…not me, yet – next year I will definitely be joining in though!
And me joining in next year has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with the fact that the instructor was beautiful…an incredibly handsome Hungarian chap with a gorgeous foreign accent. Of course, my other half remains my ultimate #1 – but this chap was handsome!
It was hilarious watching them getting the hang of the Segway – they had Bambi legs and were a bit jerky to start with. I am the kind of person who instantly laughs when someone falls over – I will then immediately help, but I automatically laugh first – and so to have me taking pictures was not a good idea as I kept giggling and couldn’t get decent shots!
They came back with big smiles on their faces, but Mum was a little muddier than when she had headed off…and had taken a couple of tumbles! She still thought that it was great fun though – and hadn’t hurt herself either…which is always a bonus!
Before the Segway session Mum had another riding lesson. She did really well! We are wondering where all of her energy is coming from…she is blaming the garlic and hawthorne tablets she takes…I am wondering if they really are garlic and hawthorne!
Whilst my other half and my Mum had a mooch around some shops, I decided to go and enjoy my lunch in a scenic location – Fort William car park! But this is a car park with a view…
Once they got back we headed off behind Upper Achintore…which leads to a beautiful glen. We could see snow on Ben Nevis, but it was a gorgeous sunny day – cold, but gorgeous. The dog had a run, they ate their lunch (lovely smelling pork and stuffing batches!) and we just mooched really…taking in the niceness before heading back to our concrete jungle.
Whilst on our way to the beautiful glen, I got shouted out by some men laying Tarmac. They had just let a car drive down the Tarmac in front of my eyes…yet when they told me to go and I attempted to drive on it, they all shouted at me. I took the wimps option on the way back and diverted myself via side streets to avoid their angry glare. Maybe next time I come up here I will be able to see Freddie Freelanders legacy!
Tomorrow is my horsey driving lesson – which I am so excited about! Whilst I do that, my other half is having his day in Arisaig sea kayaking…he is braver than I am…so cold!
We really don’t want to go back but have had to start packing. I obviously want to see my family – and am really excited about seeing my niece and nephew – and my horses – but given the choice, we would trade our house for one up here without question. I have already enquirer about another five weeks here over the coming months!
Breakfast: Smoked bacon, mushrooms, tomatoes, spinach and scrambled egg.
A lovely food day. Brekkie was the same as yesterday and just as delicious today. My smoked salmon and Philli on Ryvita was amazing too! Dinner was a gorgeous chicken stew – chicken, tomatoes, broccoli, onion, carrots, leeks, swede, celery, mushrooms, garlic, stock, chilli flakes…a nice cupboard mix.
Exercise: A general mooch in a gorgeous glen!
