A beautiful Easter day


The View

These past few days have been getting better and better weather-wise, today reaching perfection I think. BB approves of this change and has been enjoying the great outdoors with her family. She doesn’t venture far but seems very content.


All of our guests had an early start this morning so we had the opportunity to take this season’s first ‘3 Hour Holiday’. I swapped apron for motorcycle helmet and off we went, Talisker Bay being our destination. We had our picnic on a large flat rock and just enjoyed the scenery…

We were even treated to the sight of a pod of dolphins in the bay but they were a bit too far away to get a decent photo so you’ll just have to take my word for it! It was a joy to see the newly unfurled leaves on the trees…

…and adding even more colour to the vibrant spring day was this unusual Skye resident.

    It’s looking good, Christine. I like the look of Talisker Bay – we will have to visit it in May. 🙂

      It’s beautifully rugged Diane. When the tide is lower, it’s a nice scramble around to the sea stack which you can see there.

      I thought of you Cecilia when we saw these guys. They were very tame as I guess they’re used to getting treats from visitors. One of them definitely had his beady eye on a Spanish visitor’s apple!!

    Christine; such a glorious day for you; lovely to see all the lush green and your beautiful resident.

      Oh, the day was so much appreciated after the wet and windy winter. I think that we probably looked like a couple of simpletons, wandering around with silly grins on our faces!
