Walking the Course

Walking the Course


A foggy and frosty morning greeted us when we visited Sefton Park in Liverpool for a British Athletic Association cross country event in which our grandson Ethan was running in the under 11s event. He came 11th out of a large field.

On the left he can be seen in just a small part of the starting line-up, and on the right our son Martin accompanies Ethan and Toby as they walk the course before the race.



Rain over the Loch

Rain over the Loch


The Loch is Carlingwark Loch on the edge of the small town of Castle Douglas in Dumfries & Galloway, and the weather, with its low cloud and the rain sheeting down is, I must admit, fairly typical for the west coast of Scotland at almost anytime of the year.

Even so, it is beautifully atmospheric.
