End of the Summer is beckoning but life is still gooooood

Well...autumn is approaching in Argyll but it is nonetheless still beautiful with the leaves starting to change and the air a little cooler. The garden produce is coming to an end and I am frantically searching for every beetroot recipe every invented. This also involves disguising the fact that there is actually beetroot in said food as 3/5th of the Corner incumbents are not took keen on the red rooted vegetable.

Below are last nights guests just leaving...they came in some style all the way from Yorkshire. We had to confine the dogs to quarters as they left being unsure about the wisdom of motor bike herding.

The training is still on go-ahead mode with a rash attempt being made to combine sprint triathlon training (September 29th) with 1/2 marathon training (6th October) which meant a lot of hard work with pretty coloured pens a couple of months ago and some not inconsiderable combining of Brick sessions ( Bike-Run (Triathlon)) with Interval sessions (fast/ recovery running (1/2)). I could get very confused if I wanted to! Luckily jogscotland are very accommodating at going along with my crazy schemes for out and about training...I was so excited to find these steps hidden away.

Happy guests... Happy dogs

An Italian family this weekend kept the dogs fully exercised and entertained. Nancy was a little shy at first but was soon bribed with a small squeaky plastic beef burger into joining in the never ending game of fetch. This was a really delightful family and should anyone encounter them on their long trip round Scotland give them a wave and a " chow" from me

Pietro Argyll and Arianna Skye Roche

The joys of B and B can come in unexpected ways and these two young guests were certainly a delight. The wonderfully named Pietro Argyll Roche and his sister Arianna Skye Roche were visiting last night from Milan. Their great grandfather was a blacksmith who shoed horses for the Duke and their Granny Ann has told them all about playing in the gardens of the " Argyll Castle". They were travelling with their Italian Grandparents and mother and British father as a 80th birthday grift to their grandfather. I hope they all have a wonderful holiday and how fantastic to have brushed lives with them all.
