OLD NEWS

Heather just came to visit me, like, three months ago! I thought I should start putting up some of the pictures that resulted from that. If you're attentive, you will probably understand the progression of events. This will be the first of well.. quite a few graphics-heavy posts submitted at highly irregular intervals.

SO.

Here is a picture of us waiting for the bus the day after Heather got here! We like to travel, apparently.
A few days later, we took yet another bus to the small, picturesque, touristy town of Luss on the banks of Loch Lomond (of deserved bonnie, bonnie repute). Here we saw several animals and a very nice river, which Heather photographed.

It's not so much a CASTLE...

I suppose the previous post has been up long enough for now... There will be many more pictures of Heather and me to come, I can promise! I think I'm going to try to post some from our trip around the UK, actually, so it will be a little bit of a step back in time. Hopefully nothing too jarring for those of us with weaker constitutions...

I had the opportunity to climb to the top of the University tower today, with a group of International students (Here is a picture of the tower, for anyone who doesn't remember). It was amazingly sunny, and the haze that usually covers the city like a poorly-applied coat of primer had apparently been cleared away for the occasion. Of course, I brought my camera! And of course, I didn't get any pictures of the town that I'd feel great about posting on my blog! If you want to see some of them, and get an idea of the location of campus in relation to my house, feel free to look here and here and here.

I did take a few pictures I think I can show you, however. Well. Look.
