Sasha and I went to visit Dunnotar on a sunny Wedensday. The  photo above was taken from the start of the path that leads down and then up to the ruins.

There were quite a few tourist cars in the parking lot this sunny fall day.

Sasha and I met up this weekend with an old pal, whom I had not seen since the year 1970. John aka BRUMMIE was in the Royal Artillery when I was In Fort Henry. We ran around as 20 year old young soldiers do. All of these times were discussed, laughed at and remembered. John and Ellen are true City Slickers and they enjoyed their visit to Pilmuir and the animals.

A sunny Day

Ellen fell in love with Jasmine.
