I went to Dalkeith park this morning and had a walk round the woods and walks trying to take some photographs however I was surprised that the paths and woods were extremely wet and muddy. I have to say I found it quite challenging and extremely slippery. Since the forecast for tomorrow and possibly Sunday is for more rain and would recommend that we cancel Sunday’s outing and reschedule when the ground has dried out a bit more (maybe I’m not as fit as I thought). I also found as it is still the school holidays the Restoration Café was full of very wet, muddy distressed children and I couldn’t get in for a cuppa!
I did pick up some maps of the estate for anyone interested in going at a later date and will hand them out on Thursday. I’ll also phone as many people as possible on the list and let them know.
