Back at Strathyre, the harebell's are out floating about in the wind on the loch edge. Apparantly they get their name from the story of faeries wearing the flower heads as hats, who would ring them to warn the hares of any dangers.

Happy 40th Birthday Will

After a relaxing session of yoga (Will being embarrassingly the only bloke, but is doing miracles for his back), we returned to the campsite for a few surprises. Lesley and co had decorated the reception with balloons and embarrasing photo's that Will's mum had sent up. Then, as happy birthday was being sung, from behind the counter, up popped our friends Jonathan (who we met doing 'Land's End to John O'Groats) and his brother Nathaniel.

Later, after lunch in the hotel the lads went cliff jumping, then a 'Total Wipeout' style assault course on Loch Ard.

The day was finished with an amazing meal at The Byre Inn, Brig O'Turk. They even made the most delicious chocolate birthday cake, freshly made about half hour before, mmm.

Here's one of Will, with hair just before it started falling out on his 18th, he, he!

Happy 39th and 364th day Will

Will's 40th birthday has come as a bit of a shock to him, so to take his mind off it I had planned a few surprises. The first being 4x4 driving at (good) Crieff, from his mom and dad the day before to celebrate the last day of his 3o's. I can't believe he didn't flip the car, I was holding on so tight I scraped the skin off my knuckle trying to hold on at what felt like a 45degree angle. Will loved it of course.
Here's our friends Lesley and Graham-who had a go too, and 'Frank-opeadia' (and his tach) :-!)
