Sunny Saturday – 25 April 2015

So today I started out trialling Blogo. I finally found a trial copy which lasts for 21 days and thought that would be as much as I’d need to evaluate it. It only took about 15 minutes to decide it needed a bit more practise, so it’s back to Mars Edit for the next few days:

The day started well, with blue skies when we had been expecting rain. Scamp was still feeling a bit under the weather, so we decided not to go too far. Finally made the decision to go to Stirling for a curry.

Oh no! They’d changed the menu and both our favourites were no longer there. This was after about 10 or 15 years of knowing exactly what we were having before we got the menus. Oh well, everything changes or so they say. After lunch we wandered around Stirling. S went to clothes shops, I went to the book shop. Dropped in at Dobbies on the way home to get a hose (at last). Hopefully no more lugging watering cans around!!

Managed a walk over to St Mo’s in the late afternoon. Although it was sunny, there was still a cold breeze. Managed a few shots of Mr Grey, the heron. Disturbed the deer as usual and as usual they got away from me. It’s really remarkable the speed with which the trees are putting on their greenery. There’s just that sheen of green over everything now and little sprouting green shoots on the forest floor. It’s amazing how much more you see when you visit an area each day rain or shine.

I spotted Mr Grey out fishing today.  He didn't see me and I managed to get a few shots, this is probably the best.  I liked the intensity of his focus on his prey.  Never saw him catch anything, but that's sometimes the way.
