Today was Dean’s birthday so it began with smoked salmon from the Sleepy Hollow Smokehouse in Aultbea. Presents and cards were opened, then we got ready to go for a walk along the River Ewe. The weather was fantastic with the sun shining all day, so we set off in just shirt sleeves – unheard of!
We were out for about three hours and not only were the views along the river beautiful with the hazy sunshine, we also met Pinky & Perky, two Saddleback pigs belonging to the Inveran Estate along with Winston, the miniature Donkey!
Once again, we spotted a herd of Stags on the surrounding hills overlooking Loch Maree.
We had planned to go to the Poolewe Hotel for dinner, but the weather was so nice we ended up sitting outside looking over the Loch with a bottle of wine, kindly donated by Philip & Julia!
As the evening wore on, we retired inside and Angela made Spaghetti Bolognese followed by more red wine! Happy days!
