Crinan

a walk along the Crinan Canal on Monday with my friend Sally, thankyou very much for a lovely day!
mirror reflections on the water
the view from the last gate at Crinan
and Ruaridh to throw sticks for, he's a good dog!

Could that be open water? I've almost lost the look of it... and certainly the feel. Will our spring ever come? ;-)

There a lot more winter here. But I know there dirt under the snow.

Gorgeous country! I hope to visit someday. Thank you for sharing your lens, and your pets! Cute Dog and Cat!

Michael, open sea, have paddled there in the past. . .
Peppylady, hope you get some melt soon!!
Jennifer, Scotland is beautiful, most folks here seem to holiday in Spain?
Katarina, I rarely leave Scotland, still haven't been all round it!

love the last gate pic best of all... but they're all fab. views like this make it easy to understand the love we humans have for our land.

I want to come and visit soon, especially since my ancestors originally hailed from there:)

How do you pronounce the dog's name?? Do you speak Gaelic?? I know there are different ones. Irish and Scottish and I can't remember the correct names for them both. Cryptic and I want to learn, but it is SO HARD! LOL

Claire,

Great photos, you live in a beautiful place. Regarding the second photo down - do you know the name of that type of boat? I love the style and would like to research them more.

Thanks
Andy

I wish I could be walking this area with you. Maybe some day if I keep wishing it hard enough, lol. I'm sure glad Reba & I got to walk with you along Kootenay lake last year.
