Yes, I was quite the slacker over the long weekend. Sorry. Anyway, the Britain Blog continues.
This blog is mostly going to be photos of the amazing views of the Scottish Highlands. The scenery just blew me away. I wish we could have spent days traveling around sites like these:
There was quite a bit more heather blanketing the hills:
The views were so awe-inspiring. My eyes were googly and my mouth was hanging open the entire time. Needless to say, by the time we made it to our next stop, I was completely exhausted:
Fortunately, someone was kind enough to ignore my mother’s pleas to let me stay there while the bus was pulling away, and ran over to wake me up. Hearing that my mother tried to leave me on the side of the road made the next hour or so of the trip a little awkward. Luckily for the little leprechaun, I was quickly cheered up by the scenery:
Jan and I signed up for one of the optional tours – a private boat ride across Lock Lomond.
I think most of the group sat outside, but Jan and I decided to stay indoors. It look a couple of minutes for me to convince Jan that I had us seated at the front of the boat. She didn’t believe me that we were simply backing up and turning around. Anyway, more wonderful pictures to take:
Check out the nicely labeled “cave” that Rob Roy used as a hide out. Apparently, Robert the Bruce also hid from the English Troops in this cave.
I love this cute sign over a doorway on the boat:
Yet again, I decided it was nappy-time:
Before laying down, Jan and I slugged back a coffee and whiskey. Perhaps I drank it a little too quickly:
Yes, very lady-like.
One last photo before hitting land:
We were both so glad we signed up for the boat cruise – it was more fun than I thought it would be.
To be continued….
Today’s symptoms: I was a little tired after going for a flight last night than having our Recreational Aircraft Association meeting. I’ve had tons of bone-crushing pains in three of my fingers and a thumb throughout the day. I hope they don’t continue into the night so I can sleep!
