We continued our trip through the Highlands after departing Loch Ness. 


The scenery was breathtaking.  I could have driven around the countryside for days!

We passed mountains covered in heather, which was in bloom:

I have the day off tomorrow.  I’ll be taking a co-worker for a flight in the morning, then I have to work on my RAA presentation for Monday.  I’m not too sure how many people are going to come out on Thanksgiving, but I sure would be thankful if a slew of them did!

Today’s symptoms:  I’m still dealing with some pain in my eyes and a headache.  I went into overdrive at work and that really helped to keep my mind off of how I was feeling.
