Walking in the countryside

We headed off in the golden sunshine, over to the other side of the village, past the Post Office and down this little path...
Climbing up the muddy slope to the near empty field.

Looking back at the village we'd just left.  Our little cottage is hidden behind the red roof golf club.  The Church is so beautiful...

We're nearly there Daisy Dog....I can see it now...

Getting closer...

Here we are, right in the middle of it.....

It would have been very impressive in its time.

Looking out of the 'window' to the sea directly beneath...

How could it fall into such ruin? 

We walked away from Slains and back the path we came.  I carried Daisy down the side of the hill to the fiercely cold sea...delightful on my feet and her muddy paws!

Look how clear it is..

And nearly back up to the top again...

We've made it...boy was it steep!

Back to the view over the beach and up to the village

And we're nearly home again!
Hopefully we can have more Autumnal adventures!!
