We bloggers can sometimes establish a relationship with one another akin to "pen pals" of earlier times. We share, in the context of our postings here, a mutual enjoyment of the outdoors and self-propelled activities such as sea kayaking and hill walking. We had looked forward to the possibility of meeting up with a fellow blogger for a long time. Ian writes an superb blog, Mountain and Sea Scotland, and we enjoy every posting. Yesterday we all met up, and it was simply a great day.
As the Scottish meteorologists had forecast, the conditions in Cairngorms National Park were, indeed, overcast with intermittent rain, and the tops of the mountains were frequently hidden in the soft mist. None of that, however, detracted at all from a most enjoyable day with Ian and Linda.

The "weather" that mattered, however, was warm and sunny. :)
Cheers to all,
Duncan and Joan.
