You know how it is, nothing happens for weeks on end, then suddenly everything is going mad and you’re racing to keep up.
It’s been like that here for the last few days – but in a fabulous way.
A friend of ours loves to fly, and last weekend he decided the weather was perfect for a trip around the Scottish Islands and Highlands. The Highlands are my favourite place – and so I leapt at the chance to go hopping around.
We went up the West coast, stopping first at Gigha – the airstrip is a field – you can just about see it in the picture…
Next day and a view of Iona and Staffa
And then we stopped for fuel at Stornoway
And then off around the coast of the mainland….
Then the lighthouse at Cape Wrath
And Balnakiel Beach
We spent the night near Forres and then off again from Inverness down the Great Glen – I kept looking, but no sign of Nessie…
Before flying back through the Lake District and home.
Now I’m back it all feels rather like a dream and I have to keep pinching myself to remember that it really happened. An amazing experience I’m sure I’ll never forget.
Getting back into the swing of things at home again now and looking forward to the girls breaking up for summer. Hope you’re enjoying the weather and staying cool.
Theresa, do you happen to know what this is? He was flying about on the sand dunes at Barra – so pretty and strikingly vivid.
