A brief peep of the Cairngorms

(Sorry everyone, this was supposed to go up on Sunday, but I was watching Wimbledon. Well done Andy Murray!)

Hello folks!
On Monday, it was my 2nd birthday!

I got a squeaky "pawbon" biscuit toy and a squeaky "poochy cream" toy,
a new dog ball and two cards!
But all I was really interested in playing with was my old ball! Woof!
The weather's been mostly really nice here, so on Saturday, Eve and Grace and their parent people came and dognapped me again.

They shoved me into the dreaded box, and off we went...
Apart from when I was sick and when I piddled, it was quite a peaceful journey. I was a very good girl and lay down the whole way!

Here we are in Glen Esk, and the sun is shining!
This is the Glen Esk retreat, a nice place with a shop and cafe.
And there's an old folk museum. Woof!
Whilst THEY sat and had scones and stuff...
I took my ball for a wee walk. Woof!
There was a man playing guitar, a lady playing the fiddle and two little
girlies dancing.
The museum was interesting...
Everything in it was old farmers stuff that had been found in the Glen!
Woof woof! We could draw on the walls too!
Look what Eve I drew!
It was lovely and sunny! Woof!
In the car we jumped, and headed off further into Glen Esk...

On the way, we passed a rock with the Cairngorms logo-ish thing on it. I was like "Woof woof, we are in the cairngorms!"
I never ever thought I would make it this far in the car!

We walked along a path by the river...
We passed Invermark Castle as well...
And there were sheep, which I wasn't allowed to herd!
I mean, I'm a sheepdog aren't I?!
Then we got to Loch Lee.
Woof, it's so nice here!
We had to go home though, because it would take us an hour to get back
and we needed our tea.
On the way back, horsies came to speak to us, but I
did not speak to them. Woof!
I fairly enjoyed my short visit into a wee bit of the Cairngorms.
Maybe, I can come back one day!
Thanks for visiting today!

Eve's on holiday now, so hopefully you might see more of my face this month!
Be prepared.

Bye for now,
Pippa :) wuf wuf
