Today we took the opportunity to buy some bits which we had forgotten to take with us, like my walking socks!! We drove into Kirkcudbright – a pleasant little town. We knew we were back in the countryside when the only shops open on a Sunday are the newsagents and Tesco!! As no socks could be found we drove to Newton Stewart – this looked considerably larger and thought we stood a chance of finding some socks.
After a pleasant drive along the A75 we arrived in the town. After parking up and find some socks we went for a walk along the main street towards the bridge. We took the opportunity to photograph the river.
After a spot of lunch (fish n’ chips of course!) we drove to Galloway Forest Park for a walk on one of the forest trails. We chose the middle length walk. Shortly after setting off we found this little fella:
Upon some research later we discovered he is a juvenile Common Toad as they are brick coloured.
