Bonnie Banks of Loch Lomond

Loch Lomond - in the sun!
Our final day was spent on the bonnie bonnie banks of Loch Lomond. We didn’t stay just anywhere, in any village. No, we were at the hikers delight, wishing we had planned at least 2 nights instead of only one. There were far more trails available than we could ever take advantage of in a single afternoon. (it wasn’t a quick place to get to either.)
We walked along various trails, around the lake, heading part way up the mountain, snapping pictures, hiding under the trees in the rain storms, and just relaxing. We had traditional NW weather…if you don’t like it just way a few minutes, it’ll change. Raining one minute, beautiful sunshine the next.
Our little bird...
We had hoped to climb the mountain, Ben Lomond, but we arrived in the early afternoon and between the rain and the concern about darkness catching us, we stayed on the lower slopes. Still had a great chance to get some pictures and visit with a number of people. You’ll see the variety of skies – all taken on the same afternoon. Good thing we did because the next morning all it did was rain buckets!

Had to include this little bird – he was just fearless, hopping along in front of us, coming up right to Jeff’s leg, posing for us to take LOTS of pictures of him.
