{{Lovely picture Norc, nice spot for a buckie or two while doing a spot of drunk fishing. And grateful for the link too- some great work there as always Norc, but in especial love the last two.


Azriel- my mum was looking through the pictures I had taken on my camera one day and complained that, "its just a lot of pictures of clouds."

I love clouds, and I take tons of photos of them, not just for the aesthetics, but that too, but also for study to recreate the effects if possible in my art stuff. }}}

Very Happy so, I'm not the only loon looking up at the sky Smile

I too had a look at your art Norc. Its really good stuff. There's one in particular I'm fond of, 'she' looks so...deep, there's more going on to her than she'll let on. Its near the bottom, sideways on.

Lots of pretty pictures on the previous page. Smile

It's been surprisingly cool for August in Delaware, which was nice while we were camping, though it's also rained a bit, which is less fun. But I think I'd still take this over multiple 100+ days.

Ive done seriously stupid things to my hair. I just wish my hair would grow as quickly as a mans hair does, especially when Ive shorn it down too far. And the God awful colours its come out, nothing anything like the colour I did want Smile

Yeah, hubris exists. Like thinking you can cut the back of your head by feel. Sometimes you just gotta swallow your pride and plunk down 10 quid.

You must realize how much this calls for a picture.  I mean, can't you just feel it?  Come on, be a pal.

I'll have to work on that, though the results may be unsettling.

{{{ Its that time of year again- the Cowal Highland Gathering is this weekend, and my better half's sister is visiting from Italy. Yesterday in fact.
So it was off to the airport to meet her and a day out in Glasgow.
But that would be to get ahead of the crabbit.  Mad
You see my better half assured me that we had to get the 10.50am ferry, imperative in fact that we do so- but there was a snag. She also, for some reason  Suspect  felt I required a haircut and swarfega scrub before meeting her sister. And its not even the right time of year for my bath  Mad This gave me from between 9 am when the hairdresers opened to feasibly 10.45 to make it to the ferry.
First hairdresser was shut till 9.30 so a non-starter setting the crabbit in.  Mad Second hairdresser was open but already had four youths waiting with ridiculously complicated hair, by the time it came to me it would be too late, so extra crabbit increase topped by bonus crabbit because you know, young folk.  Evil or Very Mad Third hairdresser? Bingo- two people already waiting, one in chair, but two waiting old men with less hair on their heads than I have in one nostril! So in I go and wait my turn, crabbit abating.
But no, the two old buggers are talkers, real talkers, they ain't here for a haircut, they've come for a day out!  Mad Poor hairdressers can hardly get the job done for them turning to talk to them all the time!  Mad  So naturally back up comes the crabbit as the clock ticks.  Evil or Very Mad
Eventually I get  in the chair and its 10.25. Its going to be tight! Turns out squeaky bum crabbit rising tight!  Shocked  I get out the hairdressers shorn and crabbit with 2 minutes to cover a 5 minute walk- which means I need to run, along the main street full of folk.  No  But, must get the 10.50!! So run I do, reaching the ferry amid gasps and wheezes just as its about to pull out  No  No - but the ferry man spots me and waves me down, holding up the ferry for a few extra moments to allow me to clamber aboard.  cheers He pulls the plank up right behind me and immediately we are off.  Very Happy
Now all I need to do is find my better half on-board, regale her with my heroics in getting there and garner the deserved crabbit soothing.  Nod  :hug:
She wasn't there!!! She'd missed the bloody ferry!  Mad  Evil or Very Mad
Half an hour on my own getting there and an hour waiting on the ferry go to back and come back over again!!!  Evil or Very Mad
So an hour in Gourock- which feels like about 10 hours anywhere else, only even more boring.  Mad

Stuck on a ferry on my own taking pictures!



I've always got a Shire vibe from this hill-



Weather was mixed, wasn't cold thought the wind could get up occasionally on the water and fortunately rain never really came to much, but was alternatively grey and cloudy and blue and bright- sometimes in the space of a few minutes.





Approaching Gourock



Not too much to photograph in Gourock.

They have shut off access to the older parts of the pier- I used to sit out here waiting on the ferry, now this is as close as I can get.



The Gourock train station behind the ferry terminal-



Though like everywhere in Scotland if you look closely, and look behind things like the main town skyline, you might spot small curiosities-



So my better half arrived on the next ferry and then I got some more crabbit, not from her, my crabbit doesn't last a minute in the face of her smile, but bloody train tickets! First the damage to my sporran and secondly how many I needed.
Return for the ferry, then a return to paisley to change for the Ayr train to get out to the airport, thats a single, then another single from there to get to Glasgow Central, then a single from Glasgow back to Paisley, where I could then use the return portion of my initial ticket to get the rest of the way to Gourock and the ferry with its ticket. By the end of the day my sporran was not just lighter it was also stuffed with damned tickets!!

The journey to the airport takes you into the Lowlands of Scotland, and the heart of her grazing lands. Ayr has a famous cattle market and some of the highest quality beef in the world comes from there.
The famous mountain pass I have mentioned before you take by road from Dunoon to Glasgow, the Rest and Be Thankful, is the old drovers road by which cattle was driven from Highlands to Lowlands and the markets of Ayr.










Anyhow better half's sister was as lovely as she is and we had a great day- well they did shopping, I did bag holding and waiting outside, which is still better than shopping and I got fed and occasionally patted on the head like a good dog.  Nod
But it did let me take some more pictures whilst they were in shops.
If you ever visit Glasgow always remember to look up.





















And so finally back home in the evening light!







Probably post some Highland Games stuff over the weekend }}}

I don't know if it applies to Scotshobbits, but I've got to admit Glasgow does look better for a bath. Nod
When I was there in the 80's most of that beautiful stonework was still covered in a century-thick coat of greasy black coal soot. I bet that was a long and expensive bath!
