Rain and more rain...
Indeed the comparisons between now and 1992 are striking, it is a wee bit rainy at present! After doing the rooms (lovely guests as per usual...old friends and maybe some new ones) Garret and I dashed off to Loch Glashan which has a convenient 10 mile track around it. The plan was to help pal Naomi who is in the final throes of marathon training and had a whopping 20 miles to do today. Liz and another friend Stella accompanied her round the first lap and then we arrived as she was scooping up energy gel stuff and whisked off for the second lap. The only hitch was the ever present rain that has cause the Loch to fill up and so an overflow channel was released big time over the path...we had to remove trainers and wade holding hands whilst Garret carried the dogs over!! He did offer to piggy back but hey...dignity!!! The rest of the ten miles passed in a blur of gossip and catching up...well, almost.......

Sunday 6th August (Garret)
To say it rained last night is to say the universe is large! I actually felt sorry for any midge that was around.
Filmed the river in full GUSTO! Chopped a lot of firewood. Made door casing for in lounge and lounge door etc. Stripped lathe and plaster and ceiling from around the library window. Lintel ready to replace them.
