As I Walked Out …2

This is the day that is supposed to be hot. Looking out at the view first thing I saw the morning mist and decided to take myself to the Victorian water tower, before the sun really got going. Dug out my teeny radio and fixed it to the shuffle, pocketed the camera and set off with the intention of a half hour each way. As usual I got to my destination, turned round and got side tracked, disorientated and almost lost on the way back home!
Here are twelve wee pics of there and back, including some big vistas, the water tower, dry ski slope and minature railway. The big thing you are missing out on is the loud and continuous bird song. Excellent!
