Offski for a few days

Going up north to do a few days volunteeering with the National Trust for Scotland. Working in the grounds of a castle in Aberdeenshire. A gardening friend from Skye is meeting me up there, and a local friend is travelling with me. It should be fun as there's a plant sale on Sunday.

Packing my midge cream, sleeping bag, boots and socks, waterproofs and charging camera batteries etc. Never easy to travel light in Scotland when one weekend can present every possible weather combination. But it will still be light until around 11pm, so provided we're not too knackered after a day's gardening we may get some nice walks in.

Hope you all have a good few days - I'll catch up with you all next week.

Wear layers and take twice the midge cream you thought you'd need!

Sounds like a worthy endeavour indeed - have fun, hun! I hope the sun does the decent thing and shines on your enterprise.

Hope that you have a good trip... and as always, yes the camera is one of the most important things!

I always grab my laptop, camera and purse every time the fire alarm goes off and I have to dash from home.

Which is often.
