Cycling with the Loch Ness Monster - Inverness Day 2 & 3

Hi everyone ^^ Miss me?

I just came back from Ireland yesterday!! :P Missing my friends there already T_T

I really wanna blog about Belfast but for now I have some unfinished business lol~.. As promised, here's the Inverness post! Please note that some of the photos in this post (with 'Sa's' on bottom right) were taken by Sa with either her Nikon D60 (+ 70-300 Nikkon lens VR) and Canon Ixus 879 IS.

2nd day - our cycling day! 
You have no idea how happy we were to see Mr.Sun high up in the sky! Our destination?

Loch Ness Lake!
Some of you were asking where Inverness is~ well, this place is famous for their lake monster, Nessie, that lives in the deep freshwater Loch Ness near the city of Inverness in Northern Scotland. This is my 4rd time in Inverness I think.

So yea, we were going to cycle around the lake where the monster lives :D Yay

10am
We arranged a meet up with Cameron of Happy Tours to get the bikes we hired.
20pounds for 24hours

11am
1st stop - the Park

 11.30am
The playground

Went on top of the hill and kept on cycling...
My favoarite shot

1pm
After 3 hours, we got really hungry (and thirsty! -Nano and I didn't bring water with us, lol).
Fortunately we found a small restaurant in the country side.

Oakwood Traditional Scottish Restaurant

The restaurant is rather UNIQUE!

And we had the best lunch ever.


2.30pm
After a great meal

 ...we continued our journey. 
 But things were different by then...
Lol seriously....
We have to use the road. And it was so scary!

Not to mention... how hard and tiring it is...

 Aside from Sa and Nano who went to gym frequently, I haven't work out for such a long time! 
And thus... I was the person left behind all the time.

But finally at 4pm

Owh, so there was this castle on the opposite side of the lake..

4.30pm
After a lot of cycling, we decided to turn around. Afraid there would be no lights at night la.. lol. 

5.30pm
We came back to Oakwood restaurant again for some sugar. 


6.30pm
Going back to the city~ we relaxed a bit

~ till the sun nearly sets.. (sunsets at 7.30pm)

At the end of the day~.. 

Lol~ the end

Wait wait, 3rd day lagi! 
Hrrrr~ to lazyyy~..

Ok la, 
We went around the City, bought stuffs and lived happily ever after.
 What the hell is Kuku Lala? Its just how pu3 says Ukulele
Owh yes,the most amazing person, ever.

Lots of love everyone!

**~Pu-3~** said...

Owh yah~ cycling in the cold is somewhat nice coz when the body heats up of intense exercise, the cold weather balances it. :)

I think the loch ness is some kind of ancient lake dinosaur :D so yea, rod-shaped?

zzkang said...

i mean the lake is long (refer to the map)...heheh...

**~Pu-3~** said...

Awwww~ the lake, sorry, I got confused :P hehehe. Yea~ i donno the shape is like that either, it looks oval to me lol ;D

Nay-MrsNurl said...

so nice to be able to cycle like that (minus the turun naik bukit hihi),,
i believe in nessie,,somehow i just do =)

**~Pu-3~** said...

Yea its nice at 1st :D but when i reached the road, i was striving for survival lol.

For me, once ternampak, then they do really exist. ^^ The Loch Ness Exhibition is discouraging, everyone is trying to be scientific.
