Last week, the Unicorn had a birthday, which was celebrated in the usual style by disappearing off in the van to find somewhere beautiful and off the beaten track to hide for a while.
This little adventure took us up to the borders of Scotland, to a wonderful little village called Auldgirth, and to a beautiful old farm.
The farm was literally bursting with original features, and hidden oddments that hinted to the farms former uses.
And as we looked around the old barns we found one of the resident barn owls. We quickly snapped a few shots before leaving him to roost in peace. Hopefully he wasn't too traumatised by the disturbance.
It was a lovely get away, and despite the definite Autumnal chill in the air in the mornings, the September sun shone on us all weekend.
