So a pause to review preceding chapters and also take photos and sketches of Glen Nochty. Being winter the bright colours of my earlier chapters were not evident and a pastel hue seemed to be more relevant! But will play with the colours in Chapter 9 In the meantime have used coloured sugar paper which reflects this gentler tone. By a strange coincidence I looked at the geological map of the area- its one of my quirks- and guess what!

|Ref 6.8b 3|
|Ref 6.8b 4 i and ii|
For the samples in 4 used colour to play with the shapes 5 and 2 in the first part of Chapter 8 which appeared as 3 and 5 in Chapter 6. Should have kept my sample numbers in some sequence to have made cross referencing easier.

The samples in 5 left revisited images from Loch Courusk and the wave patterns (bottom image 5 ii) in the sand as in 8.5. Neither were not successful and had written all over them, 'need to revisit' but it did reminded me of a more interesting image I had used for my notebook cover on my wanderings around the coastline of Scotland. The fact that a footprint causes sand to dry out as you walk always intrigued me as do contour lines hence the drawing in 6.
But before go into Chapter 9 just wanted to put in a line from a poem that we used for our Walking To Health group Christmas card, WH Davies 's poem What is this life. We were on a walk in October this year when the title came to mind and no one could get the author, although we all knew the first lines. Googling it I was delighted to read it and these lines about water and sky leapt out:
No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night.
