When I got home from work the girls were enjoying a dust bath in the garden
This is still twin watching night, so I wandered up to my house with them. Minky decided he would follow granddad up the stairs, I went up a few steps behind him and he went for a nosey round the rooms, he came back down holding Granddads hand.
Went for a walk and came across a random flower.
We decided to take our time coming up and stopped off wherever took our fancy on the way up. We spotted these at the Duck Bay Marina at Balloch and I just had to photograph them. I added the line and the alien myself , just cos I could.
Today was about helping my daughter with what ever little bits and pieces she required help with. So it involved tablet making, making up favour boxes and wrapping presents for the bridesmaids and ushers. Later in the afternoon we went down to the wedding venue and had a run through for the big day.
Daughter went to get her nails painted, went for lunch with some of her friends that had come up for the wedding and then in the evening after the whole wedding party on my daughter's side had been for a meal together we came up the road and made up the place names ready to go on the table for the big day.
Well the big day dawned dry but a bit overcast. The bridesmaids arrived and we all went down to the hairdressers to get our hair and make up done. Back up the road for just after twelve, a quick snack of tuna pasta, and into their dresses. Once we were all ready Louise made her big entrance down the stairs. Oh boy she looked beautiful beyond belief. We all had a wee tear at this point.
Well that is it, it is all over, and what an amazing day it was, from start to finish. Son in Laws dad has been quite ill but he managed the actual wedding, some photographs in the hotel, and then attended the evening reception for the first dance. Was lovely that he could make it as it was touch and go.
A group of our family met up for a lunch before they all went back home. Daughter and Son in Law went off on honeymoon and I got chance to collapse in a heap, it had been a tiring few days. Daughter No1 had been staying over night in Louise's house so we went back round to see if we could help out with anything. I took the gruesome twosome for a walk while they loaded the car. Minky was playing with a shoe box, Dinky was running around with her huge big smile, and Bob was playing with his car he had been bought for being an usher at the wedding.
The first day of our holiday, and so we decided to make the most of the dry weather and go for a Three Isle Cruise. This would take us across to Mull, onto Staffa, then to Iona and then back through Mull to Oban again. Was a ten hour cruise with lots and lots of photographs taken so difficult to pick just one, but others will be shared on a blog post at some point.
I like this one as I think the puffins are just so ungainly in flight.
A turn in the weather today, but we did get out for a while Picked up a few geocaches. The scenery was not worth photographing as the sea and sky was just a mass of grey with no clear lines.
Went for a walk, weather still not brilliant but these brightened my day, apparently they are part of a community project to raise money for a hall.A lot of the lamp posts have them on. They are hand knitted jumpers for want of a better expression.
Another dull day. Went along to Ganavan to pick up a cache. Took a walk along the cycle path and spotted this explanation sign post on the back road.
Well holiday is over, and we cached our way home as we had cached our way up. Stopped off at some lovely places. This being one of them. The Butter Falls at Glen Kinglass.
Cases are unpacked, washing is out, back to normal then. During my holiday I had to call on my lovely friend Sam to help out with an issue back home. So when we got back today the chickens had left her a message on their eggs, and I added a bunch of flowers and a few bits from the wedding for her by way of a thank you.
Looking forward to catching up with the other 365's this week.
