Walking into some remote places

The trouble is, and the reason why there has been the dreaded 'blogging gap' yet again is partly due to a wonderful colourful sunny walk we did a while ago
It has been almost impossible to narrow the photos down to a sensible few 
I've tried hard and have managed to be ruthless in my choice...but there still seem rather a lot!
Here goes anyway and I'm sorry they go on a bit...I'm just making up for lost time as usual! It was simply a wonderful day. The colours at this time of year are unbelievably lovely. A Ginger tinge with russets and yellows and golds
Our own private beach for lunch, and yes, it was warm and you could paddle, but the water was a wee bit on the chilly side!
Streams to cross
We didn't see a soul all day. There is nowhere else in Britain that is quite as remote and empty as this part of the world, at least not on such a large scale as this. The sun rises just lately have been beautiful, and despite the red sky in the morning warning the days have gone on to be sunny and gentle. A last fling perhaps before winter arrives

This is quite the most perfect garden! With quite the most perfect views.The couple living here built the house and the garden themselves. The description of the garden can be found here The owner is also the gardener at Dundonnell House.  He must be terribly busy. Once we'd marvelled at the garden and flowers we couldn't remember the names of, we wandered into the polytunnels. Apples and perfect pears and nectarines and strawberries and tomatoes and every kind of vegetable and fruit. And then there were the honey bees and lovely coloured hens...and as for the tea and cakes! We started with apple cake because that's sort of somehow good for you, but it seemed bad manners  after they had gone to so much trouble not to have a cream meringue. It was a truly enjoyable day and a garden I didn't realise was there so it was a very happy discovery!
