Rest and be Thankful

A quick post, I've been trying to go to bed for 5hrs, and now it's full daylight outside!

Scotland is such a green country, I'm am particularly appreciating this after seeing urban areas going brown after our recent hot weather and lack of rain. I'm a gardener, I like a bit of rain each week.





The Rest and be Thankful is on the way to my Gran's house in Argyll, in the West Coast of Scotland. It came as a welcome resting place to folks in the past who used to walk their sheep (i think sheep, or cattle?) all the way up the steep slopes. When you got here, from either side, you had a good rest and were thankful knowing it was all downhill from then on.

Often it's clothed in mist but when we took a trip to my Gran's last month for her birthday it was really hot and sunny, and the clouds sent shadows dancing over the mountains.
