It's fun to go for a walk in the woods with a couple of pals, don't you think?
Last Sunday our intrepid friends M and J showed Gail and me a short but lovely route around Newmill Hill.
Fun, but as of the next day, illegal in Scotland (and the rest of the UK). The new rules, in response to the worsening Covid-19 situation, now say one human can only meet up with one other human for outdoor exercise. As far as I'm aware, there are no limits on dogs.
So at the moment, Gail can take me for walks with J, or with M, but not with M and J all together... Unless they all want to be arrested.
Oh, and the walk must be not more than five miles from Aberdeen city boundary.
On Wednesday Gail and I went for a wee trot around Tollohill Wood - on the edge of Aberdeen - with Muriel. (And if there were a couple of other friends not far off, that was pure happenstance...)
I am pleased to report that Muriel - a lady of most excellent taste - brought along some cheesy oatcakes especially for me!
It was a crystal clear morning and we stopped briefly to admire the view from the lookout point.
Sadly the snow capped mountains we could see in the far distance are currently out of bounds... Sigh.
Happy Nature Friday friends! And thanks to the LLB Gang for keeping our favourite blog hop going. Gail is feeling in need of things to look forward to just now.
