Such has been The Island of Mull in the last few days. Two or three ago, we were all held prisoner by impossibly stormy weather with no ferries at all running from, or too Mull and Oban.
However the last two days have been simply wonderful with a yellow sea out from my office right now and blue water and the South of Mull and Iona very distant bobbing way out to sea and the horizon.
I have never seen Mull and the National Scenic Area of the west coast so wonderful.
Chatting to a few people this morning all agreed that it was like summer in the Med with no wind, very warm and exotic views wherever you looked with snow dappling the peaks around Benmore across Loch na keal..
It is after all only February but also my birthday today and as I get on with Mother Nature so well maybe this was all meant as a birthday present for me. So thank you very much to her for such a magical day today.
