Solitude

Day Six: “Solitude”

The state of being alone, or a lonely and uninhabited place.

I need to find the correct quote. A French explore/sailor wrote a book, years ago, where one part he talked about being alone. He said that, he felt more alone on the Metro in the Paris rush hour. Compared to being on his boat alone in the middle of the ocean. 

This I can totally relate to. The more remote I am, the more I feel at peace, relaxed and funny enough feel like I’m with my friends. Like here walking all alone, ok Peli is with me, on the Farewell Spit on the South Island of NZ.

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.

Day Three: “Water” — Image Orientation

A few days late with this one, sorry chaps. Was a bit busy with life and also split on what do do with this challenge.

I started to click through my old photos for ideas and found this one of a water tower in Portland, OR. So thinking out of the box and not following Today’s tip, oops.

Uig bothy

Bothy

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.
