A trip to Dollar Glen








In case anyone's in any doubt about the faffing I went to trying to capture the cool misty effects of the river photo, Tam very kindly took some shots of me on the sly.  The bridge made a willing helper but I think it's time to start carrying my tripod and remote around everywhere in the case the occasion arises...

Another trip to Dollar!  The scenery was just as beautiful as it was in spring time, although the rain cut short our second trip into the castle.  We had a leisurely walk up the hill and delighted when we got to the point that the path went down hill again.  After getting nice and wet on the way back to the car, lunch at my favourite place was in order (Cafe Des Fleurs, for any future visitors to Dollar!).  It was our second time there and like the first visit, the sandwiches and cakes were to die for.  I'm definitely trying the scones next time though.  Or the other cakes...
