Well we just had a beautiful pour of unpolluted Hebridean rain for about 30 minutes, when it then turned tropical and i felt I was in the Cook Islands again.
Both are magical places but there is something about the West coast of Scotland that looks right when visitors are here. In the Cook Islands its all very Polynesian and can be too hot I feel and even the rain is too warm at times.
In short I feel that this is our more natural habitat and after all the Cook Islands are very very remote. But the natives are lovely people, as if untouched yet by the rest of the World
