I am trying to get a bit (ok a lot) fitter. So I have started walking for half an hour or so every day. This was where I walked this morning, Ardrossan North shore (my favourite picture taken a few years back by my brother Mike.
I was wearing a new pair of trainers today, but unfortunately they rub my foot and so I ended up walking bare foot along the sand – the shore front was the last part of my walk.
Love this picture of Ailsa Craig by Brian Johnstone, beautiful light effects.

The stormy theme continues into the weekend, and it looks a bit like this:
And like this in Ardrossan. (Pictures from Ardrossan & Saltcoats Herald on Facebook.)
Still moving hopefully onwards in pursuit of summer 😎
Thus Nature sorrows, and forgets her sorrow ;
And Reason soberly approves her way :
Why should we shut oor een against to-morrow
Because our sky was clouded yesterday ?

A stormy picture of the bottom end of my parish, taken from Stevenston on 2nd June by Three Towns Photography.
Looking forward to the long promised heatwave 😎. (It’s good to travel hopefully, especially when you live on the west coat of Scotland!)
The other large apple tree in the manse garden in now in full bloom. It spends most of its life in shadow so the blossom is always later than on the main tree which gets the sun all day.
This tree is in our “wild corner” and is always surrounded by beautiful bluebells at this time of the year.
Off to Edinburgh for today’s photograph – wonderful evening shot taken from Salisbury Crags above Holyrood by Tom at Weephotos.
Feeling nostalgic for the City, so many happy memories…

Another lovely picture of Ailsa Craig today, taken by Brian Johnstone. This one is called (appropriately) “chip off the old block”.
“May every sunrise
bring you hope.
May every sunset
bring you peace”
Today’s beautiful picture is a view of Ailsa Craig taken from Prestwick Beach, by Brian Johnstone.
