8th March - a great nephew's birth, and Drumnadrochit

And so life goes on, after a brief holiday near Drumnadrochit with eight friends and two fab dogs in  an amazing house, lots of lovely food, company, walks and talks, my great nephew was born the day after I got back. So feeling a bit bereft of lovely company and country side my spirits lift with the news of his birth, my baby brother would have a grandson.
I have to mark this occasion with a blog post!
Little Louis Mark was born on 6th March at  8.27am.




the house we were staying in near Drumnadrochit


a few years' worth of Christmas trees!


A long walk by Loch Ness



Leon had got himself covered in mud, we encouraged him to roll about in the snow, meanwhile Millie looked on not quite sure whether to join in


A walk to Divach falls


the colours were wonderful, sadly not quite coming through on this photo




A walk to Dog Falls through Glen Affric




Millie and her huge sticks, you can't see the stick but she is struggling to get it over the bridge, as each end of the stick gets stuck at every upright pole!!


 Beautiful Glen Affric

love the colours





now back to the house, a view through a gap in the dry stone wall

Superb photos - lochs, (I typed locks by mistake!!) rivers, waterfalls, all very watery theme here too! The close-ups photos, the curly wood and the gap in the dyke are so well done. And the doubtful dog! Congratulations on becoming a great aunt - he looks beautiful (of course! following in the family good looks).
