Oban winter festivities and litter pick

Damon's starring in the cave rescue on the landward programme is on iplayer for another 5 days. The link is

We've had fabulous weather for the past week. Yesterday morning I had a kayak with my friend, launching from Kelly's pier at very high water.

I also had a walk last week, taking the train from Tyndrum to the remote Corour station on Rannoch moor. I then walked 25 km over 2 Munros to end at Tulloch station and took the train back from there. I even put some suncream on before I left!

Next weekend is a winter weekend in Oban, with Festivities. The usual iceskating and reindeer, switching on the lights and other activities such as cooking for kids, tea and walks around Dunollie House. There will also be an unexpected free fireworks display. Oban's fireworks on the 5th of Nov went wrong and it was all over in 1 minute. So an extra performance is put on.

Our first mince pies made by the girls, to get us into the winter festivities. This was after the major litter pick we did in the village with the primary school. The village is all spick and span again.
