A Complete Change of Scene

OK enough is enough! Yes the shed was a lifesaver, shopping on line is probably here to stay, and I've improved no end as a cellist, but the time of breakout finally came. I found it terribly difficult to lose the Covid-stone that I walloped on over the summer, but, I did manage to starve off a few pounds before saying 'ta ta' to Birdwell for a whole week, and 'hello' Scotland. The pictures say it all. We had a smashing holiday on the Isle of Mull. 

And we're off! 6.15a.m. in our Skoda hire car, packed with provisions for the week.

2.45 p.m. on the Lochaline to Fishnish Ferry

The Ferry at Fishnish September 4 2020

Bye, Bye, Isle of Mull, we loved you. 

Back home with our new Mull Pottery mugs.

Putting these photo's on this blog I realise there are some missing. When we went to Iona I took pics of the Monastery, the church and a wonderful travelling musician called Robbie who played guitar and sang for us. I even made a short video, all sadly lost as not having internet failed to backup. So to Robbie and Elisa, a big thank you for entertaining us, and blessings for successful travels.

The Abbey on Iona.

That's my man!

Our first peak on Iona

So, what is this? 

I'll leave you with this poser. I can't find out what this little beauty is. Have I discovered a rare botanical species?

It's been that long since I did my blog that Google have changed the format and it's baffled me. Hopefully I will get the hang of it by next time. 

Keep safe everyone! Social distance! Wear a face covering! Wash your hands!

Bye for now,
Love Jane x
