This is our last day, why is it you suddenly find somewhere to visit on your last day, found a leaflet for a red kite feeding station above Inverness but we will leave this till next year. Went to the RSPB reserve again to see the Osprays again saw a red squriel,
After lunch went to the Potting Shed for coffee and cake they have a room overlooking bird feeders saw another 2 red squriels here.
Today is overcast, so we have gone fishing, hubby fishing I am sat in the car stitching.
Yesterday I took some photo from the car of the Caringorms as you can still see snow, hubby was horrified as I did this with my iPad he is a Cannon man who has many lens for every job, a couple of years ago on the longest day we where up the Caringorms and they where skiing.
Coffee time again! No cake this time, having a relaxing day, weather mixed. Been for a drive around the Aveimore area been to another Osprays nest we know about stopped off at a nursery which has a lovely coffee shop and home made cake but unfortunately it was closed will go back another day. Managed to get some stitching in.
We went up to Inverness to do some shopping then decided to go out for a meal, we have been to the Snow Goose quite a few times not sure if they have changed chain but the menu had changed, I had the Sunday roast which was fine, hubby had hunters chicken but they had sprinkled cheese on his chips so he was some what put out, I informed him that a lot of people eat their chips this way unfortunately we will not now be going back.
We arrived safe and sound to be greeted by the ducks we always bring them some food.
This morning the weather is dull and rain is forecast we have deceived to go to Boat of Garten and see the Osprays at the RPB reserve and have lunch at the loch side.
I tried to capture the chicks from the screen to show you all, there is 3 chicks this year, there is also bird feeders so you can see loads of LBJ's still not seen a crested tit yet, there was a great spotted woodpecker and it's young. No red squriel yet so far.
Unfortunately while knitting my cow yesterday the instructions where wrong so she had to be put away I now have some new instructions which the designer has e-mailed me, but no printer so my hubby has copied the part I need to notes so I can carry on knitting, this is what I ended up stitching it is a scissor fob of Sue Hawkins I love her stuff.
Tomorrow we are off on holiday, we are off to Carrbridge just outside Aviemore so lets hope the weather stays nice all packed will be setting off early as it will take about 10 hours to drive there with a few stops.
Not got much to show did a workshop with Jayne Greenoff last weekend while she was at the Leeds Hilton for the weekend managed to finish the scissor keep, not taken a picture yet.
