Taking the lead

 Another week in "lockdown" weather hasn't been too bad, sometimes even rising to 10 degrees C. So taking the lead from the recent football fans debacle (Hundreds of local fans two weeks ago and thousands of Rangers fans last week gathering, drinking, most with no masks) and the fact that I am confused on the exact rules and of course I could take the defence the First Minister has taken in her recent debacle (one of many debacles) if I am stopped I assume its ok to use the "I don't remember" defence?

Anyway Saturday was braw, cool and some more salt lashed on the roads which were in the main dry meant some exercise was required at an unknown location, great day out and quiet roads although we did spot the dreaded Motorhomes appearing, no doubt being brought out of hibernation waiting for the off so they can clutter up our roads and leave their shit everywhere.

I see Highland council are spending cash on building motorhome stopping places and improving toilets (maybe they are getting bigger trowls to bury the shit? ) Be good if ALL the councils spent some money on the roads, they are in a shocking state, I know they are strapped for cash and of course the priority must be diversity training and building unisex bogs in the council offices but some tarmac here and there wouldn't go amiss. I used to think Ireland had terrible roads but with EU cash they are now brilliant, then Romania the first time I went there the roads were shocking but hey ho they are pretty good now, I haven't been back to Ukraine to check on their progress roads wise but I'm pretty sure we are slowly getting to the top of the first world shit roads league.

Trying to be arty....and failing

We also went for a walk around the hermitage at Dunkeld another day, forgotten how nice this place is and the good news it was quiet. The A9 is an absolute pleasure just now (never thought I'd say that), traffic is very light and no stress. I was thinking, if this is "business" only travel then 80 -90% of the normal traffic must be tourist based in one way or another, the hospitality industry must be on its knees, hopefully it will all open up soon (although the A9 will be again a road to avoid)

This looked like a bear from a distance and I didn't have my Bear spray, luckily we don't have Bears (yet)
Waterfalls are always relaxing

A tad draughty though
