    John & Jennifer have been given a large file of instructions and a big list of jobs. So hopefully they will have enough to keep them busy until our return. A big thank you to them for looking after the animals and house in our absence, we hope they enjoy Ashburton & Seil while we are away. But what will we be getting up to in the next 5 weeks? Watch this ...

    ... weeks of September it now seemed that the landscape was awash. Little waterfalls trickled here and there, rivers were in spate - thankfully all had bridges. The path became a stream in places. However my waterproofs did their job and it certainly wasn't cold. Only my feet were sodden.

Next stop was the Glennfinnan Viaduct, which is better known as the bridge from Harry Potter. We actually got there at 2.40 and the train (the Jacobite) was due to go over the bridge just after 3 so we decided to stay and watch for it. The view point was up a bit of a hill but gave a great view of the bridge and the train ...

    ... that is why I was in Oban.
    It's so hard to get used to the winter months here in the highlands as it isn't light until about 8am and the sun sets about 4pm. I don't like driving in the dark when it is pouring with rain and I don't know the roads.

    ... hill and over to Port William and hut we stayed at. On arrival, there was only one other lady, holidaying from Auckland and then shortly after came a DOC worked from Invercargill on holiday as well. But by bedtime there were many, including 3 fishermen who came stocked with everything you could ever wish for out int he back country and everyone was enjoying their company, food and coals to stoke the fire. Before dinner we walked out onto both the hut ...
