Saturday 27 March 2010 - A Long Day In The Car

On the road again, for 10 hours, but well worth it. We are at a favourite spot. It's called Tigh na Mara. Occasional showers and spectacular rainbows accompanied us today, with sun specs being needed for most of the time.

We chased Andrew, Rosemary and Lucy, who are installed nearby, and Ken and Anne, whose luxurious quarters are called Hallival. Our own 'house mates' will arrive tomorrow.

Ken and Anne cooked us a lovely meal, then R+A arrived to polish off the wine. They needed something after appearing in a very bedraggled state due to slightly inclement meteorological conditions.

Today's postcard was taken on arrival here, from the same place as the header that adorns this blog. Today's conditions on Loch Broom were somewhat different less photogenic!

Greetings from Hong Kong, where it's much more 'clement' today than Loch Broom. Looking forward to seeing some more pics of my favourite part of the world...

Ah yes, a lovely spot. Seeing the Isle of Lewis in Loch Broom makes us want to pack and head north! Have a great trip and good luck with the weather.

It's well worth the long trip to have the stunning scenery on your doorstep, even if you can't see it through the merk, you know it's there. Hope the weather is kinder than is forecast, looking forward to your reports from one of my favourite places.
