The drive to the Lake is about 4 hours or so, but it's a beautiful trip once you get out of the city and into the countryside. Leafy green forest, lakes, fields, farms, and every now and again a small town. You know you're getting close though, when you pass this beautiful field of horses. It's so picturesquely pastoral, like they just jumped out of a post card, Mary Poppin's style. We had a very relaxing time. We did go to the Loch with Gramma and my Mum, a place I have vague memories of from when I was about 4. I remember they being ginormous, which I guess is because I was a smaller person then ;). The sky was a perfect blue with cotton-ball fluffy clouds, which reflected so magnificently into the still waters.

I think we discovered a new mutant squirrel, which looks just like it was dipped in bleach. Hard to believe it's real, but seriously, this wee half-blonde squirrel looks like it had a bad dye job!
