooking Truim Falls - it's a viewpoint during the circular walk.
Baby pine cone
Close-up of a baby pine cone and bright green baby pine needles. The needles are wonderfully soft and cool when they're this young... the adult needles irritate and prickle my skin and make it itch.
Truim Falls from up high
View of Truim Falls from high above
Rushing gushing stream
Another view of Trium Falls
The rushing waters of Trium Falls
Bridge over the falls
The bridge again, a closer shot taken from the rocks
Pete down by the stream
Pete the intrepid rock-climber. I'm sh*t scared of heights (and depths).
Bridge over untroubled waters
The bridge again, but more of it this time
Water under the bridge
The small stream that becomes the little but rushing Truim Falls
A little rock-pool with rainwater collected in it
Pete down among the rocks by Truim Falls
Misty late-evening view
The view from the front of Crubenbeg Holiday Cottages (and from our front door, I might add)
Looking through the curtains
View of the lawn and children's play area from our living room window.
