Conversation first thing in the morning, a few days ago
Gail, where are we going to go for our walk with M and J this week?
Well Bertie, I promised to show them the nice route by Cowie Water, near Stonehaven. You like that one, don't you?
I do Gail, but do you think M will manage it? There's a rather steep section, rough, with lots of tree roots and loose stones, and I seem to remember that our friend once said she preferred flat walks.
She did Bertie, but that was pre-Pandemic. I do believe M will soon be sprinting up Munros after all the intrepid hiking she and J have been doing these past few months.
Post-walk conversation, back home.
Gosh Gail, that was fun, those huge old beech trees beside the burn are particularly impressive. And you were right, I was under-estimating your former German teacher.
Now Bertie, I see you have only posted the photos that I took. M emailed us a couple of lovely ones too. They turned out rather better than mine in fact. Why don't you put those on the blog?
Well Gail, they are indeed excellent pictures, but I fear they might get us arrested. Remember that people from separate households are supposed to keep two meters (or for those who read my last post, three and a third Berties), apart.
Bertie, don't worry, we can soon sort that out...
