Bright sunny day so we decided to do a training run for our coming marathon. The local radio said beware of ice and they were right it was slippy until we turned round to run home. We parked about 3 miles from home at the kerry river and ran down the single track road along the coast on the other side of the bay to our village. We ran about 15 miles but stopped to chat with friends and to take photos along the way.
Pics are : The start with Kerry river, Margot and our little Suzuki

On Tue Andy drove over to the other coast to pick up stuff for the school. It's much colder other there -1 C at lunch time. Some roads were still icy due to lack of salt, so it was a slow careful drive. The school trailer it excellent for carrying things as its nearly as big as a small transit van inside.
Picture taken in Dingwall Lorry park, on way home, too big to fit in Tesco's car park. Still icy everywhere and shortcut to Tesco's needed crampon's but had to make do with a wall to grab hold of.
