A good day that just got BETTER and BETTER. An early visit to the stones, in the misty drizzle, having slept by the jetty in their shadow. Then it tipped down, but did I care? Not me, I was tucked up inside the café, rain lashing at the window, with power and wifi and delicious coffee. And there I stayed until Annie arrived with the ‘Celtic Goddess’ and we swapped vans. This one is ‘slow and steady’ which is just fine by me. A 1998 VW T4 long wheelbase for those of you interested in such matters.
Off to Great Bernera and to visit the reconstruction of an Iron Age house in a settlement beside the beach. Very briefly:
- A fellow stringmaker
- A tide bell
- Bog asphodel
- Heavenly overnight spot
More details on all this later, because the SUN IS SHINING. White sandy beach, sparkling turquoise water, sunny skies. Am I in Greece? I have to pinch myself, this is the Outer Hebrides. Is there anywhere more gorgeous than Scotland in the sunshine?
