Grand.

We had a lovely day out at Portencross today. It's becoming a habit to try and visit here each year towards the end of the summer holidays. This year a few friends came along too.

We passed the peacock, climbed to the top of the castle to admire the views (and spiders), wandered along to the jetty busy with fishermen, then took a short hike to the beach for a picnic and play. Some even went for a dip. I took lots of photos of Arran, the light kept changing and it was beautiful. We were first to arrive and last to leave.

What a beautiful place. The sea looks so inviting. I can understand that you were reluctant to leave.

So beautiful! I love the sky in these photos and the way the light shifts throughout the day.

It looks beautiful. I thought - I'd like to go there. Googled it - and realised its a bit far away! I'm in Sussex!!
Oh well - your photos made me appreciate it.
I can't believe we're heading towards the end of Summer holidays. You can definitely feel Autum is in the air - just waiting to arrive.
