Sometimes when the sun is shining it's a good idea to grab the moment and just head off somewhere new. That's exactly what I did with my third daughter last Thursday.
It was raining when we left but as you can see from this shot of Findochty, the weather improved the further east we went. It was nice enough to sit on a bench for a while.
We went as far as Buckie where aforementioned daughter befriended a very fat muscovy duck. The afternoon was rounded off with a nice coffee and scone at Christie's garden centre at Fochabers.
You can see from the above that the duck was certainly not starving and probably getting fed from all the houses nearby plus passing visitors. He certainly was very humanised. It was a day of birds, as there was a lovely scarlet parakeet called Charley at the garden centre. He spoke quite well, but when daughter went to speak to him a little later, he turned his rear end round and shat all over her new boots. Excellent aim through the bars of his cage. We laughed about his cheek all the way home . Naughty Charley!!
