A Walk In The Sun

I had to take the car for it's yearly MOT check yesterday and I enjoyed a lovely walk home from town.  It was  a gorgeous day - in fact we have had great weather since last Friday. It is due to break on Thursday when it is forecast to rain, so we need to enjoy it while we can!!!!

I walked home via the golf course - it is quite a nice walk and thought I'd post some pictures to let you see.

There is a wee burn that runs through the golf course with lots of bridges across.


 A couple of golfers and the Isle of Arran in the background.

 Gorse bushes - looks lovely against the blue sky.


A gorse flower.

Isn't it great to see the sun and a blue sky - makes everybody seem that much more cheerier.

I hope it is nice wherever you are.

Gorgeous photos, Ellie! That does look like a wonderful walk.
We had temps in the 70's for the past few weeks, but today, it's in the 50's and breezy. But the sun is shining!
Thanks for sharing your pictures; enjoy your day!

A great walk from town Ellie! Your golf courses are so much more natural than our totally groomed astro turf looking ones.

Lovely photos! The blue sky looks gorgeous, we have dreary weather here in San Francisco so this post is just what I needed to see.
The first one is my favorite!

Oh don't say - my car is in the garage for it's MOT yesterday too - it hasn't passed :( Hoping to get it back, fixed, before I have to leave for work.

No sign of the weather breaking here yet.
