Broughty Ferry

A lovely day out now the kids are off school. More Wullies, of course. Windy but beautiful, I think you’ll agree. More photos on FB, if you’re there.

Snapshots of Pescara

I attended Captivating Criminality 6 on the coast of the Adriatic. Pescara was once an Olympic venue. Pier Paolo Passolini passed there on his coastal roadtrip. It was very hot and surprisingly humid, so you can imagine how enervated I was (melting! melting!). Though I knew co-host Fiona Peters, I met folks I’ve known online…

Mich/shenanigans

As I get ready to head off on another journey (yes, but I am really slowing down after this! July is EMPTY of to-dos) I thought I should get at least one more catch-up post of some photos here. Michigan trip for the medieval congress, friends, and family. Good times! Great to see Suzy perform…

Sunday Sun

These are actually from last week as it’s a bit dreich today. I am planning to catch up on things — many sights to show you from the last few months —  but it’s been a bit hectic yet this month. But real summer soon (okay, maybe not the weather — I’m okay with dreich)….

Home Town Jaunt

Made a brief trip to the home town with my brother to see our other brother and my dad and pick up some things. Weird how much the town has changed yet our street so little. My older brother lives in my grandparents’ house, which we lived in when I was born, then moved into…

Tay River Cruise

We had a great day out on Saturday; being paranoid, I took the old phone so fewer pictures and none of the great sightings of dolphins right up close to the boat! Or the seal who popped up and gave us a look like we were disturbing her day — and loads of jellyfish which Charlotte…

Dundee Botanic Gardens

The Dundee Botanic Gardens: delights aplenty, a penguin and more. Many pix on the ‘book if you trawl there.  

A Wander Around Broughty Ferry

As we’re off on another adventure today, I better get some pictures up from the last family outing. A warm if grey day kept everyone away from the shore, so we mostly had it to ourselves which was delightful. More pix on the ‘book if you’re there.

Sunday Shenanigans

Lots to catch up on — pictures, posts, reviews — but in the mean time, it’s family day. Half off sale is still on at Smashwords and hoping for some reviews of HBW5 soon! More wanderings tomorrow —

At the McManus

The Beano takes over museum, but there’s also a portraits show on and of course old favourites — possibly obsessing a little too much about Duncan‘s Riders, but there it is.
