Why they call it a 'break'
After what has felt like a long season with guests, we've had a bit of a break from the stalking. Here's what we did on our break...
On Monday, two of us shovelled about 40 tonnes of gravel into potholes in our main track.
On Tuesday, I managed to get to my traps. I pushed on with them as I don't see myself having too much time for them over the next wee while (ie the whole hind season.) I finished with them when the light got so poor that my digits were in danger.
On Wednesday I cut replacement poles for our larder porch. Then cut firewood for the rest of the day.
On Thursday, said firewood got chopped.
On Friday and Saturday we were driving grouse. Saturday was cold and blustery but Friday was a hell of a day of gales and 'power showers'.
So, if there are any guests out there reading this; PLEASE COME BACK!!
And in case you were in any doubt, I've included a pic or two which go to tell you that winter is just around the corner.
