A trip to the Falls of Clyde

On Saturday we went down to New Lanark with the intention of having a wander around the mill and generally just playing at tourists for the day.  Unfortunately, someone *cough* didn't realise it was only the Glasgow schools that went back last week, so the place was packed.  I guess the weather helped a bit too!  It was such a beautiful day, finally a weekend of sunshine and warmth.  We were so excited to be out in it that we decided to just ditch the museum visit and have a wander to see the Falls of Clyde instead.  The last time we went was on a rainy day in autumn which made for a nice contrast when I was looking back at pictures the other night.  

See that waterfall up there? ^^^ Can you spot the guy standing in the middle of it?  I was sort of horrified and jealous when I saw him!

We tried to get a picture at the falls with Jakey but as you can see, he was having none of it.  Although he managed to sit nicely until the second before the timer went off obviously.  That dog is crazy restless!  I'm sure we'll find another chance to wrangle him into shape...

Has anyone visited?  We're already planning to go back at some point - maybe third time lucky for finally getting into the mill?
