Happy Birthday, Dad.

It's my Dad's birthday today. He'd have been 83.
It's funny, 83 sounds so old - I don't picture Dad as an old man when I think of him. He's always younger, fit and strong in my head.
I love this picture of him - I'm not sure where it was taken, but it was definitely long before I was born. I think he had taken my brothers camping.
Dad loved being outdoors - he was never happier than when he was out walking or striding up a mountain. (Except perhaps when he had a DIY job to do for one or other of us...)
So today I am thinking of my Dad even more than usual - wishing he was still here, but grateful that we had him for as long as we did.

Happy Birthday Dad. xxxxx
