I'm back all too soon....

For the most part I will let the photos talk for themselves. Hot-hubby and I had a wonderful two days away (well, one night, but I want to big it up!) on the west coast. There was no mobile signal anywhere. We were incommunicado. It was warm and sunny, we sat outside the pub (no kids around because they're all in school) with a pint of local beer, or two. Life just doesn't get much better.
a view on the way

The sign at the beginning of the road....

The view up the valley

and the view back down the road we just drove

and the view from the top of the highest road in Britain! That's Skye and Raasay you can see, what doesn't show is how cold and windy it was up there!

Camp Highland Madness! Look at that sunshine!! I actually regretted not having sunscreen with me.


Those hills again but from Applecross Bay....well, just outside the pub actually, right before the second pint!!

Having gotten the camping bug we intend to get a better tent, a WAY better bed accommodation (self inflating mattress my eye!), not to forget the chairs or the tea pot and to get some enamel mugs because tea out of plastic mugs borrowed off the kids just doesn't taste good. Next trip, Cairngorm national park...
