For a while Gail did occupy herself with diary reading and writing, then at noon, this:
"Come on Bertie, there's only a few hours of daylight left. We really ought to get some fresh air and exercise. I know, let's go and check out the waterfalls around Loch Torridon, they will be looking quite impressive just now."
Having established that there was an adequate supply of 'posing treats' in Gail's jacket pocket, I reluctantly agreed to brave the ongoing downpour.
After a couple of hours, bedraggled and aware that Gail's pocket was now empty, I made it quite clear I'd had enough.
I hope you enjoyed looking at the pictures at least...
Those waterfalls are pretty - glad ya at least got paid for posin wif em!ReplyDelete
wow I bet soon some people will come to ride that falls in barrels ;O) we got only a small amount of your rain, but the sky looks promising that we will get waterfalls too ;O)ReplyDelete
The raging water and waterfalls are beautiful and you are very brave to be on that bridge, Bertie!ReplyDelete
Yes I was brave wasn't I? So glad you spotted it Molly!Delete
OMD Bertie lad, all I could think was "don't get too close!!!" Those are some mighty impressive waters... That fire does look more inviting though. hugs and wags YAM-aunty xxx
Wow, what a beeYOUtiful place to walk! But only while there are treats, I totally agree.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing your beautiful waterfalls and for braving the elements to pose with them. We're glad to hear you were paid for your work.ReplyDelete
YIKES Bertie...Gail asked a lot of you to traipse about in the cold rain. Those are some fierce looking white water rapids under the foot bridge. OMDs did I enjoy the most lovely photos.ReplyDelete
AT LEAST, I hope, she didn't try to give you a bath afterwards.
Why with those waterfalls if you fell in you could be washed out to the North Sea. Can you swim Bertie?ReplyDelete
Sweet William The Scot
I can swim, but would not fancy my chances given the likelihood of being dashed against the rocks by the raging torrent..Delete
It looks like you had a great time AND got to get your paws dirty! Bonus fun time!! We are going running in a bit. Our pawrents cannot ride their bikes cuz it is too cold. Mom says it needs to be above freezing AND sunny. (She crashed a week ago when she tried to ride on the ice and snow.)ReplyDelete
Murphy & Stanley
We are super impressed by your Mom's cycling efforts (well Gail is anyway). But do tell her to stay safe. Riding on ice is generally not a good idea. The Norwegians use special studded tyres for riding on snow, but Norwegians can be a bit nuts...
Bertie, you don't know how nice it is to see WET...other than the few patches we have from the hose. Very hot and dry here.ReplyDelete
So it is pouring water from the skies AND you went to see waterfalls???? OK, we don't get it, but it looks like you had fun, and the waterfalls are very impressive. Hope you get some drier weather soon.ReplyDelete
Woos - Lightning, Misty, and Timber
Well, it was totally worth it for us Bertie..thanks for a beautimous walkie that we could enjoy from our couches(sorry you had to go out in the rain)!ReplyDelete
Rosy, Jakey & Arty
Wow, beautiful pictures!! Sorry you had to go out in the rain but we sure enjoyed your adventure, but the pic on the bridge kinda worried us!!ReplyDelete
Hazel & Mabel
First of all - you have a FIREPLACE!!! That is very lucky! I love those! I wish I had one. Also, I do not like how the rain gets in my eyes, but I still think I would have liked to be on that Walk with you. It looks like that place would have amazing sniffing! And it's kind of pretty for the eyes, too.ReplyDelete
Oh Bertie, you are one brave lad! I am super impressed with your bridge crossing...ALONE! Wowsa! I'm not sure I would have done that without Ma there. You did a FABulous job of posing Bertie!ReplyDelete
Well I guess today is the Parliamentary vote on Brexit. Thinking of you.ReplyDelete
Those waterfalls are lovely. Watching brexit stuff with interest and concern.ReplyDelete
That is gorgeous.ReplyDelete
We await your take on that Brexit vote, eh, Bertie?! Geez. What a disaster.
OH my Bertie, you have such beauty to bounce in. love your photos today and would like to see your part of the world. I came over to see why you would be worried about being a White blog, saw your comment on Yam... I vote your blog looks wonderful to me...my favorite pic today is YOU and the bridge.ReplyDelete
Hi Sandra and thanks for stopping by and commentingDelete
Toodle pip! Bertie.
PS I was very brave on the bridge, wasn't I?
What a beautiful place to hike! You're so lucky!ReplyDelete
