The ups and downs of summer

I have an extra way of telling summer has arrived, every time I go out I get a collection of insect bites which come up in itchy ugly lumps. I always dread a puncture at this time as it means the blighters will have a good feed and I will be trying not to scratch for hours afterwards.

This morning Anne and I went along the beach and over Goldenberry (whacked back a few more ferns on route) about 3.5 hrs walking.

PM went down Hunterston on the MTB over Goldenberry again then up onto the moor. There were three paragliders up there hanging on the thermals, they must get some view, but probably too busy searching the updraft to see it.
I carried the bike up into the quarry and watched them circling for a few minutes, then blasted down hill to the main road. Its lovely and dry up there at the moment only a couple of boggy bits by the burns.

Now there's an idea, stick a hang glider onto the mountain bike
