Have you ever been to Galloway? Its quite undiscovered and one of our holiday staples since we have been together. David's uncle runs a small business in Wigtown, Scotland's book town. Family is what took us down there originally and we have watched the book festival grow and flourish, we have made friends and grown to love the area very much- one day we will have some more roots there we hope. But shhhhhh that's a pipe dream for now.
So much to do, if the printed word isn't your thing then Kirkcudbright is the artists town. A haven for artists in one of the key points in Scottish art history and one of my favourites, Jessie M. King lived and worked there with her family. Follow the link, have a read its fascinating. Its a beautiful town, the kiddos loved the wee closes leading to backland property, hide and seek in the rain- glorious Scottish weather and for once I cannot blame the west coast.
A few miles of forest and then a breathtaking pebbly beach revealed itself. The baby spent most of the walk in my arms or on my shoulders but it gave us a glimpse of all the fun we will have together when the kids are up a bit.
So Monday is over and it wasn't so bad, have a lovely week everyone who is reading.
