Arrived safely

If rather tired....we're now in North Tolsta with friends after six bus rides...should have been five but one engine died!! and a two and three quarter hour ferry trip.   Luckily it wasn't rough, but the swell over the Minches was bad and I had my first ever dose of "mal de mer"!

Today we have woken late after the best night's sleep for a long time, despite sleeping on the floor (on a foam mat I hasten to add!) and have been for two walks. I've taken many photos, but I'll not be posting any here until after we get home. I've been generously lent time on our friends computer.

The weather here changes every few minutes.  We've seen beautiful sea and skyscapes, sun and fluffy clouds then rain as we walked home from the Welsh Traeth Mawr, in the Gaelic quite similar!

The Pirate is feeling very happy, having managed to get some phone signal-then he was driven indoors by the  wild wind. Am I allowed to be smug as I have signal with a different company?!

He is feeling much better after our walks and fresh air and we're looking forward to making the most of our time here-although it is "sod's law" that one of the Lewis Bloggers I'd hoped to meet will be off the Island until Thursday!!   I'm staying with "Boxes and Bellows", might meet up with "Windy Wanderings"...wish we knew where "Closed Sunday" is!!

It must be beautiful when the sun shines. I hope 'Boxes and Bellows' isn't as grumpy as she claims to be.

I had to Google North Tolsta but it looks lovely there :)
Are you there for New Year?
I can't keep track of you GZ!

Best Wishes and Hugs X
