Meanwhile the new suburbs head towards Forres while the photographer contemplates 'Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues'

This evening looking over towards Nairn from the new (today anyway) outer limits of the town. There are a whole new system of paths up from the what used to be the old quarries at the bottom of the brae, an area where old vehicles and shed and caravans had long succumbed to nature. Now it has been cleaned up (but not too much) and there are a series of paths leading up to the new schemes. It occurred to the editor that he had no idea of what the new streets are called or even if the this newer part has a name other than the all-encompassing 'Lochloy'. Anyway on the way back into town the lyrics of a certain song came to mind:
'Up on Housing Project Hill
It's either fortune or fame
You must pick up one or the other
Though neither of them are to be what they claim '
Enjoy the song and happy midsummer to all the Gurn's readers :-)
