I am certain there is too much certainty in this world.

Scotland was wet. At times it was merely wet. At other times it was extremely wet. The sun came out briefly in St.Andrews but after twenty minutes it retired, exhausted, behind ten layers of cloud.

Lambs everywhere. Gamboling, joyful, laughing lambs. Is it a sign of age that pleasure can be found in such simple things ? The sight of Black lamb triplets, playfully boxing like mad March hares, causes us to stop the car and stand laughing like children in the rain .

Outside a wine merchant signs of a very  good Saturday evenings business.

A young Canadian couple in the Rent a Car Terminal unpack their suitcases and don every piece of clothing they've packed . Can it be that even Scots Vancouverites find the homeland cold ? 

Everywhere we go we see Hugh Grant. Same flights, same hotels. We also see the parents of  a Duchess. Queueing something royalty doesn't do. I'll say no more. 'The font' exchanges words.

Bob and Sophie will be collected tomorrow morning at eight. 


  1. wonder it is so green. Our sheep just look at us and stamp.

    We know there are going to be some joyful gamboling PONs.

    XXXOOO Bella & Roxy

    1. Sensible Australian lambs - conserving energy and keeping cool. . There again Australian sheep don't have rain falling on them or being blown horizontally at them by gale force winds quite as much .

  2. Lovely and enjoyable photos, especially the Golden -- And you've reminded me that it's a small world, you never know who you'll run into, especially in Scotland!

  3. oh... could have looked at more and more pictures! love scotland. and if you had to run into someone over and over... well....
    so glad it was hugh grant! i've always liked him. four weddings and a funeral and love actually are especially favorites!
    can't wait to hear about the puppies' reunion with you both. xo

  4. Wrong bit of Scotland Angus! (St Andrews?) The newborn lambs round Loch Torridon were enjoying bright sunshine yesterday.
    Cheers! Gail.

  5. Ah, so happily familiar.
    And forget Hugh Grant.... parents of a Duchess?? Yowza.

  6. Oh Angus, you were playing paparazzi on your trip....what cheek.
    Hugh looks like he would have taken a hand to you in the first photo.
    Loved the lambs.

  7. Not age, M'Ongoose. It's intelligence.
