Wild weeing…it’s a new form of sport that my Mum has invented!
Firstly, you have to have a weak bladder…or have consumed more fluid than your bladder can hold. Secondly, you have to then decide that the aforementioned fluid needs to leave your body in the middle of nowhere…without a public convenience in sight. Thirdly, you have to decide upon a spot in which to air your lady or gentleman bits. Fourthly, if there is such a word as ‘fourthly’! – you have to master the art of not urinating upon your boots! This is my Mum heading up into the trees…after slipping into the ditch…for a wild wee – and as her boots were already wet, she didn’t have to worry about ‘fourthly’!
Last night was good…we had a little fire on the shores of the loch outside the cottage – we did check with the landowners first, and my aunt is a bit of an outdoors specialist as she taught kids in forest schools! Mr WLB learnt how to get a fire started, and learnt some songs for drumming. There were toasted marshmallows too – which I resisted of course. It was such a gorgeous evening and a beautiful location!
This morning we had a bit of a sleep…it’s been all early mornings and my Mum and aunt and Mr WLB wanted some shut-eye…I was wide awake at 5.20am but managed to resist banging that drum and waking them all up!
We headed out to a little secluded nature hide that Mr WLB and I found when we were here in January. It has stunning views and we saw lots of seals…six in one little gathering at one point. Thankfully, the nature hide provides binoculars as these were left at home yet again…we’ve never managed to get them to Scotland! There was a seal on the far side of a little outcrop that was sunning itself, and then seals were following the kayaks…but the kayackers had no idea as they just kept looking where they were heading…this kind of thing would happen to me. And as it was a nature hide, I didn’t think it appropriate to yell at them to turn around!
Then we drove to Pollock – a rather secluded hamlet in the middle of Sunnart. It is a bit of a drive – not in terms of distance, but gradients! Freddie Freelander was pleased to arrive in one piece I think…and so were my passengers. We had a mooch around there…it’s mainly walking and bird-spotting and fishing country…and as we weren’t really in the market for any of these things, we decided to head to the viewpoint and have lunch! Now my picture does not do justice in the slightest to the beauty of the surroundings…it was gorgeous.
Once we had finished lunch, we mooched back to the cottage via Strontian shops…as Mr WLB wanted to buy sausages and a lottery ticket! He is planning on a loch-side BBQ tonight – although it has just started raining! And he is also planning a lottery win so that we don’t have to head back home!
Once we got back to the cottage, I headed over to the gym for a good workout…and grabbed a shower afterwards…and am planning on a nice relaxing evening. Tomorrow we might head back to Oban for a final fishy feast!
Breakfast: Smoked salmon, scrambled eggs, cherry tomatoes, and wilted spinach.
Another gorgeous day of smoked produce! Let’s hope that smoke isn’t synned! I decided to have a bigger brekkie of mini smoked salmon fillets, scrambled eggs, cherry tomatoes, and wilted spinach. Lunch was a grab’n’go option…fruit with smoked chicken, and my HEAs and HEBs. Dinner was more smoked salmon mini fillets with salad, and my snack was Ryvita topped with garlic and herb Philadelphia with smoked venison and a banana.
Exercise: 5 minutes treadmill, 50 minutes weights and sit-ups, 10 minutes rowing machine.
