It’s probably obvious from the two blogs in two days that Jen is still away…today I made the most of the snow and headed up to the head of Glen Strathfarrar for a short Ski Tour with Rick and the Labrador extraordinaire.
The aim of the day was Beinn a Bha’ach Ard (easy for you to say), a Corbett at the eastern end of Glen Strathfarrar: One of my books says it is used by locals as a beallweather (whatever that is!). It looks like a great hill and will definitely be coming back to complete the tour as on this occasion we called it a day before we got to the top – the snow just wasn’t quite enough.
Dylan has been on his best behaviour the last few hill trips…I think he was lulling us into a false sense of security and chose this trip to change back to his old ways. On different occasions he managed to get Ricks glove, one of my tops, then one of my gloves…we won them all back with cheese sandwich bribery. Anyway, he topped it all after setting off back down - Rick caught a ski and went over, Dylan saw his chance and pounced….licking and climbing all over Rick, without a doubt the funniest thing I have seen all week, unfortunately it ended badly…..there was human/canine open mouth contact. Not good.
