More Photos of Ness

I said the other day in this post that I would post more photos of our time with newly met friends last week. When they visited the second time, we had a (mostly) sunny, if cool and breezy day. Okay, freezing and blowing a hoolie, if you must know.

This wee fella found this flag somewhere in our house, and was happy to wave it proudly. 
By the way, this fella was such a cute little guy. He was seriously in danger of being kidnapped, both by me and by the girls.

Adorable.

The next photos were taken at Port of Ness, a harbour very close to the northernmost tip of Lewis, but round to the East. Because it's on the east coast, it tends to be much more sheltered that the seas we normally see, which are on the west coast - the Atlantic coast - of the island.



As you can see, the sea was fairly choppy this day. We had a fairly stiff breeze, and, more significantly, it was a north-easterly ... hence the waves here.






This photo is taken from one of the highest points in Ness, and shows part of the district.

We then drove to the Butt.



Once again folks: the BUTT is the TOP. Got it?

Good ;)

All very logical.



And then to Our Beach.




Oh, by the way.... erm, Spot the crofter in the photos .. !







What a great time we had with this family. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: I love the internet!
