|Monday 1st September 2014. Climbed the Fort Augustus flight in the afternoon with a crowd of spectators. Evelyn so good at this now she kept her slippers on and managed a visit to the pie shop between locks. Proceeded the short distance to the idyllic Kytra Lock nestled deep between 2 sheltering hills. There is no through road and the cottages are now holiday homes but were empty as Ev confirmed before filling their bins with our rubbish. |
The lock keeper (not the usual one Linda who hands out the gold stars if you have your lifevest on) came over with a pile of wood for us to make a fire in the pit cut into the bank. We had a BBQ and then a lovely fire swopping around between our 'chairs’ - pallet, tree stump, paving slab - golly we’re posh.
They are having fun - honest. John is recovering from carrying the tree stump to the party venue.
Testing the lights - yes we know we’re tied on
