Out of touch and out of time

We have been way for three nights and off-grid in the Galloway Forest Park, wilding. No phones, no Internet. We had a marvellous time, even though the weather might have been kinder.

There was much peace and quiet and there were Red Deer (pictured) and Roe Deer (not pictured),

Arran at the Red Deer Range

and goats,

and many Red Kite, and dark, dark skies… lit by Merry Dancers and there were long walks punctuated by much rain.There was also an extremely long detour and some highly “interesting” roads.

There would have been far more photographs, had it not been for the rain.

We stopped overnight: at the Deer Range; in Glentrool by the side of the Cree; and at the side of the Raiders Road –  each night having our chosen spot to ourselves.

Today we came home via Dumfries, intending to spend some of the Retirement Vouchers in WH Smith’s. We were after the new Elbow album and the Stone’s latest. Smith’s had neither. In fact they seem hardly to stock music, having just a few “Top Sellers” – none of which we would wish to have thrown at us. Is that how it is these days – do high street stores no longer sell music?

The vouchers were burning a hole in Mr L’s pocket so we came away with a French Road Atlas and a French/English Dictionary plus a DVD to watch sometime when we have nothing else to amuse us.

Came home to this week’s Gousto Box so looking forward to some fun cooking in the coming days.

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost

Oh, deer

Nell and I had a lovely walk this morning. The weather has cooled considerably and there was a very pleasant breeze. We both made better time than of late. … Continue readingOh, deer
