Just the simple quick route to refresh and start my Birthday Day to get back home early and celebrate with my family as my daughter was excited about the party :D
Woke up at 00:30 AM for a very early start, almost 3h of driving to Fort William, found last place to park my car as it was full overnight and then started the walk in darkness...Back home at 14:30, just before my daughter Cheyenne finished school, as planned to enjoy the rest of the day with my family
:wink:
