Absolutely breathtaking–pictures don’t do it justice.

Wow! Pretty awesome. πŸ™‚ It’s the kind of picture that makes me want to close my eyes, take a deep breath, and imagine I’m there…

Such a glorious view. That is something I could wake up to. It looks like another masterpiece God created. It makes me wonder just how spectacular the Garden of Eden really was.

Beth: Exactly what we’ve been saying! Like it was meant to be!

Jodie: Yeah, “almost” just for you guys! Although I must say, Dalkeith certainly has some of the most beautiful forest walks I’ve ever taken, bar-none. The weather has been PERFECT, although I understand we’re supposed to get drenched tomorrow.
