Easy but good 65 mile Round the Forth bike ride on Sunday – taking in the Kincardine Bridge, Culross, the Forth Road Bridge, Hopetoun House, Linlithgow, the Kelpies and the last leg back home.
Rubbish run this morning in terms of speed – I think I left my get up and go in the pub last night – however great weather for it and took lots of pictures on route – I didn’t go much faster than these snails.
A wee walk to the pond this evening, which is a hive of activity. The cygnets are all present and correct; the ducks have discovered a hole under the fence and are exploring the path rather than the pond; Mummy (or Daddy) coot is getting a bit feisty with the baby coots, which I think is there way of trying to make the babies more independent; I could only see one of the adult moor hens tonight – hopefully the babies are safe and well hiding in the rushes; and finally the cows in the field next door have found a football to play with.
Finally some shopping – couldn’t resist this very girly cycle top – and a complete bargain at £8, including postage.
