28th and 29th of October 2014.
Regular blog readers will know my eldest daughter and my two eldest grandchildren.
They're staying wiith me for a few days during school half term. This post covers Tuesday and Wednesday. It'll be short on information as I'll mostly let the pictures tell their own story.
After they'd settled in, myself Michele, Callum and Erin went along to Kirroughtree to do some stargazing.
We didn't have a camera that would take starry pictures, but we had a great time looking through the binoculars.
Their first look at the Wheel Bridge.
"Now, how have our smart phone pictures come out"
Pictures by the Riverside.
Wednesday we took a trip up north to Culzean Castle.
After parking up at the visitor's centre we took a look down by the caves before doing the castle tour.
This picture was pure luck.
The curlew doesn't come out as 'arty' as the heron did !
The armoury is the first room
Susanna, Countess of Eglinton
There was a lego man spotting competion
I'd seen this on a previous visit, but one of the room guides reminded me of how the foot strangely keeps pointing towards you. In these two pictures of mine though, it looks like she herself has turned to follow us.
A short rest in the orangery

From Culzean we took a run up to Ayr for some sightseeing..............
Dinner at the 'Clachan' at St Johns town of Dalry ended an enjoyable day.
