Day 78 – Invermoriston to Drumnadrochit – 15 miles

I have observed before that the British are obsessed by the weather. I’ve been here for quite some time, and I may be starting to develop the same obsession. So starting today I’m going cold turkey on the weather. From now on, weather doesn’t exist, and I’m not going to report on it. Not even if it snows. Not even if locals start hanging hammocks from palm trees. Nope, I’m going to ignore the weather and just report on the day’s activities. I think that will make the postings much more interesting.

Trail made of dirt
Today’s walk was on a trail. It was made of dirt. It also had rocks and roots. When the trail ended, it came out on a road. The road was blacktop.

Water called Loch Ness
Sometimes I could see water. It is called Loch Ness. It has a monster, but nobody ever sees it. Or if they do see it, they get eaten by it, so they can’t tell anybody. I didn’t get eaten, so I must not have seen the monster.

People riding horses
I saw some people riding horses, though.

Carol and Stewart
And I met a nice couple who were walking on the trail when it was still dirt.

I’m at my B&B now. I am going to have dinner soon.

See how much more interesting the daily posting can be when the weather is ignored?

Answers to Monday’s puzzle:

The correct answer is 14 – but I named two of them. Here are the others, though I’ll admit that hiding number 7 within the title of number 6 was a bit sneaky.

1. It’s Raining
2. Stormy Weather
3. Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head
4. Blame it on the Rain
5. Singing in the Rain
6. Listen to the Rhythm of the Falling Rain
7. Falling Rain
8. I Made it Through the Rain
9. Rainy Days and Mondays Always Get Me Down
10. Baby I Know the Rain Must Fall
11. Rain, Rain Go Away
12. It Ain’t Gonna Rain No More

  1. Ah….good to be reminded of my grammar school primer. See Ken walk. Walk, Ken, walk. See Ken spot horses. Spot, Ken, spot. See Ken run into Carol and Stewart. Run, Ken run……

  2. Woa.....someone needs another shot of espresso! It's ok Ken, we don't need the weather report, you are doing just fine! Now, take a deep breath, get some Scotch and go take a nap!
    I know, you just want to wring my neck....I get that a lot! Hang in there!

  3. Hi...great to see the progress you're making. I can understand why the "W" word has been banned. Thanks for the quiz on Monday, I think it's 16 not 14 because Glenn Miller's "In the Mood" and the Beatles "Yesterday" were there somewhere. Good walking for the final stretch.
