Swimming In Loch Ard

Couple of days in the past week I have gone down to Loch Ard and have gone for a swim. Brilliant that it has been warm enough to want to do that and actually need to do that.

Creating Your Office

One of the days that I was down in Clachan I went for a long walk along Westport beach, absolutely love being on the beach next to the sea. Sometimes there really is nothing better and is exactly what is needed to think and not think. While there I sent a few picture messages to people joking about a tough day at the office which made me think I could make this my office.
