|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

I bought a vegan magazine in waitrose the other day and who were on the front cover? Bosh of course. Well done those boys.ReplyDelete
You shop in Waitrose Briony? Have you won the lottery or something?Delete
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!ReplyDelete
Thanks for your friendship and encouragement through the years Meike.Delete
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.ReplyDelete
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.
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.Delete
The photo of the heron is stunning.ReplyDelete
They are such skittish birds - always wary but for two minutes he was unaware of my presence.Delete
Spectacular photography...so all is forgiven!!ReplyDelete
Thank you Lee. I was going to call you Mother Superior but I didn't think you would like that.Delete
Doesn't the outline of the cave resemble a devil or pan looking to the rightReplyDelete
It really does, John! Good eye.Delete
It does indeed!Delete
Well spotted John! Perhaps it is St Ninian!Delete
Everything is so clear and beautiful there. Enjoy it!ReplyDelete
Greetings Maria x
It has been a super holiday with supper weather Maria.Delete
Wonderful photos! How fun to see your son's book in the store's window.ReplyDelete
In such a remote little town...Delete
For shame, you, for "only" giving us gorgeous pictures :)ReplyDelete
Must have been a bit of a thrill to see the Bosh! cookbook in the store window!
I have seen it in a couple of big supermarkets but to see it in Wigtown - miles from anywhere was a real delight.Delete
I suppose if you are going to meditate then it's better to do it out of the wind and the rain.ReplyDelete
The same is true if you are going to urinate!Delete
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!ReplyDelete
I watched a couple of the BOSH! videos and looked all over but still don't know what BOSH means. Can you explain?
Thanks for the blue heron story Mr C.Delete
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.
The boys' seaside pie is excellent! We cooked at the seaside too!ReplyDelete
I will ask them to put that quote on the cover MaC!Delete
