Typical views from the Tak Ma Doon road. Scotland is pretty no matter which way you look.
Songs in my head while riding and smiling: Map of the World, part 2 by Jane Siberry “you mentioned La Pieta, the dotted line, the holy flapping dress…”; Blazing Away by Norma Waterson “we’ll make a bonfire of our troubles…”; Matapedia by Kate & Anna McGarrigle “50 minutes, 50 miles, 30 minutes, 30 miles, 10, 9, 8…”
Arrived in Somerset yesterday. Fairest of the counties. Green, yes, but more so. World-class verdancy! Cows push each other out of the way to welcome us. Truly! Hills have flattened themselves into manageable bumps. We are even enjoying them. A bit. Currently in Bristol, at Arnolfini, with an ale. Feels like coming home.
