My parents were visiting for 10 days, and here are some pictures taken on trips around the island.
… the past few months! Mainly with the allotment and the polytunnel, lots of gardening – less travelling. Here are the fruits of our recent labour! (and our chicken! yes, we have 4 chicken now! Bridghid, Edith, Emma and Ohnezahn). 2 Light Sussex and two hybrids. They are just 2 weeks off point of lay, so in a few weeks time we’ll hopefully have some eggs 🙂 I’m in love with them already.
Fantastic trip to Bosta/Great Bernera, 4 hours of rambling around, found a great peninsula just off Bosta Beach. Screamed like a girl when driving there – the little green machine managed the steep hills/curves/drops there quite well though. You know you’re driving mostly on single lane roads, that when you’re back on two lanes you brake for oncoming traffic, looking for the nearest passing place…
Amazing weather today and really warm and no wind, so we drove out to Point and went to three places: Tiumpan Head, walked around the coast there, then drove to Flesherin an walked to the Chambered Cairn there, link to Canmore site: https://canmore.org.uk/site/4388/lewis-shulishader-caisteal-mhic-creacail.
On the way back we went to Aignish church again and walked along the beach there.
The beauty of having a car now is that we can just drive off on a Sunday, and that we can go to places we couldn’t go before.
Today we checked out a few places around Callanish, and Callanish VI – which we haven’t been before.
The weather was mostly fine, apart from a 15 minute spell of hail & rain.
