DESERTPENGUIN,

I've finished 246 miles of my 540 mile goal. Due to the flu I've been less active the last few weeks. The next town I will be passing through on virtual map is Keith. Where are you going next not that you've finished your virtual goal?

This is my last post on this thread. I have enjoyed walking to Edinburgh castle. It brought back memories of my childhood. I hope you enjoy the rest of your trek. God bless,

I decided to add a link to songs of the church that have recently, in the past 10-15 years, come out to the UK. Here is one that I think you will enjoy. The words are very powerful.

I remember going by graveyards as a child and thinking it was odd to see sheep grazing there. They used to let sheep cut the grass out of respect for the dead. The title of this picture is "Peace at Last."

DESERTPENGUIN,

Sounds like we can also have a book chat along with that tea. Bunyan, Lewis, and Tolkein are among my favorite writers.

76 miles (August) I'm enjoying a countryside amble in the lake district on the way to Scotland. See you soon. I'm looking forward to that cup of tea.
www.panoramio.com/photo/4206555 I think this scene is rather mystical. No wonder Tolkein and Lewis wrote like they did.

I'm trying to find out which direction you are going so that I can meet up with you and have that cup of tea. I tried to find Ft. Williams on google maps but couldn't place it. I just arrived at Hill Top Farm and am being formally introduced to Peter Rabbit and his cousin Benjamin. lol

I'm reading through a travel book that has lots of pictures, but nothing I could post.

Where are you getting your pictures? I've been enjoying looking at them.

Love your picture today and Pilgrim's Progress.

Pilgrim's Progress is my favorite book next to the Bible. I've read it a number of times through the years in a number of versions, but I always come back to the original version John Bunyan published in 1675.

I went by lots of farm land today. This is a picture the King's Highway. It reminds me of Pilgrim's Progress. I can imagine Christian walking down a road like this.

As of today I've walked 120 miles on my virtual walk through Scotland with 420 to go before I return to my starting point in Edinburgh.

This last week has been only a casual stroll around the ruins of Kilchurn Castle overlooking Loch Awe while I rest at a near by inn from surgery. But, I've enjoyed reading about it from a travel book and wondering what the area must have been like when my mother's family lived along Lock Awe during the time of King James I.

It's been centuries since our McClintock clan moved from Scotland first to Ireland then the United States. Maybe a historical fiction is brewing for me to write at a later date.

You are doing great! I hope to get back to a more steady pace next week. Surgery last week along with teaching Vacation Bible School this week is keeping me more then a little tired.

Glad to have you with us Mrs. Doyle. Gracenotes, I managed to locate where you are. You are about 400 miles north of me at this point. Which direction will you be headed when you're felling better? I seem to be walking through Manchester, England right now. I remember taking the train with my mother to go shopping here. Below is a picture of one of the bridges that I probably went on as a kid.

Hello. DesertPenguin told me about this thread. I started a virtual walk from Land's End to John O'Groats in January and I am now in Scotland. I update my progress on my SparkPage every week. I've been to Scotland twice and it is a beautiful place.

I am at goal and maintaining. Thanks to my friends on SparkPeople and in the real world who motivate me every day.

My healthy BMI weight range is a generous 65kg to 55kg. My Spark goal is 60kg.

I'm just a few miles northeast of Glasgow. My next town will be Oban.

I will try to post a map of the route I'm following on sparkspage in the next few days . . . if I can figure out how to do it.

All I'm getting when I try to upload the map is a black box.

I seem to be walking through Stockpot. My sister was born there. Here is a picture of the town hall. I am on my way to Glasgow. I'm not very familiar with Scotland, so I am not sure where you are resting up. I would like to see where you are.

Good for you!

I've never been to the British Isles, but would love do visit Scotland someday. My mother's maiden name was McClintock. That tells you something of family roots.

I'm having fun just reading about the places I'm virtually walking.

I decided to start my trip early. I walked 3.5 miles today around the little village that I lived in long ago. Here is a picture of a church that used to ring its bells every night.

After surgery yesterday my virtual walk is on hold for a few days. Wouldn't it be restful to recover at an ancient castle cite! Since my journey is pausing near the Kilchurn Castle on Loch Awe, that's where I pick to put my feet up.
emoticon
The castle was actually struck by lightening sometime ago and burned out, but this is a virtual trip, right. Maybe I could put my feet up with a neighboring family and do research on the area during my recovery.

I found this thread again this morning so I'll go back to posting my progress here. This weekend I reach the 100 mile mark on my virtual walk through Scotland leaving 440 miles to go.

I'm excited about this leg of the trip as it takes me through Loch Awe, the area my mother's family originated from in Scotland.

Now if we could just afford to take the trip for real. Wouldn't that be exciting!
