A Day Exploring Our Beautiful Home Town

Posted by Jane J
(dictation by Jane M)


A rare day off together prompted us into starting our blog. I offered to wear this exquisite dress which inspired a step back in time to an Edwardian dream of colourful autumnal days.






Greenock graveyard was our starting point with the backdrop of interesting, very old and ornate headstones and tombs.
We both love exploring old graveyards, yes we know its a bit weird!! They only time we got freaked was when we noticed the date on a random headstone we photographed had the date of the 7th of November which is the date of Jane M's birthday.
Nontheless this only caused a moment of reflection for the lives loved and lost.













We moved to the picturesque Lunderston Bay and then finishing up at the tomb of General Darroch in the beautiful and eerie Gourock Park.














We did receive several odd stares but this only encouraged us to continue on our quest.
