Rainclouds

Ok someone has stolen the sun, could you give it back now please? It's done nothing but rain today. Actualy that totally matches my mood but that's a whole other post.

Camping was a success - well it was sunny when we pitched the tent. Then the early hours of Wednesday the rain started and carried on until Friday lunchtime.
But it didn't stop us having a great time. I haven't uploaded all our pics yet, to be honest we didn't take a great load of pictures - too buy enjoying ourselves.

Wednesday we went to Linlithgow Palace. Beautiful Palace but as it has no roof it was a bit wet traipsing around. :D But we stood where Mary Queen of Scots was born - got to love history. Also did you know she was 6 foot tall? In the 1500s she must have been like a giant and I think I have it tough LOL


Then we had a look around Saint Michael's Church which is still a working church.

Then me and the dog stood outside Subway in the rain while the smalls sat dry and warm inside eating their Subways. :D

In the afternoon we checked out the Annett House Museum and Garden. we're still not sure why there was a Scotty (Star Trek) memorial display as he has no connections with Scotland as he was Canadian born and bred and his parents were Irish but hey ho. :D

Thursday we went on a steam choo choo at Bo'ness.
I took this pic on the bridge that my poor dog nearly had a panic attack crossing.

I'll tell you all about the rest of our hollybobs once I've uploaded the pics ;)

Good news while we were away though - my friend that has beaten cancer before had the results from her biopsy and all is clear. Woohoo!! That totally made my day.

The whole star trek scotty thing might be because the character Scotty was supposed to be from Aberdeen...maybe :)

What gorgeous pictures. I love Linlithgow and my niece was married in that very church. I've had a very happy wee reminisce (sorry if that's spelled wrongly) xxx
