Joys birthday

Well it was  a lovely few days  on Iona for the family yesterday celebrating  Joy’s birthday.

The first day was beautiful on the northern tip of the island with white sand everywhere and jet black rocks poking through it all. The  sea was the same as it is in winter, being very blue and clear.

We travelled back yesterday after breakfast at the Saint Columba Hotel and a brisk morning walk across the Island.

The sea was a bit rough for the sail back, but it created a few laughs among the visitors on board.

Today we had decided to go to The Ardnamurchan Peninsular  and visit the Stevenson Lighthouse and the amazing ocean views from there.

The morning had been a bit grey but the afternoon was very sunny and the sail back to Mull and home brought dozens of Manx Shearwaters to race around us.

This evening I felt I should do this posting to try and get up to date, so forgive me if it seems a bit hurried.


Tomorrow’s another day as Scarlet said.


MY next wildlife tours are on 1st of August and the 3rd, when I have spaces by the way.
