Today I met a fascinating woman. She’s spent years in Hollywood and traveled around the world. She’s worked in publishing and has several non-fiction hardbacks to her credit. Have you ever met someone and instantly taken a shine to them? Well that’s how I felt with her. I felt as if we’d been friends for years. I could’ve listened to her talk for hours and hours. I’m genuinely mad about her. I only wish we would’ve met sooner.
After leaving her, we went to have lunch at the Whistlefield Inn. It’s a place we’ve been going to for years that’s a few miles away from where we’re staying. Apparently, they recently changed chefs. I’m not sure who they had before, but the new chef is FABULOUS! We had smoked haddock with black pudding, bacon, and mash. It was covered in a hollandaise sauce. Sounds odd. Tastes yummy! Trust me. Afterwards, we stopped by my favorite lake. Yes, there are a lot of lakes in Scotland. And I mean A LOT! I’ve seen many that I’ve thought were very pretty, but there is something about Loch Eck that’s special. If you don’t believe me, see for yourself.
