21st June Loch Kernsary Walk

Today was our day off so after a lay in and a long breakfast we went for a circular walk around Loch Kernsary which is 10km in total.

We went armed with a coffee each, quiche, camera and our newly purchased binoculars. We went in search of glimpsing an Eagle. Sea or Golden we would settle for either as a lot of people on the campsite have been in to us in the office boasting about their sightings.

As it is a walk we have done before we knew of a few places where we could sit and have a sip of coffee and watch the skies above. Unfortunately we drew a blank on the eagle but we did see other things including; Stags, Meadow Pippits, Great Northern Divers and Buzzards.

We couldn’t help but notice how much greener the landscape was now that the trees were in leaf and the grass and ferns have all began to come back after the winter.

When we got back to the van we carried out the usual tradition of having a nice pint of beer which we drank sat on a picnic table over looking Loch Ewe.

The plan for the rest of the day is to watch a bit of Tennis now that Wimbledon has began, enjoy a nice meal and then watch more TV.

We are not back on duty until 4pm tomorrow.

About Dean

Angela and I decided that there was more to life than working hard to keep up the payments on the mortgage, to pay the gas, electric, phone bills etc. etc. SO............ In 2008 we sold our house, I initially took a year off (Unpaid) and Angela handed in her notice! We bought a motorhome and set off for a year of travelling! This was the best thing we had done in our lives (Apart from getting married) and we have no regrets. During the year I managed to secure a redundancy package which felt very strange. Almost sad as I had worked for the same company for 19 years (BT). It was always our plan to have a whole year off before thinking about the 'W' word. We began applying to the Camping and Caravanning Club (CCC) for the position of Holiday site assistants in August 2009. After the interview, work experience and induction we were finally given a contract at the CCC site in Inverewe (Scotland). Our plan is to work through the summer in the UK then head to Europe to overwinter before coming back to work the following summer season. Hopefully these few words and our blog will inspire others to get off the hamsters wheel and see that there is more to live than having a house and material things. A cliche I know but this is not a rehearsal, life is too short!!! Since our first contract in Scotland we have worked a winter contract in Oxford (never again!) not Oxford but a winter contract. Hereford for two years, living in a yurt for one! And Cornwall. In between our working we have also travelled a bit. Hopefully this website will give you an insight into our alternative lifestyle. Get out there and live the dream!
