Pentland Sunrise

Thank goodness for local hills.

Pentland sunrise:


It's tough being forced to stay local, but when you have hills like the Pentlands nearby, it could be worse.

I met a woman the other day who confessed she had been up the Highlands during the recent travel restrictions, and was planning to go again.

It made me think of the Sabbath on Lewis a couple of decades ago. It was socially unacceptable to do anything other than Bible study, but behind closed doors people would cook, watch TV, do housework, make babies, etc. The key was to not flaunt your Sabbath-beeaking.

Most of us publicly accept the current restrictions, but I wonder how many are privately like that woman in the Pentlands?
