We took to the water again this afternoon, paddled over to Badachro, round Eilean Horrisdale & back to the harbour. The dolphin pair joined us twice during the trip - how lucky we are to get so close to them. We also saw an otter, eating a fish he'd caught.
On Sunday the school took the Minibus & trailer over to the East coast to the Red Rocks Mountain Bike Trails. We had sunshine all day and did most of the easier routes. green & blue, graded like ski runs.
We have just bought a secondhand mountain bike from one of the teacher at the school so it was Andy's first outing on it.
The group have a rest after the first hours and then we push on to the top with great views over to the Moray Firth and the Nairn coastline
The last few runs were on a Orange route which had sweeping banked bends and really big humps which you could get airborne off, if you were not too careful. Home to a wet day in Gairloch so we were in the right place today.
I'm a 10 yro collieXNewfoundland. My humans found me in a rescue kennels 9 yrs ago &a couple of years ago they moved up to Gairloch in Scotland. They love it here. I didn't like it at first, missed all my old pals & walking haunts. Now, I'm used to it, have new friends & the humans are always at home, so I get a great walk every day.
Sadly, our dear Jamilla went to the kennel in the sky back in September. Osteoporosis in her spine, which she'd coped remarkably well with, became too bad & she lost the use of her hind legs.
She will be a hard act to follow.
