We headed to Oban for a week to spend time with DD2, SIL2 and Ziggy. Sadly, by my standards, it was far to warm most of the week to be out and about and if we left the walks till the evening then the midges were out in force and you could play dot to dot on me with the amount of bites I had. So we tried to stick to shaded walks during the day'
So in no particular order here was some of our fun.
We went to Ganavan beach, Jack ( the golden lab) decided in the water was the best place for him.

Then we had a picnic before heading back.

After Ziggy's nap she went put on the patio to play.
|on her rocking horse.|
|had to laugh...she now comes towards the camera just like her older cousins.|
|playing with the water table.|
After tea we went up to the top garden area with the bubble machine and the dogs.

|up to cut the grass with it|
|in the shade of the rhubarb leaves....a few people warned us of the dangers of these leaves when I shared this on Faceboog.|

|pegs are a lot of fun|
|playing with Dixie dog and Dixies toy|
|on her slide on the deck.|
|planting the seeds, well playing with the compost anyway.|
|and watering the seed, this made for mud fun|
On Monday morning DD2 had an appointment and so Ziggy and I went to the park.
|ooppps the hat blew off|
|on the slide, I am not so keen on this piece of equipment as a few gaps up the top she could fall from.|
|on the submarine|
|standing on the roundabout, designed to take a wheel chair|
|sitting on the rocks|
|pushing the roundabout|
Another day we went back down the park with my daughter.
|she can work these herself|
|up the steps to the slide|
|peeking through the submarine window|
|on the double swing with her mum|
When her dad got home on evening he got out some uncooked spaghetti and marshmallows and did some model making with Ziggy.
|these two really took a shine to each other|
On Sunday we all went out together to Appin to see Castle Stalker and take a walk.
