From Here to Eternity in Southern Skye.
The weather is dreich and I’ve been watching missed epiodes of ‘Call the Midwife.’ There’s nothing quite like observing the drama of childbirth to make me grateful for a simple rainy day, a warm cup of cardomom tea in hand and giving birth to nothing but contentment.
Not much doing for my tumblr posts today. I’ve been deep into the edit of my book, a year off the job was useful. When I had just written it, I was painfully attached to every word, even the bad ones. One year on and I’ve gained some objectivity and hopefully, the results will speak for themselves.
I’ve long loved the movie Local Hero, largely for its beautiful setting. Have a look at this sight for sore eyes…

…and then there’s this. Wherever you are or whatever you do today, I hope you can claim a moment or two for yourself. There’s beauty everywhere if you want to see it.

…and now for a bit of a change, a Mediterranean scene, taken on the south end of Skye! A glorious day of heat and light and the blue green water, the waves beckoning, whispering, ‘come in, you know you’ll like it.’

Ever wondered what lies deep in the heart?

Following on the colours of Scotland theme, the orangey-yellow brown seaweed drew me down to this beach at Mill Bridge. I found periwinkles of every colour, a profusion of blue rope tangled in a tree, startling green seaweed and a small brown eel.

The tide had turned and was beginning to come in fast. A bit further out in the bay the wee islands were already surrounded, and the beach was vanishing rapidly. Algy sat on the warm sand, close to the edge of the water, and stretched out his legs towards the sea. He loved trying to guess which of the tiny waves would be the one to wash over his toes …
Algy, I love this! It’s so restful watching the waves advance on the shore and your little toes.
