Enjoying the Scottish Summer (1) – G and T on the balcony! Chris, Marwyn and Fi at the tail end of our reunion.

On the Balcony – aperitif time!

Enjoying the Scottish Summer (2) – it was such a lovely day today, warm even (air temp up to 24C), that I needed a swim in the sea. North Berwick 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 was lovely – though the water is about as warm as the Baltic 🇸🇪

At North Berwick

I simply had to have a go at making a bow. I’d saved a bit of branch from the tree trimming last Autumn, and once it was properly dried out I shaped it and added a frog, adjustable with a bit of silver wire in grooves on the stick.


The hair comes from an old fiddle bow – but I must really get hold of some black hair to make it look really traditional!
