We need a holiday to get over the holiday..

We got back from our whistle stop tour of Scotland early Monday evening... and hit the ground running. Finn was straight back into his fun packed activities Tuesday morning full of beans as usual. On the other hand both me and Paul were starting to feel the after effects of our busy holiday. I've nearly conquered the holiday washing mountain and packed everything away again so this week should be more relaxing.

We managed to see almost all of our friends and family between staying in Edinburgh, Loch Lomond & Glasgow over the 10 days we were away and squeezed in a day trip to Stirling to meet some of my family driving down from Aberdeen.

During our stay in Loch Lomond we took F to the SeaLife Aquarium. Finn was more interested in the various types of lighting inside than all the fish, sharks & seahorses swimming around in the huge tanks! The underwater tunnel with sharks swimming overhead was awesome & I took a lot of pictures. But very quickly I realised that I need a new digital camera. My current one has quite a long lag between pressing the button and taking the picture so I have lots of motion blurred fish. Very pretty but not practical to capture detailed inspirational photographs! So now I'm shopping for a new Nikon digital camera :)


  1. if you find a camera you like... let me know, and I'll see if we've got anyone in the states at the time.

  2. I've been lusting after the Nikon D80... but talking myself into spend the money is not so easy!

  3. Can't wait to see what camera you get. Mine is old, and it's also getting slower as the days go by. It''s a Nikon coolpix and I've had it for about 3 yrs. now. I'm a die-hard fan of nikon! :-)

    Glad your trip went well, now it's back to the ol' grind. :-)
