Burn Baby, Burn.....




Once I returned from an enchanting 30 days in Scotland and Ireland....

I was compelled to ignite those pesky morning pages I'd accumulated over 10 years, 

from 1994 and 2004, as I wrote neatly on the spines of the journals ....

this was a more difficult task than I anticipated

creating mounds of ash

slow to burn

I ended up burning only the loose pages,

figuring burning the books would take hours.

I read some of the entries...picking up snippets of how unhappy I'd been for so many of those years,

before I tossed the rest in the recycle bin.

Feels good to let that go.

Adios...for now

Yesterday had us depart Skye

 

with weather clearing and still lochs....

we drove through the stunning highlands on our way to Glasgow to spend our last days in Scotland...

I've decided poking at this piece of glass is NO fun, and posting from remote locations is tedious and time consuming often producing no results...

I'm going to recap our adventures when I get home in October....

So Adieu ....

 

While I take advice from an old friend...

and

BE HERE NOW

Wet...

                                                                            The weather has been seriously wet on The Isle of Skye.

 

Not too chilly though....in the low 60's for the high and low 50's for the low.
It has not dampened our spirits though, and with rain pants on board we have been trapesing about this magical island.
We have also been eating our way through Scotland....the smoked salmon has been the best...buttery and delicious.
Tomorrow we head for Glasgow....the land of Charles MacIntosh

This one's for Kelly....

Real time Isle of Skye...

 

One small photo per day is all the speed here will allow....

We've passed this graveyard three times now going back and forth from our B & B on Skye...

The weather has turned to driving rain .... not totally unexpected

Good news ... no midges.

Houston we have a problem....

Try as I might, it has been impossible to post my blogs due to slow internet speeds where we we've been.

So I'm going to try a brief version....

Weather has been warm & sunny and cool and rainy.

With lots of

 .

Whiskey, Plaid & 
white knuckle driving down narrow winding roads....
(To be fair, it's me the navigator with the white knuckles, gripping my seat as we get too close to the curb...)

Let's see if this works....
