Things have been quite tough for my parents of late. My Dad had major surgery in December, and his recovery didn't go smoothly at first. However, he's getting back to something approaching normal now, for which we're very thankful.
For me, the highlight of the day was a short trip to the shore in Irvine. It was a beautiful but chilly day, with lots to see. We couldn't stay long for my Dad's sake (although others were complaining about the cold more than he was!).
I was in my element, scrambling around the rocks and reminiscing a bit about the way the harbour used to be, taking photos and enjoying the sea air. But the abiding image of the day was the photo that I took of my parents - smiling and happy.
Definitely something to remember for a long time and to recall frequently!
