A lovely visit.....

We spent two days this week visiting our dear friends Linda & Ron who live about 2.5 hours away in beautiful Perthshire.  Great company, great food, great drinks!  On the way home I got a few photos at Killiecrankie.

On a visit to the used bookshop at the Pitlochry train station:

I've applied for and received my bus pass which entitles me to ride free on all buses in Scotland. Anyone 60 and over is entitled to one.  Due to our location I am also entitled to a ferry pass which I can use on our local ferries, one of which is free and the other will charge 60 pence with the pass.  

On Friday we are heading to the airport hotel and will catch our flight to Morocco on Saturday morning.  This is our first trip there so it should prove interesting.

London trip!

Yesterday we discovered that a concert Danny wants to see and a monk I want to see are in London at the same time.   Can't be a coincidence, so we've booked a trip! Hotel, tickets, train are all booked.

I'm very happy to be taking the train instead of flying, especially in first class!

On the 29th of March Thich Nhat Hahn will be speaking at Southbank Centre.  The talk is titled True Peace and Happiness in the Here and Now.

The 31st of March will feature TNH leading a Sitting Meditation in Trafalgar Square.  Better remember a cushion to sit on!

At Southbank Centre on the 1st of April we'll attend St Matthew Passion by the Bach Choir.
