Late Afternoon Reflections …
Catching the last of the daylight by Ardgathen this afternoon. Grateful not to be facing a fourth night without heat and light and sparing a thought for the many who are.

Flower Power …
Winter well and truly arrived today as Storm Arwen reached us. While we sit inside wondering, as the lights dip, how long we’ll continue to have power for, I can’t help but marvel at these hardy wee summer plants still hanging on in there by the front door …! 💙😊

Walk (170) Rafford-Califer Viewpoint Circular (Moray)

The undoubted focal point on the route is the celebrated viewpoint on Califer Hill, where there is a marvellous vista over the Forres area, with Findhorn Bay particularly prominent, and with the cliffs of the ‘Black Isle’ and the Sutors of Cromarty further away over the Moray Firth, providing an impressive backdrop. On a clear day, the hills of Caithness are visible … 🙂

Windswept And Interesting …!
Stormy seas on the Moray Coastal Path today. With the wind at our backs, heading out was easy. The same can’t be said for the return route over open ground from Duffus….. 💨💨💨😱😁
