Nearing the end of day five of the dreaded lag, I’d hoped this flying sickness would be gone by now. All good measures have been to no avail, not the syncing to local time, no napping, getting fresh air, exercise and sunlight (the rainforest isn’t obliging at the moment), healthy eating and regular hours, nor the melatonin I’ve been taking each night. My body clock is still very much set to Skye time. I suppose it’s quite fitting as people on the island talk about ‘Skye time,’ meaning things will get done eventually, and in their own good time. To incomers, this can cause considerable frustration.
Apologies for the lack of recent posts, I’ll be back eventually, in my own good time, I’m just waiting for my body to catch up!
The puffin equivalent of going down to the pub.
Near the Isle of Canna in the Inner Hebrides, Scotland.
Sunlight is so beautiful when it has clouds to overcome.
(Ardvasar, Isle of Skye - this morning.)
The puffins on Canna are in an awful hurry…
Sigh…what an image of tranquility.

An almost elvish land of blue, looking toward the Skye bridge. As contentious as this bridge was, even more so its previously scandalous tolls, it’s an impressive piece of engineering and design.
Thank you ‘bluepueblo’ for an image that beckons me, sings the siren song of the Hebrides - my home. The beautiful Old Man of Storr,” Bodach nan Storr. Dinosaurs walked this land, you can match your foot to the the gigantic prints they left behind. Racing clouds that seem to pull you with them, where are you taking me - I don’t care, I just want to go.

Have you ever fantasised about just getting away from the encumbrances of life, work, computer, phone and a never done ‘to do’ list? Go to the Knoydart Peninsula on the west coast of Scotland, go to Doune and forget about the have to’s and start doing what you want to. The scenery in this remote part of Scotland is breathtaking; wild and unspoiled with a profusion of wildlife. Walk, sail, swim (if you’re hardy), frolic with the dolphins and just relax. For more information, click on the link. I’m off - are you coming?
Doesn’t the eagle have such a majestic and fierce beauty? This one was taken off the coast of north Skye, from a boat out of Portree. If you should ever happen to be there, the Skipper of the Stardust takes people out. No guarantee that you’ll see the king of the skies but isn’t he worth the wait…
