our lane with view of the Criffel (1800ft)
Next day the gang assemble at Dumfries House
and a great little news item here if you're interested to know more about the house - this was made in 2007 before it was open to the public:
Three little maids in the Summer House
Loved the education garden best of all - complete with Bill, Ben, friends and flora
wonderful grasses and teasels (is that what they are?)
then to another of the beautiful greenhouses
but finally to the pub - the wonderful Steamboat Inn
for a feast and a half
and the next day - 'I see no ships' but great views across the sea
and a glimpse of Jessie King's house
Then all too soon, after lots of laughs, happy reminiscences, amazing food and even more amazing company, the four days had come to an end . . .
and it was farewell to the Criffel, the estuary
and, last but not least, our wonderful hosts
and as we sped south we caught a silvery glimpse of the wonderful Carsethorn
Will we no' come back again? . . . . I hope we will !!
