We got a new guardian of our local woodland. she reminds me of the Huldra. “The female huldra is almost invariably described as being incredibly, seductively beautiful”, which is she clearly is.
Day Five: “Connect”In this age of social media, we hear the word connect often, don’t we?
The “old” fashioned way to connect with each other, IRL aka In Real Live. Take a train, ride your bike or heck even walk over to your friends and family and then have a cuppa and a natter.
This is my Zen and dream to have a house with the view of a coast line like this.
Hours will go by with me absolutely doing nothing at all and yet be the calmest and happiest I ever can be.
Today is the 5th gotcha day for our rescue dog Tilley.
She has become a little bit naughty lately. A bit like a miss behaving child over at the grandparents. At home she will ask for a carrot, her evening snack, sit bum to the ground and would never take an empty crips bag from the coffee table.
But over MiL, she will just dip her bum when asked to sit. Even taken crips out of the bags of the table. Sneak out into the kitchen and nick a carrot without asking.
Can we get angry with her when she is naughty … nope 🙂
On what I call the road to nowhere, I cycled past this little bouquet right in the middle of the road.
On Uig bay on Isle of Lewis you are spoiled with stunning sunsets.
I wonder who pulled the plug as the lake bed is totally dried out.
We have been “lucky” to a have a brilliant summer with not much rain.
But the local ducks had to abandon their home for the summer.
This lone post was standing by the sea and was well weathered. Sadly you can’t count how many years it has stood there.
I should ride more, I have become lazy over the last half year. Though, I managed to ride a few times in Scotland this year.
This photo is taken in the South Locks area of Isle of Lewis.
Stunning bit of the world.
I have tried for three years to find Mangersta Bothy, aka Eagle’s Nest. The first two years I just went from memory and old maps, mainly no clue of where it would be other than in the Uig area or there about.
This year I found a blog post with a better description of where it would be. Looked on the map and narrowed it further down, and off we went.
I had led us in the right direction and just as I said to Peli I think it should be in this vicinity. She said – there it is! She had spotted the skylight window.
Just of the road on Isle of Lewis, near Uig Bay, there is this little gallery.
I understood that all the plastic used it this artwork was found on the beach.
I really like these Post boxes set into a stone wall. Though you can only post small mail, no attachments is allowed.
Spend a few days in Scotland and had a walk to the hills.
I stopped near this path, just to let the mutt out for a rest as we have been driving for a long time.
Only after we got home I learned that the hill in the background is called Dumyat Hil (Scottish Gaelic: Dùn Mhèad).
