A Journey to Town

Just before I go and begin my packing ...

You remember, don't you, that the Builder and I are heading to London for a few days.

This trip to London is his Christmas present from me. You remember - that Christmas present that he paid for, and that is shared with me. Best kind, I say.

Anyway, I'm not on here to talk about the trip - I'm sure there will be plenty time for that - but to show you a  few photos from yesterday's journey to town. I didn't have my camera, so the photos are from my phone, but the day was so lovely, I couldn't resist doing some stopping and clicking en route.

Nice place to come for some trout fishing...

I'm guessing the folks here are hoping for a whole lot of rain to fall this coming month.

Looking north 

and looking back towards Stornoway.

The day was almost windless, and even though the actual temperature was only a few degrees above freezing, it felt gorgeously mild in the sun.

On the home straight, I stopped to take a photo of this beautiful swan.

And to finish off, I snapped this jet which was already heading across the Atlantic. The smoke above the horizon was from the still burning moor fire. This was the 'plane I snapped five photos back, taken from the Barvas Moor.


  1. Thanks for those pictures! Nice to see the sights along that road! We've got your wind and will send it back to you asap!

  2. Enjoy your Christmas present to the Builder! ((hug))

  3. It was a beautiful day, the boy and I spent the afternoon on Shawbost beach - perfect. Have a great trip!


  4. Beautiful. Hope you have a wonderful trip! Will you be around on Sunday?

  5. I know a day without wind was such a treat! Lovely photos! And do have fun in London w/ the builder! Can't wait to hear all about it once you return.

  6. How did you take that picture looking back to Stornoway while you were driving?

  7. I just like the helpful info you provide for your articles.
    I'll bookmark your weblog and take a look at once more here regularly. I am fairly certain I'll learn lots of new stuff right right here!
    Best of luck for the next!

  8. It seems the Gujarat investors are returning to
    real estate business after an interval. But many people don't know how to earn profits this way. This all depends on where you are thinking of investing.
