But I fear my owner is losing her grip.
It makes sense, does it not, to check the tides when planning a beach walk?
Sigh... It was the highest of high spring tides when we arrived at the car park, and with no nice firm sand to walk on, we instead headed in the other direction, through grassy meadows and along the low cliffs towards Slain's Castle.
In fact Gail even got that wrong, and to begin with we set off on the track which led to a dead end. But every cloud has a silver lining, and the boggy area we cut across to find the right path was decorated with these bright and delicate little pink flowers.
In English they are called 'Ragged Robin' but I prefer their Gaelic name, Caorag Lèana, which translates as 'spark of the marsh'.
Finally I just want to shout out how delighted I am to be taking part in Rosy and the LLB gang's Flower Friday once again, and also to wish Rosy the Happiest of Happy First Birthday!
