Canny is a predominantly Scottish word which means shrewd, clever, pleasant or nice.
I’m Scottish, though unless you follow my Instagram you might never guess.
Today we went to see something of extraordinarily canny beauty – the Falkirk Kelpies.
Below are some photos. The links to stuff will appear on my return 🙂
C is also for Celtic myths, of which a kelpie is one. It is said they are shapeshifting creatures who live by fresh water, transforming into horses to lure humans to them and, when climbed upon to ride home, dives into the water, drowning its rider.
If you are in on near Falkirk, it’s well worth it, and the whole Helix park looks gorgeous.
D Kai Wilson- Viola is a prolific and often intensely fun writer. Her favorite genres are Sci-Fi, where her Darkness series is set, Fantasy, where she writes up actual play from RPGs she never got to run, urban fantasy, mostly inspired by her bad idea bear (aka her partner, Tempus, and mental health advocacy, as she’s got a raft of diagnoses, none of them particularly pleasant, but none that tend to hold her down for long either
When not writing, and still *thinking* about writing often enough to get caught out, Kai can be found training with her beloved at the Ludosport Academy they belong to, hanging out with family and friends gaming, or enjoying exploring parts of the world they’ve got access to at the time.
A nature and animal lover, Kai is a writer because she has to, because she loves it, and because it’s fun. She is the mother of two cats, two adults and lives in the Cotswolds, UK, with her beloved.
