Lock Eck

After a morning of chatting and watching the Olympics, we went out for the afternoon, sightseeing and geocaching.  I have been geocaching just over 8 years,  I started when I wanted to get some exercise, and the idea of walking or running with no object in mind did not appeal.  So when I heard about geocaching I thought that was perfect for me.

We started at Lock Eck.  The last time I visited (in 2014) we came here, we could not look for the geocache because there was a wedding happening.  They invited us to join them.    
      
       

Wonderful views across the Loch, it was so peaceful and thank goodness no midges. 

To find the cache here involved going down to the beach, I did not fancy that as the 'steps' were quite uneven and high and I was worried about getting back up. 

And Yam picking wild blueberries.  I have a film of her doing some gymnastics on a fallen tree truck, but not sure she would want me to put it on here (hehe). More photos on Yam's blog

    It was such a lovely day!!! Now - that video would probably be more fittingly shown here than on my own blog - so go ahead, just to keep the record straight &*> (I still haven't worked out how to reorientate my copy.) The blaeberries have now been used up - make a compote with last of cherries and a few grapes to have with yoghurt. YUM! YAM xx

    1. I have Googled blaeberry and bilberry and it says they are the same, but I am sure when Yam sees this she will know for sure. The scenery and views are certainly spectacular in that part of the country. Yam is so lucky to live there.

      Yes, blaeberries are the same as bilberries - but NOT blueberries. The former are European (Vacc. Myrtillus) and the latter are of the Americas (Vacc. Cyanococcus). It is the latter which has become the common supermarket fruit. Yxx
