Chamfron Bellini - Photoshoot

Natalie had booked a photo shoot with Mandy Meadows, who has kindly allowed me to use these fabulous photos of Bellini on the blog.  Bellini sadly returned from her loan home injured and lame and is just coming back into work very slowly now.  

Lockdown walks

East Lothian this weekend, walking along the John Muir costal path past the murals and many more painted stones (2020 will be the year people got passionate about painting stones!)  Then another trip to see Dunbear, I'd hoped to see it lit up but although I've seen the odd illuminated bear photo it wasn't last night and it has an unfinished "meh" feel about it.  The Essex based company that installed the solar lighting struggles with the concept of photo copyright as one of my previous blog photos (and one of Craig's) feature proudly on their website...  Today we dodged the showers and headed to Binning Wood.  Lockdown restrictions are lifting in Scotland, no travel restrictions (other than in certain postcodes in Dumfries where there is a cluster of cases) visits to care homes allowed, no social distancing for children, the only new ruling is that face coverings will be mandatory in shops from the 10th of July.  Pubs reopened in England last night, drunk people do not appear to be capable of socially distancing.

Otterly Amazing

Wildlife camera footage of an albino otter having an all you can eat sushi experience as it decimated over thirty Koi Carp in eighteen minutes.

Bowhill Estate

Another day, another walk.  I've totally lost track of what is happening in the current Coronavirus / lockdown situation but non essential shops can open tomorrow and I have got a hair appointment booked for late next month (woohoo!)

"Good to do"!!

Waterloo Monument

Waterloo Monument from Harestanes today, arrived in the torrential rain and left in the torrential rain but got to see the views in the sun.  By the time lockdown is over we will have seen the Eildons from every angle and we may come back with the keys for the tower which you can pick up from the Estate office in Bonjedward.

Hottest day of the year

The Tweed, Torwoodlee, trainspotting, snacking the pony and cocktails in the sunshine.
