Homeward bound

Good journey home. Left Nydie after saying goodbye to Colin at 9.30 in the morning. The journey was uneventful which was good… and after dropping the little ones off at Daddys, we were back in Norwich and very tired by 7.30 that evening. It was a lovely break and we all had lots of fun. Reenie has a ring on her finger and the children have lot of stories to tell their school chums when they start the new term!

On the way we passed Stirling and could see the Wallace Monument and Stirling Castle that we visited last year! We arrived about midday at Balloch Castle with about a two hour drive behind us. It was a bright day with some cloud so we were confident of not needing any rain coats. We walked from the car park at the...
