|Wind turbines as far as the eye could see.|
|A blade from a turbine.|
Well on Saturday Karen and I went to a local wind farm. You can see it when driving to Glasgow and I was always fascinated by it. In fact you can see the wind turbines from our house - they are in the distance though. Anyway I was told by my sister that you could visit there, have a walk around and there was a coffee shop there as well. Well that swung it for me - the thought of a coffee and cake yum.
I had thought the turbines were big but I was surprised by how big, they seemed to stretch high in the sky - in fact you know that way when you look up at something very tall and you get that dizzy feeling well that happened to me looking up at these things. And there were so many of them, wind turbines as far as the eye could see.
We walked about 3 miles - so we got a good bit of exercise in. There was also an 8 mile walk - we decided not to do that - and there were lots of cyclists and runners there. Blimey they were keen. After our walk we went for - yeah you guessed it coffee and cake. I had a cappuccino and a coffee and walnut cake (to die for) and Karen had an empire biscuit and a coke.
So that was our adventures on Saturday. Next time I will tell you about my escapades with the leaking bathroom and water running down our kitchen walls. Fun!! Not much.
