It’s a grey rainy day here in Scotland and mood was a bit on the low. This is the time of year where we are out almost each weekend: wild camping, kayaking, hiking, mountain biking. And I was not looking forward to another weekend without adventures. We got onto the mountain bikes anyway and took a route that used to be blocked off but now has an access path. I never knew we had proper wetlands just on the outskirts of town, with a field of cotton grass, a birch wood covered in blueberry shrubs! I will go back and share some proper photos with you. It was as if we accidentally stumbled into another dimension. From our urban surroundings into a wild, wild wood. Magical! So how many micro-adventures do you have on your door step? Areas you don’t know about or–like the alpha boy–haven’t been there in 40 years? Amazed how huge that tree you remember from childhood has become. Little hidden gems of magic.
