It's chilly enough in the evenings to light the fire but during the day the sun has shone and it's been beautiful. Walking on Letterewe Estate. It wasn't a massive walk but it was lovely never the less and the intense light at this time of year gives such colour to the sky and surrounding landscape.
We celebrated Niels' birthday at the Kylesku Hotel. It only reopened last week after major building and renovation work.The season hasn't quite got going yet and we had the restaurant almost to ourselves. The food was good, and we tucked in before I remembered the obligatory food pictures! The views from the restaurant windows even on a gloomy march evening are breathtaking.
A friend asked about my 'new' table I said I'd post a picture on here. Two old trestles left over from the house build and some spare floor boards...and a drop of Annie Sloan paint! And out of not much I made myself a solid practical work table. Niels wondered if I should paint out 'Wicks' but I think it adds to the 'make do' look of something for nothing...almost.
Great work on that table! And as ever, lovely views.
A belated Happy Birthday to Niels. Did you get a good view of the eclipse?
Thank you Lucille for Happy Birthday wishes. We did sort of see the eclipse but it was quite cloudy and I didn't really have anything to see it with. Our neighbour kindly let me borrow his welding visa/helmet and I could see the moon quite clearly in front of the sun for a little bit. It did get very overcast and darkish. I'll put my feeble attempts at recording it on here tomorrow!
I swear I hadn't read your post when I titled the post I've just written! Having just finished it I came to have a look around blogs I haven't visited for while, and saw your title.
Glad you also had a good day for your bit of a walk!
