Outdoor Excursions

It's amazing how things develop. After all, this blog started out as a news section for the rest of the website. With encouragement from readers, it has become a place for relating my countryside wanderings and musings about the world of outdoor activity. Walking, cycling and photography all are part of what I do out-of-doors and, hopefully, they will continue to inspire me to keep adding entries on here. Of course, there needs to be something of interest to you, dear reader, too and I hope that's the case. Thanks for coming.

New site design launched

December 5th, 2006

It’s lashing outside my window as I write this, the continuation of an unsettled spell of weather that has pervaded the last few weeks. While the sun has been out and about, blustery showers have been too and last weekends weather warning caused me to stay at home, though I might have enjoyed a reasonable outing on Saturday. My staying in gave me the chance to busy myself with the finalisation of a site redesign that has been ongoing for several months, suffering stops and starts along the way. Apart from being more modern (I hope) it also offers more opportunity for extension than its predecessor. I have also taken the opportunity to reorganise some of the content. For instance, the photo gallery site directory has been moved here along with my personal potted histories of my family and the Scottish parliament (see Articles in the sidebar). These were formerly part of the visitor information directories and the news directories are the only interlopers there now. A little tweaking remains but it is mostly done, apart from the inevitable evolution that happens to any living website.
