Up the road

doune castle


I have prepared; washing, ironing, cleaning, sorting and now today I will be packing.

Tomorrow we will travel ‘up the road’ to Scotland, we three, for a week of beautiful views, good food, castles, walks in the wilds and paddling in Lochs; we may even squeeze in a visit to the coast. Seven days where nothing else matters other than spending time together (mostly gadget free).

We have many wonderful memories of Scotland already, a place we love dearly, with more to be made in the coming week.

There may not be much, if any, contact with the online world, although I will try to fit in some writing with good old pen and paper.


We’ll take a trip in evening light

to a place we know and love.

We’ll take off our shoes to paddle bare feet

then o’er the water of Bonnie Loch Earn

we’ll watch the sun retreat.



Two subjects I love to write about are memories and nature…they really inspire me, so every Friday I will post either a poem, prose, story or a photograph with perhaps a few words based on one of these two subjects.

If you wish to join in, then please leave a link in comments or use the hashtag #MemoriesNature on Twitter or alternatively leave a comment on my Facebook page, whichever suits you best.

Writing memories and nature every Friday…the kettle is on.
