Did you have a fun Easter – I did! The weather has been amazing this past week so I took the opportunity to explore a bit. I’m so glad I moved to Helensburgh – you can walk in any direction and find something interesting, and the streets are so quiet. The blossom is out everywhere so I had a wander around some of the streets near me.
I also had a look at Hermitage Park, which is a lot bigger than I thought – I definitely need to go back sometime. I made friends with this fluffy cat too. He looks quite grumpy there but he was really friendly.
On Sunday, I saw there was a kids Easter egg hunt up at Hill House, so that seemed like a good opportunity to have a look around the gardens. It’s a bit of a climb (the clue is in the name) but you get some great views on the way. I also passed the other train station that has trains to Oban and Fort William – it’s so tiny and surrounded by trees. Must go somewhere on it this Summer.
Hill House itself looked amazing against the blue skies. It was designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh and I will be back sometime to tour the inside when it’s a bit quieter. I had a walk around the gardens though.
I also gave in and made that chocolate banana cake from Smitten Kitchen. I overcooked it a tiny bit because I used a brownie pan and I have a fan oven but it was still amazing – a bit like a brownie but you can taste the banana too.
Wondering where my Day in the Life post is? Well, I did it as Mayor mar-c, my Animal Crossing character! It was Bunny Day so there was lots of fun stuff going on. You can read all about it at Quincy & Usagi – my sister’s doing one too for her town.
