I’ve been away this past week to spend several days with my parents and family. It was just what I needed after many weeks of working through a tiring time. OH couldn’t take any time off, he’s quite busy.
I took some pics when I could of some pretty autumn colour. ๐Ÿ‚
I do love the season, its quite striking. Apologies as pics not very clear, taken with my phone..
It was so lovely to spend time with my parents and the family, catching up. The weather was fair, some blue skies, although, it could be cloudy in a short space of time. It only rained as I drove homewards, fortunately.
Cosy evening with OH and little Eve our cat, not quite log burner time yet..but definitely soon. ๐Ÿงฃ๐Ÿงค๐Ÿ”ฅ

It's such a stunning part of the world. Glad your journey there and back was a good one and you enjoyed your much-needed break.

excellent photos, some modern phone cameras are brilliant.

I can almost smell the season in your photos Kate. It is lovely spending time with family. That reminds me I will have to get up to Sunderland soon to see my brothers.

Thank you, Ange. I often don't appreciate it until I visit each time. It's very colourful at this time of year.
The journey there and back was fortunately uneventful! Not like your recent holiday, sadly. The journey sounded really stressful..

Aw, many thanks, Eileen! You're right, sometimes modern phones can take some nice pics.
I had a friend years ago, I trained with her, she could "smell" Christmas approaching!
Hopefully you'll get the chance to go up and visit your brothers on the North East Coast soon ๐Ÿคž

That's very kind, Sandra, thank you! The colours were pretty eye catching!
I thoroughly enjoyed my little break, just lovely to relax and meet up with family and friends. Xx

Nice to see photos of Ayrshire Kate, they are lovely.
My late partner Beryl, her grandfather was from Ayrshire (grandmother from Aberdeen)

Unfortunately we never got to visit either of the areas :(

Amazing colours Kate and hope you got home after a lovely week with your family feeling refreshed and ready to go!

30 Oct, 2023

 

Enjoyed your photos Kate, lovely views & colour. Glad you had a few days off with family.

My sister lives up there at Barrhill inland from Girvan. Do you know it?

Wonderful Kate. Especially the last pic!

Glad you enjoyed your visit with your family Kate and thank you for sharing some beautiful and colourful pictures of the place I will never be able to see otherwise..

Thank you. Hywel. I'm pleased you liked the Ayrshire pics. So, Beryl had some Scottish genes then, sometimes, time flies so quick, we don't get the chance to visit places we'd like to. (Especially if it's family connections)
I've never been to Aberdeen. Been many places up north, but, not had the chance, yet...

Thanks Rose, pleased you like all the autumn foliage. Home safe and sound. Resting today and back to work tomorrow. It's pouring with rain, so no chance of pottering outside : -(

Thank you, Josee! It was quite pretty around my parents part of the county.
Lovely to spend time with the family too.
I just wish we'd had time to drive up to the mountains..the colour there is just spectacular!
Another time hopefully.

Hi Sue, I don't know Barrhill, but I do know Girvan. I looked on the map, not too far from the coast.
I recall you mentioning your sister lived in Ayrshire.

Thank you, Karen, the last pic is Loudoun Hill, where the Spirit of Scotland sculpture sits.

Aw, thank you, Klahanie. I'm pleased you liked the photos. I enjoy your autumnal/Fall colour too, your pics are beautiful.

31 Oct, 2023

 

Yes Kate, Beryl's father had brothers and sisters born in Dunoon Argyllshire, but he was born after the family moved to Swansea. I wish she had done one of those DNA tests.

Beautiful autumn pics Kate, gorgeous vivid trees, they're lovely.
I like the sound of the Spirit of Scotland, yes the last pic is stunning. Hope you recharged your batteries..

31 Oct, 2023

 

Sounds impelling, Hywel! Family history and trees are fascinating!
American navy were stationed there from the early 60s.

31 Oct, 2023

 

Thank you, Janey, that's kind of you. Yes, it's a very scenic area. Colour is really something at this time of year.
Batteries are recharged and ready to go!
