A camp adventure




The lad and I went North this week taking a car stuffed with camping gear and emergency chocolate. We were headed to the aptly named Archiestown in Speyside. Our tent has it's own living space with room for a table and chairs. We also had a dishwasher and a fridge - of the camping kind.

We had true Scottish weather - rain, hail, wind and evenings so cold that you could see your breath, making me thankful that I packed mittens. Many an hour was spent listening to the rain and reading. There was time to let imagination flow - I thought that the view of the trees through the tent window plastic looked like an Impressionist painting.

And then the sun came out and the world became even more glorious.

Mittens and nice wool socks, I hope. It looks like great fun. As always, your photos are lovely and evocative.

The "dishwasher" was really leaving the dishes out in the rain, wasn't it? :)

How wonderful to be getting away and letting your soul take a breather.

I got a kick out of your fridge/dishwasher!

I have a fridge/dishwasher just like yours, but mine is yellow.
There is nothing like reading in a tent with no other worries calling to you.

We must be having the same weather, when I feel sorry for the tourists I'll think of your adventure, and things are really what you make them.
