We had been camped here for eight nights – so we left our marks! A couple of days of sun and rain should fix it.

MX-5 packed

The MX-5 is not big enough for two to go camping, so we need some extra luggage room. The boot bag fits securely and adds 50l of extra space.

Morning walk – Loch Morlich and Glen More

Last day today – Edinburgh for lunch tomorrow and then back to Lincoln. Time for one more walk, early morning at Loch Morlich and Glen More. I took my coffee with me in a flask and a couple of croissants.

It was bright and below zero and despite the mild weather this week the edges of the Loch were frozen.

‪Working holiday – Making technology work for your business @prwilsonmedia @OctagonT

I am working today – so photo of the day is a choice between the shelves at Tesco, I need some milk, or the view I have whilst working on my presentation for “Making technology work for your business”. The view won.

Some of the tools I will be demonstrating as part of my presentation are the tools I am using right now, so I can comfortably work away from the office.

Looking at the weather forecast for the week today looks like to coldest day I will have – it was 1c when I went out at about 11am. It does not look like I will see any snow this trip – except this in Colchester last week.

I headed out to walk in the forest near Inverdruie and to get a geocache that the boys and I walked past last summer.

Here it is

It was easy today to find somewhere quiet to set up for lunch.

I wrote this whilst watching the Falcons playing Green Bay in the NFC Championship game – the Falcons and Matt Ryan have controlled the first half. I have my iPod hooked into the TV with the Apple HDMI adaptor, I also packed a 1m HDMI cable. Glad I am not at last week’s Hapimag Bowness timeshare as the wifi there was nearly nonexistent. I could not use my NFL Game Pass live there, I had to avoid the scores and downloaded the games offsite on better wifi. The wifi here at Scandinavian Village is great.

Here comes the second half.
