An Actual Vacation!
Ben Cruachan, Dalmally Scotland " Mountain"
It was good to take a 3 week break to spend time with all the Watson-Joneses in the UK. We also took time to travel around the country.
We visited ”Mountain”, Ben Cruachan, in Taynuilt and Dalmally Scotland. In Dalmally I met a Red Squirrel I named “Robbie.” He's the star in the video below!
That’s all for now. Hope to see you soon at The Lilypad!
All the Best to You,
