Sunday 24 February

Another sunny day after a bitterly cold night (-5C), and only distant clouds on the southern horizon. Went for an amble in the Castle Grounds, just over 4 miles towards the Creed Gate and back towards the road that leads north from the Creed towards the Castle. I struck down towards the Low Road and thus made it back into town. Took me about an hour and a half. Came across frozen puddles (in spite of afternoon temps of about +5C) and the burned areas of last June's wildfires. Took paths that I had not trodden before, so an interesting amble. By the way, the last two images confirm that nothing moves here on a Sunday.

Another tragedy has struck here, in that a man from Parkend (between Sandwick and the airport) was found dead in that area after being missing for about two days.
