Fresh air, flat space
Harlaw, in the Pentland Hills
I've finally transferred my recent pics onto the computer so will show more through the week. Lots of nature. On Sunday we had a trip in the car to nearby Malleny Garden which I always enjoyed as a peaceful place with usually very few people around and lots of places to sit. Last year, whenever Mr P was free for a trip in the car, it was either raining (June to September) or I just wasn't able to manage it physically.
On Sunday we both needed it, the weather was right and I was feeling tired but keen so off we went. We were only out for an hour in the garden but it was really nice. Then before heading home we drove up a road we'd never noticed be fore (I am all about spontaneous navigation) and found ourselves on a bit of the Pentlands I never knew existed. A really high up flat area (pictured) with more peaks in the distance. I was too tired to actually walk it but nipped out of the car for a few pictures. Andy suggested we could put my, as yet unused, folding bike in the car so I could cycle the flat bit one day. I'm very keen.
