Hope the neighbours weren’t watching.:witless:
i hope they were.
i hope there is an unexpected rush on bubbles & wands.
i hope the investment bankers are perplexed.
i hope the sharebots ricochet.

Barb, I've always said your work is so ingeneously magical and should be published as a coffee table book. Now, it's also clear just how prolific you are. I see many books ahead of you so you must scout out real estate for......

Nice re-write but sadly much too late, us girls have been doing just that for quite a long time. We enjoy virtual holidays together every year too.
Never needing to meet is part of the charm, as for the pyjamas l really couldnít comment :friendly_wink:

Thanks Daniel, the adorable little chap made it easy by totally ignoring me following him under the tree. We first saw him doing the rounds of outdoor cafe tables on a farm (big sign warning of thieving chicken) he got lots of Ahhh’s but no handouts so stalked off with me in hot pursuit.

At St Mary's airport it's rocky all the way onto the runway. Here's a plane about to touch down.



23695

The airport is on the top of a hill, so visible from much of the tiny island.

23696


In fact the runway goes up one side of the hill and down the other. Professional pilots reverse thrust during landings to stop before going over the hump but amateur pilots making occasional landings often continue over it. It used to come as a nasty surprise that the tarmac ended and the downhill side of the runway was just grass but now the tarmac has been extended beyond the crest of the hill, so they don't get the impression that they've gone off the end of the runway as they used to.

Standing on an island at the mouth of Loch Duich the first Castle was built in the 13th C to protect against Viking raiders, sadly its role in the Jacobite risings led to its destruction.
The ruin was rebuilt as near as possible to the original design starting in 1911, with a few essentials added... a bridge, running water, bathrooms and lighting as a holiday home.
The tide was out when we were there (it’s a sea loch)

That flipping spellchecker changed the Castles name it’s Eilean.
