Home again!

Breakfast at the wonderful Hungry Highlander

I’m home at last. What a long train journey it was!

I’ve walked about 212 miles, but haven’t yet attempted to work out the ascents and all that stuff. It was great fun. The washing’s in the machine, the tent is drying in the garden, the cat has been fed and tomorrow I’ll go and collect wee Piglet. How fast it all went.

    Well done on the 212 miles. Look forward to the full report.

    Welcome Home! I managed 5 days and then Big Nasty Gremlins appeared and I had to rush to Yorkshire….where I still am! I was looking forward to catching up with you but it was not to be…….
    There’s always next year.

      Hello! I wondered where you were: Phil and Alan said they saw you at Tomdoun and I kept hoping to run into you. I hope nothing dreadful has happened–will go and take a look on your blog. I’m so sorry not to have seen you: next year, I hope ♥

    Congratulations Shirl. Even more congratulations are due if you managed to get all of that fish down your gullet!

  4. Gibson says:

    Congratulations Shirl. Look forward to hearing your podcasts and reading your report. That’s a mighty fish supper there!

    Wow Shirley – that’s a fish and a half!
    Great to see you on the Challenge – I see you did about the same mileage as I did, and I suspect you were a lot less tired…
    Have fun with Piglet.

      Thanks, Martin. It was great to see you too. I suspect that I was at least 10 times as tired as you: I went through two packets of Panadol Extra during the Oban to Braemar part *g*

    How did you get on with your TZ7? I’ve got one and think it a good compact – better than my Canon IXUS 980 I’d say, although not as much manual control.

    • peewiglet says:

      I absolutely *loved* the TZ7. What a thrill the extra wide lens was! Nor was the battery life as awful as I’d expected it to be, though I did take two spares and recharge all of them in Braemar.

      I’ve not got to grips with the cunning things it can do off the auto setting yet, but really it was the lens–both the width and the quality of it–that blew me away. I can’t recommend it more highly.

      Oops re: the fish supper, btw *g* You lot have some strange linguistic conventions up there!

  7. Gibson says:

    btw, it would still be a ‘fish supper’ up here, no matter when you ate it!

  8. Louise says:

    Well done Shirley! Really looking forward to the write up, your’s is always entertaining and a darn good read.
    Sure Piglet will be pleased to see you.
    That’s not a fish, it’s a whale!
