After a few days of grey, mizzly weather the sun finally decided to make an appearance yesterday.
I was quite relieved as I had offered to lead a walk for the girls and they were travelling all the way up here for the occasion.
We did the same walk that P and I had tried out last week. A 4 mile loop starting on the beach then climbing up through Lhergy Frissel then the Claughbane meadow and back along the old railway line. I took lots of photos last time so didn't bother yesterday, although we did have a team photo at the end.
At the end of our walk we were lucky to find a table at Conrod's Coffee Shop (owned by our local TT race legend Connor Cummins) and enjoyed more chat over coffee and a shared chocolate brownie.
After a shower then lunch I sat out in the garden for a while to enjoy the welcome sunshine.
P had been shopping and bagged a bargain for supper from the yellow sticker shelf. Two plump duck breasts at half price. They were very good, especially with a glass of prosecco.
Our forecast looks good for most of this week so more walks are likely before the rain returns.
I need to work off some excess weight!
I bet it made a lovely change for the other ladies. When walking, it's stimulating to be somewhere new.ReplyDelete
It certainly helps, especially when there is blue sky and sunshine too.Delete
I used to love that yellow sticker shelf.... Judging by the attire in the photo you are experiencing pleasantly warm weather. What we wouldn't give for some of that right now.... some Goldilocks weather.ReplyDelete
It was just right...not too hot, not too cold...Delete
We went on two walks over the weekend. A very pleasurable pursuit especially on flattish terrain. Supposed to be lovely weather here until Friday. Nice group picture JayCee.ReplyDelete
Our weather is supposed to be find for most of the week too. Hope so!Delete
The formidable four. I would stand aside immediately to let you pass.ReplyDelete
Even worse when the missing two others join us. The Scary Six!Delete
As to your last sentence my reply would be 'don't we all!'ReplyDelete
Too many Hobnobs are my downfall.Delete
It is so nice to have walking buddies. I always walk a bit farther without noticing when I am walking (and talking) with friends! Glad you had a perfect day for it!ReplyDelete
It was indeed perfect Ellen.Delete
No walking here. Feels like 36c at 11 am. Glad you and your friends were able to get in a lovely walk and a talk or two(or ten).ReplyDelete
36C Ouch! Barely 18C here but just right for me.Delete
Look at that beautiful blue sky ….. it’s grey and rainy here !!!!! XXXXReplyDelete
Oh no! It makes a change for us to have the better weather over here. It is usually the other way round! xxxDelete
It looks lovely where you are. It's very warm here in Scotland but quite cloudy so it feels a bit muggy. It's nice to be out and about with friends again isn't it. xReplyDelete
Hope the good weather lasts, for both of us!Delete
Rain again here last night, the second half of June has been a nightmare. You have prompted me to buy a Duck breast for tonight,ReplyDelete
I love duck. It is an occasional treat for us.Delete
