Lunch at Callendar Park — Fan Of… #150

Hi all 😁 Feel free to join in this weekly challenge whenever you find yourself thinking, “I’m a fan of…” (see below for how-to).

This weeks Fan Of… is a wee picnic lunch at Callendar Park. This is also my post for Xingfumama’s Pull Up a Seat & John’s Cellpic Sunday challenges

Although we passed trhough Callendar Park at one point last year, it’s nearly 2 years since we specifically went there. The weather was good, although cold in the morning πŸ₯Ά, so we made up a wee picnic and headed to Falkirk on our bikes.

As ususal we headed straight for the canal & passed this herd of sheep, still sleepy & getting ready for the day (the sheep, not us πŸ˜‚).

Coffee at the Kelpies — Fan Of… #145

Hi all 😁 Feel free to join in this weekly challenge whenever you find yourself thinking, “I’m a fan of…” (see below for how-to).

First off, thank you so much for all the birtdays wishes from you guys 😊😊😊

This week’s Fan Of.. is Coffee at the Kelpies. With some time off over my birthday, my wife & I were able to get out on our first longish ride of the year (50km). Although we’ve been out on our bikes with the trailer constantly over the winter, to go shopping & run errands, this was our first chance to really get out.

Overlooking the Marina on a rainy day — Pull Up a Seat #47 and PPAC #23

Hi all πŸ˜ƒ My entry for Xingfumamas Pull Up a Seat Challenge. There’s also a sculpture by the seat, so this is also my entry for PPAC, hosted this week by Marsha. There is no explanation for the sculpture; to me though it looks like the ruins of a church, particularly with the stained glass inserts πŸ˜ƒ
