Saturday was for adventure

When we woke up on Saturday morning to a purring cat, little did I think that by lunch time I would be looking at this view......

Zeb in the sunshine at the top of the Shap Pass on the way to Southern Scotland. We stopped for a brew, a leg stretch and a piddle stop for Moss. Nursing almost unbearably too hot to hold mugs of tea, we noisily slurped as we let our eyes rest on the distant horizons. Then once drunk and Moss had played happily in the moorland grass, we all climbed back into the cab and headed for our first stop for the night. Drumburn Viewpoint. 

Himself reversed the van up into our parking spot and we threw the back doors open - to this!

A sea that went on forever, meeting the sky then vanishing to a point my eye could not reach. I filled my head and heart with heartbreakingly beautiful shades of blue and gold, pinks and silvers. I could just about taste the tang of the salt on the air.

The tide was on the turn and quietly filled the bay with colours of quick silver and metallic blues just as the sun was going down behind us, deepening the shades with blacks and magentas. It was a feast for the senses. 

We sat in silence as we ate, taking in the spectacle, listening to the coastal birds, watching the unfolding scene before us. If we spoke it was almost in hushed tones. We stayed mesmerised until it was too dark and even then we could not close the door, choosing to go to bed with it open for as long as we could stay awake.



In the morning we were awoken by a golden sunrise and as we did not want to miss one second of the beauty, we quickly put the kettle on and still wrapped in the duvet we gazed at the increasingly golden bands of sky and deep blue cloud.
Eventually hunger drove us to make breakfast and refill our mugs and continue to absorb the morning light.

We had to drag ourselves away from our snug viewing spot - there was a walk on Himself's to-list waiting for us and both he and Moss were getting fidgety. Time to fill the flask and pack a picnic for the day ......

to be continued ......
