building and riding
Also,at last, we have good enough weather to grab an hour or two out on the bike. Using a turbo trainer is all very well indoors in inclement weather but it does get difficult to stay enthusiastic about doing it...
We're very glad that like Imogen, Storm Katie has chosen a more Southerly track!
The Pirate was unsure about leaving his "stamping ground" of 25 years, South Ayrshire...but now we are in East Ayrshire we are discovering a network of lanes.
This toll house is by Ochiltree
Last week we rode 25 miles, but stayed within six miles of our village!
Today we rode through Sinclairston, skirted Ochiltree then found a "new" lane to take us over to the road to Stair.
Once home, with the rain still holding off, we did an afternoon of garden construction...the first deep bed is looking good,with beetroots and carrots and a few parsnips...
The much traveled fruit bushes also need re-potting into tubs...but we've done enough for today!
