Forgiveness

Grey heron at Wigtown
Please forgive me. All I have for you today is more pictures from south western Scotland. The weather remains beautiful and soon we will  be driving along The Rhins of  Galloway down to the Mull of Galloway so I haven't got time to be sitting here a-bloggin'. These pictures were taken yesterday - July 3rd... 
A bookshop in Wigtown, Can you see the orange circle?
It's the "Bosh!" cookbook!
St Ninian's Cave on the southern tip of The Machars.
Here St Ninian would come to meditate - according to legend.
St Ninian's Chapel at The Isle of Whithorn.
Pilgrims often arrived in boats and would tarry here a while
before continuing their journeys to the shrine at Whithorn

    1. You shop in Waitrose Briony? Have you won the lottery or something?

  2. Another set of beautiful pictures, thank you! When I clicked on the book shop picture to enlarge it, I could clearly read "BOSH!" on the book with the orange circle. Great stuff!

  3. Went to Waterstone the other day; pulled Bosh off the shelve. Impressed; not least as they don't ram home the vegan part; playing it cool. Which, immediately, makes it accessible to the meat eater too. Had to smile, having googled your son, how - in one interview - he tells that, initially, his parents weren't that impressed with his venture.

    Herons? I love herons. A hero in one of my favourite books of my childhood. I re-read it every two years or so. It's like a homecoming.

    1. Last evening I watched a heron stalking in the tidal mud flats but fifty yards from our door. There were two or three failed attacks with his spear-like beak but two or three attempts were successful and little silver fish wriggled in his grip. I didn't feel sorry for them as he gulped them down.

    1. They are such skittish birds - always wary but for two minutes he was unaware of my presence.

    1. Thank you Lee. I was going to call you Mother Superior but I didn't think you would like that.

  6. Doesn't the outline of the cave resemble a devil or pan looking to the right

    Must have been a bit of a thrill to see the Bosh! cookbook in the store window!

    1. I have seen it in a couple of big supermarkets but to see it in Wigtown - miles from anywhere was a real delight.

  10. I suppose if you are going to meditate then it's better to do it out of the wind and the rain.

  11. My mother-in-law lived on a canal in Florida in her later years and had put a birdbath out by it. She would sit in the house and watch as a Great Blue Heron would clamber up out of the canal, stand over the birdbath and lean DOWN to take a drink!

    I watched a couple of the BOSH! videos and looked all over but still don't know what BOSH means. Can you explain?

    1. Thanks for the blue heron story Mr C.

      In England you can do things simply and quickly. We might say "Bish, bash, bosh! There it is done my friend!" The word "Bosh!" is taken from that saying. Bosh is the last word so in the end the food is there on your plate.

  12. The boys' seaside pie is excellent! We cooked at the seaside too!
